Lotsa stuff around the house this month…
Went downtown SF this evening to do a little drawing of a live model — plus a few unsuspecting artists, too.
Mixed some paint and made a few dozen samples, trying to find the best ways to create hues of brown. Once the samples dried, I saw faces in each swatch, each with its own personality.
Stumbled upon Jenny Kroik’s work online and fell in love with the color, humor, and humanity in her urban portraits and countryside still lifes. Maybe if I sketch the artist herself, I can catch a bit of her spirit and mix it with my paint.
Stayed home tonight to sketch some drawings based on photos from Montevideo. Drew rapidamente in ink sin lapiz. Scared each time I started one, afraid I couldn’t do it. Did it anyway. Never quite what I expected, but always surprising in their own unique way.
Spent some time with my son up at the park in Diamond Heights, both of us with pencils and paper.
Now home in San Francisco, stopped by Ocean Beach before fetching my son from camp. Saw this woman relaxing on the strand, drew her sin ropa.
Just returned from a couple semanas in Montevideo, where I had a fabuloso time and managed to squeeze in a little sketching each dia. Here are some images that caught my ojo.
