|Cartoon in Progress,|
The rough sketch is the results of viewing in Wikiart.org keyword: Gleaners. Decades ago I did a study drawing from Millet's, The Gleaners, noting a study of, artist, and my initials and date. Doing studies is a learning tool. Always cite the original painting and that it is a study of. At the time I was planning a painting of harvesting.
How did my mind in 2017 go from gleaners to the figure on a cell phone? On my Once in a While I Do List is creating cartoons. My thoughts flow from 18th Century harvesting > every era must have an iconic figural pose > what is it for 2017? > aha > the sketch of face in a phone. Artwork from 160 years ago inspiring art today, and for always.
