This picture is from the same trip to Washington DC that we made in August 2021 to visit our son and family, and from the same gas station. I loved how the tires were arrayed along the wall.
By the time I drew this picture, my eyesight problems had worsened quite a bit and I had a great deal of difficulty in laying out the lines of the picture. The perspective is out of whack. Double vision in one eye and a wavery spot in the other combined to make the lines all go uphill to the right. I noticed that this was also happening with anything I wrote. I could not see well enough to get a sense of the overall picture, though I could manage smaller individual areas all right.
Well, we keep going no matter what, don’t we. Just because I can’t see what I am drawing, well, then, I should stop? Never!
Focus instead on what you can do and go from there. This picture is a perfect illustration of that idea.
As frustrating and upsetting as your vision problems must be, especially as an artist, perhaps you can find a way to embrace the results of those challenges as part of your artistic style. This can be your “wonky eye” period. I do, however, hope that you won’t be experience this condition for too much longer.
Proves you are a true artist.
I think there is always a way if I can adapt and adjust. And keep my pen moving across the paper!
I like your perspective. (K)
I like your perspective also, both the mental and the artistic.
Thank you. I am hoping that no matter what happens I will find a way to keep the drawings going.
Your sketches are always better than the original photo 🙂
Thank you. I think that drawing something allows me to emphasize certain things over others, which a photo does not do.
Fabulous, eye condition or not. Keep on keeping on!
Thank you. You know, I really like drawing cars and their accessories and environments. There are so many interesting details to look for and I guess I also think cars have personalities like people (we are a family who has named all its cars so you see where I am coming from!)
