From an intoxicating afternoon wallowing in facsimiles of artists sketchbooks in the RISD Library’s Special Collections department. I had to work to pull myself together in order to move the pencil around on the page. These after Whayne Thiebaud‘s thumbnails.
Little bit of snow around the edges.
Demo sketches made while thinking through a student’s photo reference in our watercolor faces and figures class.
Sitting in bed next to my son as we read our books I thought to myself something along the lines of “I don’t have time to draw anything” but also “even a few minutes would be worth while”.
Then I noticed that there was a pencil in my hand (I like to write in my books) and space on the book mark. (Incidentally, the stuffed Corgi appears larger than it is in life.)
Sketch it quick (cold fingers!), paint it later: cove in the afternoon, Jamestown RI.
In a lightweight sketchbook this one is a Fabriano, 40 sheet staple bound, flat so it fits in pockets.
