For once I feel I have something to add to this tribe....
This drawing could very easily have been crumpled up and recycled as so many of my very feeble warm up or experiment sketches. Well, I pursued for a little while longer, and believe to have saved one of my better sketches to date.
So, sometimes I believe we give up on meaningful phases of our progress too soon.
I struggled for about 2 hours before in the last 1 to 2 minutes capturing the essence of this drawing.
Do not give up!!!!
