Holding Pattern and more de Kooning

The drawing is from this morning. The weather was just as perfect as yesterday. I am working on one painting on canvas, and another in my head, so just a drawing to present today. I find that using a lead pencil, over which I use a couple carbon pencils, works nicely to suggest light. The carbon pencils sort of "spit" since they don't get along with the lead pencil.

I took a look at the de Kooning: a Retrospective catalog, and found another quote, which I had read previously but not in the biography:

One thing nice about space is that it keeps on going...

There will probably be others which I will find and produce here.
