"Autumn Leaves" Coloured pencil on black paper.

Having got diverted from the work in progress I have been showing on the blog, I have struggled to find something to post. I restarted my art classes in the last couple of weeks and found I needed to have a real tidy up in the studio as it was getting impossible to move. It's amazing what you find! This is a small work I did with coloured pencils some time in the last two years, which disappeared in the morass of unfinished work. I also found several other pieces, mostly unfinished which I must make a real effort to finish.
Are other artists like this or are they all disciplined and finish what they start before moving on to something else? I seem to be constantly moving from one work to another, finishing some , while losing others until sometimes months later they turn up.

  1. I'm the same Phil, as I often change direction, resulting in unfinished work. It doesn't worry me. I don't want to be forced to do a particular drawing when my enthusiasm is waning.
    I quite enjoy 'finding' unfinished work from time to time and then completing them.
    It's all to do with maintaining motivation, and that's not an easy task!
