blank canvas

While sitting in my studio chair facing a blank canvas on the easel, I made (today and yesterday) a couple of sketches.  Not of what might go on the canvas (I don't think) - but of the blank canvas and easel itself.

In today's sketch, you not only see what I drew, but also a bit of the scene that got caught in the photograph of the drawing.  Confusing?  Blank canvases usually are - until you get started.

today's sketch; graphite on newsprint; 24" x 18"

yesterday's sketch; graphite and conte on toned paper; 8" x 5.5"
