Windbreak & Tractor

Windbreak & Tractor
Graphite in Moleskine
Casey Klahn

I don't often make these sketches that aren't "perfectly" composed or balanced. Even this cropped in area lacks good composition. Sometimes, I get caught up in the details, too.

This scene is outside of my mother-in-law's farm kitchen, and features her little orange Kubota tractor. I liked it because of the repetition of vertical trees, and anyway it's well committed to memory for some future painting. It helps to have some objects to add to a painting once in a while.

I think that you should make more of them. That is just my oppinion though. It's wonderful! WONDERFUL!
Picasso started out with more realistic things and then got into his childlike state. Painting, drawing not perfectly is freeing I think. :) WONDERFUL WORK CASEY!

Thanks, Angela. I appreciate it very, very much.

Since I am stuck at the computer for into the second week, now, with refurbishing/updating my packet, I may need the short breaks of sketching to ease the burden.
