Third near 20th and Productivity
An 8x10 study drawing for the painting I'm working on now. It's a view of Third Avenue near 20th Street in Brooklyn. The drawing is done with pen, brush, ink, wash and pastel.
I just read a book titled The View from the Studio Door by Ted Orland. He writes that the most important thing for an artist is "productivity." "If you learn to live your life productively, your artwork will take care of itself...If you are productive, your creativity will take care of itself." I was happy to read this, since I am productive.
