Back to the basics

In moments like this one, I feel some times that colors are way overrated. Every one wants to rush to them.. oils, pastels, watercolors… and the results are often flattering (depending if one has done his homework on color)…
but when I have a moment to return to simple pencil and graphite, I realize how invaluable drawing and pencil studies have been to develop my creative side…

when using color, I always feel the pressure of having the piece “balanced” for color tones and temperature on top of form and volumes of the subject…

On a pencil drawing, my mind is free to study the curves and subtle lines of the subject… to highlight volumes and smear the shades to really reach the emotional affinity that reflect the subject…
