Counterpoint to the last one, my left eye. Not quite as strong as the last one, but stillstronger than previous efforts.
With these new line drawings, I’m trying to get down exactly what I see. I know that drawingis an abstraction of reality, but where I could see eyelashes I drew them, where I couldn’t. That’swhat I mean by drawing only what I see. Working this way is giving my eye a finer resolution,that’s the only way I can describe it. I’m seeing things I haven’t seen before.
I tried with this eye to match the intensity of my line to what I saw. When the line got dark, Idrew dark. I think this is something I need to devote a lot more time to, which of course I’llbe doing now that I’m not using tone.
