Well, so much for sketchy Monday… as it’s almost midnight now! Thought I’d share a few sketches from my recent trip to New York City. The two at the end of this post were done on a rather turbulent plane, one with pen. I know… the crazy risks I take with art. 😉
I love all the stuff on top of the buildings in nyc. BTW, if you haven’t noticed, sometimes I like to add a filter to my sketchbook images….
One weekend in November, I was one of the lucky few who got to attend a Flora Bowley painting workshop here in Seattle. She is truly awesome. There is nothing I love more than having hours and hours of uninterrupted painting time, surrounded by creative, like-minded souls. And who better to lead you on an intuitive painting journey, than Flora?!
Both GIANT paintings that I worked on came to be, just by playing. I tried not to influence them by making plans too early on. Or over-thinking things. They were definitely shaped, however, by the overwhelming bliss of having a weekend to put being a mom on hold, and the knowledge that I was going to be visiting NYC for the first time ever, soon after my class. I recently finished up both of the paintings. What do you think?
