I have spent most of this past week updating other blogs and not mine. So I am working on a system to keep current with my blog. Maybe it is weekly. At least I will give it a try.
No week is complete without a trip to Starbucks.
These gentlemen were sitting approximately three feet in front of me in Starbucks. I sketched and painted the man with the beige hat first and then added the second person. They were discussing technical details sharing what looked like wiring diagrams.
I missed going to Life Drawing last week but sat in front of a yoga video to capture figures.
I started a new sketchbook. This is a Stillman & Birn Alpha sketchbook, landscape 6 x 9 inches. This is the same size I will be taking on my trip to Australia. I wanted to adjust to the size and paper before the trip. I will start a new sketchbook for the trip. Those colors at the top of the page are new from Daniel Smith.
We are still not an official Urban Sketcher Chapter although we have been advised to use the name – Urban Sketchers Port Townsend. We should know by mid March. Yes, landscapes, a subject I need to work on. The first was sketched from the car while I waited for my friend to arrive before taking off to the Old Alcohol Plant for a sketch outing. The second is the view from the restaurant at the Old Alcohol Plant. Yes it is still too cold to sketch outside.
Finally I did a selfie of myself looking in the mirror while I watched Code Black on my computer. So serious but I needed to update my profile photo on Facebook. I would say the look on my face reflects how I feel after visiting Facebook these days.
