Artist of the Day- Eric Fischl (click on image to view individually)

One of the things I love about drawings is how you often get a glimpse of how the artist works…bits left behind by an eraser…places where something has been rubbed out and a smudge remains…often fingerprints too. In these drawings Fischl has used glassine…a thin mylar like paper that he has laid over a section of a drawing in order to change it…or drawn a bunch of figures and objects on the mylar and then arranged them…overlapping where needs be to create the composition he wants.
