Apropos of Nothing

© Ellen Blonder
I didn't paint today, but I did go through a lot of old files, and I came across this silly sketch. 
I'm combing through years' worth of files of old work, and I've been a bit unsettled by how much work I did that I forgot about completely. I also couldn't help but see how much more we all rely on the computer for presentations, rather than slow, detailed pencil sketches. Computer-based art is slicker and more accurate, but I wonder if something's lost, too, from skipping the painstaking drawing.

  1. All the shading...feeling the light...knowing the values...mustn't lose that.
