Happy New Years!

The coordinator of my life drawing session arrives to the studio on a cool motor-bike and awesome looking helmet. This was a quick sketch done during one of the a breaks. Next time, the motor-bike...

"Happy New Year's to everyone!"

My life drawing session ended a little early the other night, so I headed to CCA to wait for Olive's typography class to end. CCA has this dinky waiting area behind the front desk, where 4 Corbousier chairs face each other. Luckily, no one was sitting across from me.

I didn't think the colors would work since everyone already knows what a black leather Corbousier chair looks like, but I really had fun with this water color/brush pen sketch.

"Happy Holidays to everyone...everywhere!"

Bookstore doodles

Here's another doodle page during a visit to Border's Bookstore. I started with a few head sketches and just continued til' I found something I liked.

It started raining yesterday and parking has been horrible. The regular lot and valet spaces were filled. Customers were parking on the dirt areas and red zoned sidewalks. It was so bad I decided to risk parking in the back of the building. I just made sure I didn't block the loading dock for either of the stores.

Flute Master

Still exploring acrylics in my life drawing sessions, but I've been practicing some painting techniques from home as well. Trying to stay loose in my approach to the canvas because it's so easy to tense up and work too close to one area.

I did struggle with the flute placement while working with photo references....I probably ended up re-painting the flute and hands 3 times. But I think I'm happy with the end result. Still thinking of adding a more interesting background, but for now I will leave the painting as is.
