what to do while you wait for your summer tires? why sketch the garbage can in the waiting room of course.
this was from a while back. me and another sketcher got invited to speak at a calligraphy group’s meeting and show them our sketchbooks. while we waited to speak we, naturally, sketched the people at the meeting!
some students working. i got a new water soluble ink from J. Herbin that is AWESOME! it’s “pearl noire” so when i hit it with water it gives beautiful gray shadows. effortless shading!
i really, really like the top one. they gentleman was a very interesting character. he had wrinkles and frown lines that told many stories. he looked very content with that cup of coffee. i was sad to see him go.
the middle sketch i added colors with some of my students watercolors—i was VERY limited on colors!
some very interesting people at a local establishment. i was being buried since ordered food, so i had to be quick and sneaky when sketching these folks. i really wanted to sketch the goofy hat guy more but he apparently knew everyone in the place and didn’t stop moving.
playing with my new ink during lunch and a meeting.
just a sketch that i forgot about. i was supposed to meet a friend out for coffee, and he didn’t show. so i sketched the unsuspecting patrons instead!
a bunch of sketchers met up at the Rochester Museum and Science Center for some indoor sketching. there were 11 of us and we started by camping out under the mastodon display. we eventually scattered to the “stuffed animal” exhibits and sketched away for about 4 hours! it was a nice way to spend the day out and about with my fellow artists.
just a logo idea.
