Naughty Friday Naked Tart



Bones. Drawing is the bones of an art work. Even Pollack's work. I have had the great good fortune of seeing the sketchbooks and drawings of several masters and to a one, they can draw. Want to see me drool? Besides at Main Street Bakery, I mean. Show me an exquisite drawing. Good drawing in a piece of art is like Grace Kelley's cheekbones. Everything else is show, elaboration, improvisation and movement. And good art, like Grace Kelly, has good bones with which to move us along. Fluid well tuned lines. A dynamic articulation. Arrestingly beautiful forms...next time you look at a lot of art, see if you can pick out the Grace Kellys in the room.

Very interesting sketch, turns my imagination on, trying to figure out how you'll continue.
The Albertina Museum in Vienna has not only drawings by the likes of Albrecht Dürer, but sketches by artist's like Picasso, which make for compelling viewing.

Merisi,
I have to come to Vienna. Drawings, good ones, always renew my passion for what I do. The Albertina Museum must be a treasure trove. Now on my list of must sees. JC
