Wonderment...365 Days of Drawing

What a difference a day makes! I put paint on the little boy, an earlier drawing from the challenge, at the start of my day, and then did this drawing of the man late at night when I was tired, and just wanted to get 'in and out' as fast as I could to meet the challenge of drawing for half an hour every day. My tools were failing, charcoal too soft, and I couldn't find anywhere to sit in the middle of a home re-model. Note to self,,,draw only in studio for now.

The charcoal will be erased. The painting will not. I wonder if there is use in drawing when you are tired. Is one learning anything? What do you think?

Thanks Susan. This painting inspired a fellow artist Rich Brimer to include it in a speech yesterday. Wonderment in art/life kinda thing.
