I painted this over an old painting today. woo hoo...it was fun!
Later in the day I sketched from the fat Sargent book in the front room. What lovely compositions Sargent employed! One right after another. (I'll add this to my Sargent project).
After that surgery business my doctors advised me that it is important to walk every day...(even if you don't feel like it). I packed my sketch kit and set out to walk to Rain or Shine Coffehouse on Division. It's an easy walk..flat all the way.
The paparazzi was there! No..No, paparazzi, please, please....no pictures! (haha)
After getting to my destination and drinking coffee... I did this contour drawing in my small sketchbook of the paparazzi. (Contour drawing is looking at the subject instead of the paper...) When I looked back at the paper I saw that I made his camera lens into a cinnamon bun. Very fitting! it was a sweeeeet outing.
How's your weekend so far?
