phases of development

"A work of art goes through many phases of development, but in each phase it is always a work of art. (Therein lies the importance of sketches.) A work of art is finished, from the point of view of the artist, when feeling and perception have resulted in a spiritual synthesis." - Hans Hofmann

Over the weekend, I had a blast doing prep work for the fashion show. I was working on fashion illustrations of the six dresses. Tres Magnifique! While drawing, it seriously felt like a brain massage to draw again! I love that feeling...the whole world just drifts away and it's just you and your drawing. When I was in college my favorite days were in drawing class when we'd draw a still life with the lights off with lighting projected onto the objects. I could sit there for hours diligently working -focusing in on the micro details then pulling back at the macro view, then back at the micro again. Somehow working with your hands while making art helps you to quickly get back to this place in your mind. Overall I'm really having a blast working on all aspects for the fashion show. The devils in the detail!
