In the Studio - Black and White Drawings

This morning, I was inspired to go back and look through some of my older black and white drawings after watching this amazing trailer for The Moon Bird by The Brothers McLeod... (via Drawn!)



I've always loved drawing, I think even more than the act of painting. Maybe it's because it comes more naturally to me. Painting is a bit more of a challenge; more of a commitment. When I draw, I feel like I can be as loose or tight as I want to be. I feel more in control.

So the question I have for myself is, how do I apply this in my current works on canvas? It will be an interesting journey!

What mediums do you feel most comfortable working with and how do you apply that to your current work?

I feel most comfortable using acrylic paint and 3D paste. I am a creature of habit. Love you work named "Haunted" !
