Revisited, Revised

When is a drawing completed? Here are some recent examples of revised pieces where I saved scans of the earlier states. All: mixed media on sketchbook paper.
Time to move on!

state 1: colored pencil and wash

final: graphite added to get more contrast


first state: interesting concept and details but not unified in any way.

The final: just add more stuff!



state 1: collage, ink, litho crayon
state 2: red added to pink bird, wash added to backgroiund
state 3: an attempt to warm up and mute the red coloring
Final: local color added, more collage, fish.
