Clover and Sport, sketch
9" x 12"
I originally created this sketch as an idea for the "Possessions" exhibit at the Attleboro Arts Museum. I liked the color and general gesture of the initial sketch but needed to go larger in order to incorporate the legs and the "Possession" (his stuffed dog, Sport). Seeing how that was the point of the painting, that needed to be the focus. Increasing the size of the paper to 10.25" x 13" helped but I still think it could use a little more breathing room, compositionally.
Next time I'm starting with a full sheet and cutting down once the painting is finished!
