Playing In Another's World



Playing in Another’s World


Was going through Arnold Lowrey’s book: Painting With Acrylics. Ended up playing around, doing these quick sketches. Loosely copied some of the paintings in the book. Didn’t realize how much fun it can be, not having to think about subject, composition, or any of the “personal vision” stuff. Just copy. I obviously, recommend purchasing and at least reading the book.

Standing Alone



Standing Alone

Not sure why I feel the need
to post this one of him.
Maybe it’s what the ink
from a new brush pen
achieved.
Maybe it’s the passing of time.
Knowing “G” from this sort of
artificial distance we maintain.
Him always the model.
Me always one of many
drawing him. 
Both living in completely
different worlds
all these years.

Just one of many quick sketches of “G” from a session not so long ago.

Strange Seat: Second Week



Strange Seat: Second Week


Back again for the second week, yesterday. “B” posing in the same pose for the Independent Painters Group. She was back for those who hadn’t finish the painting they were doing of her last week. I sketched her again feeling too lazy to find another vantage point in the surprisingly crowded studio. And of course she ended up looking almost the same.
