Yes I’m still alive should anyone have wondered why I hadn’t posted for so long. I may have mentioned, I’ve always been a people watcher as long as I can remember. So it was a natural evolution to sketch people in their surroundings. Lately I’ve had more of an opportunity to draw people from life.
I only really began drawing people in their surroundings, not posing in a room full of people to draw or paint since graduating from Art Center College. I found I prefer it. Although I should say drawing from a posing model, clothed and unclothed, was a valuable ingredient in my education.
Since cafe sketching, I’ve had some interesting communication with people who were hyper aware. But mostly it’s an art of “taking a mental snapshot”, as was the case of the sketch of the intense gentleman above and the subject was none the wiser.
