The rain and some mundane concerns really cut into my plein air time, and so slows down our friend’s progress. He’s only a little closer to the hills.

Moving toward the hills:

One of the nice things about this being a work blog and not a portfolio space is that I can still publish unsuccessful drawings; that is, work that doesn’t fit the intended project outlines, but that I like anyway. This detail is supposed to be the point that the wooden man is heading toward, but I got carried away with drawing the trees and so forth on my model hills. Nice style, but not what I wanted to work in.

Some little while ago, I made a set of prints detailing this figurine’s attempts to keep warm at night. Well, night has passed, and he’s off to get to … where ever he’s off to.
