Old Town So Far

I haven't posted a bar painting in a while but I'm getting back to them now the MFA is almost over. Still plenty to do but it's starting to come together.

Joe's Truck

I'm not done with LA yet but this was something I was able to do yesterday, it's je's truck in case the title didn't give it away. Joe is building Angie a screen printing studio in the basement of the house upstate. More on that later.

Santa Monica Pier

This car was on display, who could resist, not me.

With a far off look in her eyes, dreaming of veggie burgers, no doubt.

Santa Monica Pier

This was a 15 minute sketch at the end of a long day, it's possible to work hard yet yield nothing that satisfies but it's all process. I've come back from LA with a very strong idea about how to change my drawing approach for the better. Now it's just finding the time to put those ideas into action.

I'm back from LA and here is the first drawing. This should be me back on a daily role but the best laid plans of mice and men and all that. LA was a load of fun, 12 of us rented the two bedroom two bathroom house right on the beach front, this drawing is from the deck beneath the house. I will remember this trip first and foremost for the laughter which never stopped (unless decorum dictated otherwise).

I just noticed that the ribbon from the Moleskine is laying across the drawing, I'd rescan but then again red eye and all that, also it seems to be supporting the composition.

Here's The News

No drawing today because I'm off to LA until the 20th, I'll be drawing my brains out whilst I'm there but since I'm not taking a computer I won't be posting but once I'm back I should have a whole sketchbook to lay on you.

See you on the 20th.

Here is Becka again after another session, light blue for the shirt for now, still think about it though, I'll be painting a little more today.

Becka At Vazac's

This is the start of a painting I'm doing of Becka who oversees Drink and Draw. I've got a ways to go here, I'm not liking the red shirt but I started with it as blue. Much to reslove but I'm enjoying getting back into the paint.

Two days in a row, what a comeback, how can I possibly keep this up, stay tuned to find out. Thanks everyone for commenting yesterday.

I'm Back

I'm attempting a come back at least. I've been missing drawing for drawing sake but yesterday was "Drink and Draw" at Vazac's so I got the chance to whip out my sketch book again. I've been working on the bar book which has kept my occupied and I still haven't finished school yet despite having graduated. We'll see what happens but I feel ready to give it a go and I want to try and change things up a little (no idea how).
Here goes nothing.
