Mark 11

So all the color experimentation, I feel was an interesting exercise w/ the basic painting program at work.
But I feel like it was getting to be too much of a "art objective" in itself. The point of these sketches from memory is for them to be just that, "sketches". I can get caught up in trying to "make it pretty art" when it's more about the daily exercise of the eyes, mind, and drawing what we saw as fast as possible. Not laboring over it to make it an artistic piece in and of itself.
So with that thought in mind prior to executing this color, as soon as I got back to my desk from capturing the mark in my mind's camera, I pulled a scrap piece of paper, a pencil and jotted down the figure. I swore once it was scanned in to just drop in the basic color elements for the sketch and move on as soon as possible.
