In progress colored pencil drawing entitled Bill
Colored Pencil on Pastelbord | 9 x 12"

This one has been sitting on my desk for about a month now, getting only occasional attention. Up until now I’ve been more or less unhappy with it, and had considered scrapping it.

And perhaps because I was irritated with it I started to get a lot looser and bolder with my color choices, which I have been laying on thicker and more liberally using cross hatching and large loops of color instead of the tight, meticulous circular patterns I generally use. Suddenly it became a lot more interesting to me.
