People Sketching Practice

Sunday morning at Panera

Panera Bread on a Sunday morning is a great place to get some practice sketching random people. I am going to go to various public places and capture a collection people. The object is to not only to get better at portraying their gestures or moods, but to tell a story. The above sketch is only one paragraph of the story I aim to tell. A collection of paragraphic sketches will hopefully start to form a story.

Painting from a Live Model

I’ve started painting from live models on Thursdays. This week’s model looks beautifully exotic! She will be coming back next week for a second sitting, giving me the opportunity to finish it up. I don’t know if I’ll make the time to work on the painting at my home studio before then. I like where it is going.

See LOVE at the Anton Art Center’s Green Show

I am happy to report that my oil painting of my cousins has been accepted into the Anton Art Center’s Show. The show will kick off with it’s opening Saturday, January 18, 2020 at 2:00 pm.
