A Late Night in the Studio, as Temperatures Continue to Drop

Late Night in the Man Cave

It flies in the face of sound judgment, but at 11:00 tonight I decided to put on a pot of coffee, while temperatures outdoors slid down to 35 degrees.  I finished my school responsibilities about fifteen minutes ago, and I really do not wish to retire to bed with this 28 x 22″ watercolor sheet lying blank on my drafting table, it just seems so wrong.

So . . . with my second cup of coffee half-drained, and Andrew Wyeth’s voice coming over the TV (listening to “The Real World of Andrew Wyeth”), I gaze at this composition, and wonder how to begin drawing it, and how exactly to block in the deep shadows.  Unlike my last large still life, I want this one to be a darkened composition, in hopes that I can find my way toward the Andrew Wyeth-style dim interiors that I love so much, and so far have not been able to accomplish.

Wish me luck, and thanks for reading.
