I don’t have much time today to work on this, but I did a little preparation.
I looked at the history of socks, there’s some interesting history around socks, sometimes those ideas give me a different perspective… but I wasn’t too enthused… I’m fighting a migraine so that’s probably why.
It was probably a good idea because I forgot I hadn’t finished the drawing above… I did it in Abruzzo Italy.
The travel paints help a little, I have good clear colors.
I experimented with the textures I would use, and how to draw the pattern. First I used pencil and then a little paint.
If I do it this way I will draw the socks on white fabric with black pigment ink and it will be sketchy, not perfectly drawn.
But I have another idea, this is just one… I just need to work on it.
