Thank you. Teaching. The class was Drawing Fundamentals, now it’ s Art Fundamentals now that I’ve added painting to the curriculum.

Looks like a great place. If it was yours, would you continue the coat rental?🙂

That’s funny. If it were mine it’d take a moment to consider. The view is spectacular. My daughter asked me about the coat too.😀

Beautiful sketch, Allen. Does sketching a structure as opposed to a person present the same challenges?
That is my favorite Genesis song as well. I heard Phil Collins is planning to have a reunion tour with them. We’ll sea (pun intended).

Thanks, Michael. Essentially an illustrator would approach them the same. The only difference I can think of is when you draw people “cafe” style from life. You have to keep a “snapshot” in your mind to draw.

Genesis was fantastic when I saw them in concert at the Spectrum in the “80’s”. It’s always interesting to hear of reunion tours when you have fond memories going way back.
