Long traffic light, interesting church. I opened the glove compartment box to find a ball point pen and this little book that Katy gave me to keep there. Satisfying to have because it seems for the past two weeks on vacation that I do find moments to sketch but nothing to sketch with, and when I have materials I do not have any time. Thanks Katy!
Sketches of Cafe Pearl and looking out onto Waterman St. from the RISD Museum.
Tonight is Third Thursday at the RISD Museum. This month’s session of Hands On Art will focus on drawing.
Observatory sketch, watercolor class demo.
We began by finding the proportions of the structure (green box) and a plumb line (blue). From there we found curves that described the form from our perspective (red). We built an armature with that information and fit the details onto it.
Above I have desaturated the image and increased the contrast to show the value structure underlying the color.
During a lovely dinner at Julians in Providence.
Sketch it first paint it later from a ride to Boston from Providence. So nice to be a passenger
Demos sketches from our class at Providence Place mall.
WaterFire, Providence, RI, I was struck by how peaceful it was, when I walked through there was cello music being piped along the river. Sketched it this morning, in the tiny sketchbook, it is a version of “sketch it first, paint it later” except this time it was “think it first, paint it later”.
Little bit of snow around the edges.
