Pointing Fingers



Pointing Fingers

The right hand’s initial reaction
to most things dropped or ignored,
blaming the left hand
for drawing this out.


Of course my progressive liberal left hand had to do the sketches.

Isolated




Isolated

“E” modeled for the session I attended with the Independent Painter’s this morning.
She had a great costume, though I have never heard of who she was pretending to be. Everyone I was painting with seemed to know.
Sketching “E” again was enough for me.
I was told by others in the know she was playing the part of Anna Valerious from the Van Helsing movie.
Of course I knew nothing about the movie either.

Darker Innocence



Darker Innocence

Not sure why I like this.
Maybe the struggle
to cover initial flaws?
Maybe the darkness
in overworked shadows
hiding what I saw? 


A sketch a pose “D” often provides as part of her routine. From a session with her, not too long ago.

9”x 12” ink, sanguine and chalk on colored paper

Slept for Me




Slept for Me


“BA” slept for me yesterday.
Well, she slept for a few others too.  
Slept long enough for me to sketch her from these two vantage points in the studio.

Both: 18”x 12” ink, sanguine and chalk on craft paper

In A Chair



In A Chair


Yesterday I enjoyed sketching “RO” just sitting in a chair. It’s been well over a year since I sketched her last.
