Small Canals

The 5x12 pencil drawing is one of two from this morning's walk'n draw. The above is a 5x7 pastel worked in a similar fashion to the earlier see-if-it-sticks pastels.

In the De Kooning biography, there's mention of the drawing "Self-Portrait with Imaginary Brother." I always thought De Kooning was the older brother, but the writers indicate that he is the younger brother. What they say makes sense, but I was surprised at how easy it is to make assumptions. But after looking at the drawing again, maybe De Kooning is both brothers. The biography is wonderful, by the way. More to come as I progress through the book.
