Memory Work

My preferred method of working for the last week or so, has been from these little 1 minute diagrams pictured here. It's been very pleasant working these out. The advantage of this method is the reliance on memory. All that is diagrammed is the shock of the impression created by 4 or 5 elements in combination....Coyote Hill in snow shown here....the little diagram for it is on the page.

You can see that the sketches have a bit of an 'abused' look....the paper is folded up and lives in my breast pocket. When I see something that I'll paint, a little sketch gets made. This particular page started during a staff meeting....bit of a doodle of a head there, and a few notes deemed important at the time.
