I was out at Parsons Beach yesterday working on my marsh series...when I heard a voice near my elbow ask. "Do you always draw before you paint?"
When I looked up there was a thoughtful boy wrapped in a big red towel. He'd noticed me sketching...A good habit I've gotten into that helps me see the subject matter better and helps me make choices...
Willy draws all the time. He especially like whales and the ocean.
He said he can draw but painting isn't so easy...now isn't that something the rest of us can relate to?
I told him if he keeps at it by the time he's 17 he'll be really good!
