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.
Another house I started to sketch while waiting for my son to get out of school. Did a few pencil studies over a couple days, plus a couple in ink. Each time, got a better feel and understanding of the facade’s design. So much to learn by just paying close attention.
Went to my first live-model session. Started off with crayons on scratch copy paper. Then drew with colored pencils and pastels on construction paper. Finished up with pen & ink and watercolor. The model was great and stood zen still for three hours. The other artists were warm and kind, the light in the room so generous and gentle.
