On Friday evening I manned the Art Shop during the First Friday Coffeehouse at the GALA Art Center. Three great singer-songwriters performed and I took a stab at drawing the performers.
On Saturday morning I manned the pick-up location for the County Conservation District seedling sale at the Red Apple Farms. During lulls in the activity I drew the sketch below.
Some of the best work I've done isn't hanging on a wall; it's sitting in a box in my closet that's full of my old sketch books. I fill up one or two books each year. Some of the sketches end up as a basis of a more formal work, but most don't. They’re more important to me as a pictorial diary and also as on-going training; learning to really see and to understand shape, light and color.
This blog is to share my sketches as well as my sketching experiences.
