Remember that project? The one that started out with a really promising vision, and that you put all your honest effort in, only to get to the end and think, “Actually, I am not really sure that I like that.” I feel like that way about this drawing. It is another seaweed (another Fucus, to be precise) and it looked almost black when I found it on the beach. Looking more closely though, the way the light broke on its surface brought out all sorts of interesting colours.
I do like the left half of this drawing, but there is something that bugs me about the right. When I first finished it, the colours and composition felt slightly off, and having looked at it for a week, that feeling has persisted. It does look better in the scan, which really brings out the greens on the right. But for now, I am shelving this under ‘practice’.
