St. Croix Drawing progress 1

 This post shows the start of drawing on the canvas for the St. Croix painting project.  At this stage it starts to feel real.  Its fun to be working on a large canvas again.  The physical relationship is different because I'm not hunched over a small work.  I move and gesture largely, the project envelopes my vision and seeing the whole thing means walking across the room.  One of my former painting professors compared painting to fencing another saw it as a dance.
