We did do the nose. And the hat...BUT SHE IS A WITCH!!!



















You'd think that the first week of an artists two month hiatus would explode into a frenzy of painting and drawing.......but nooOOOoo. So far the first three days has been an annoying exercise in cleaning , reorganizing the studio, and throwing out crap loads of garbage I've been hanging on to for years! I really had a hard time beginning work surrounded by chaos. So in the meantime here's an old sketch that reappeared in the madness. It's a sketch for a painting I never started. In fact the halftone drawing is on my website http://www.markcovell.com/Concepts003.html but I always liked this sketch because it was drawn pretty fast and is full of movement and fluidity. Now I have to keep all the same movement in the final painting. Whenever I get to it that is.

Hey Mark,
Sweet artwork, reminds me of Brian Froud. I found your blog through Joseph, I'll be sure to link you up.

It really works well as a sketch. If you can translate that feeling of movement to a painting it would be quite an achievement!
