Bridges Revisited - it's a mindset - K.I.S.S.
O.K. so I went to Scribble talk and got a reference photo from their image library then after seeing Tracey Latorelli's lovely pastel sketches I decided that I would do the bridge in pastel -
But then it happened ... I got out a LOT of pastels --several sets of pencils, Nupastels, Yarkas, Unison's, Rembrandts I cut a sheet of wallis into little 4X6 pieces perfect for my little sketch and proceeded to spend hours overworking and not SKETCHING (see overworked lower bridge ^ above)
So I quit and went to my computer and ordered Danny's books read some more posts - and finally went back to my studio -- telling myself to K.I.S.S. (keep it simple stupid !!!) and put all pastels away except for one small set of pencils and spent 15 minutes making the sketch on top -- And I am pleased because it is a sketch - This was a big step for me -
