Candlestick :: Chandelier

The process of drawing is, before all else, the process of putting the visual intelligence into action, the very mechanics of visual thought. Unlike painting and sculpture it is the process by which the artist makes clear to himself, and not to the spectator, what he is doing. It is a soliloquy before it becomes communication. (Michael Ayerton).

If you look closely, you will see that the paper has many erased lines as I started over the same painting about three times… then I gave up and switched to a drawing of this antique copper candlestick holder that is attached to the fireplace’s mantle.

Si vous regardez attentivement, vous verrez que le papier a un bon nombre de lignes effacées car j’ai recommencé le même tableau environ trois fois … j’ai laissé tomber et passé à un dessin de ce chandelier en cuivre antique attaché au manteau de la cheminée.
