Museum sketching with color added later

These began as demo sketches in the RISD Museums Center for Prints Drawings and Photographs. We began with simple shapes, in the lobby we spent a few minutes adding color.  Last night at my kitchen table I lingered over them and let the colors develop.

Demos from a quick-sketch workshop, part of a course on creativity, at Bryant University. It was exciting, miraculous, really, for me to see groups of business school students fill their sketchbook pages with color, using only what was at hand in an unadorned, institutional classroom.
