Getting ready for Inktober to start by warming up with some ink drawings.
Not what I intended to paint this week, or how I wanted it to turn out; but I painted.
20 minute rooftop sketch. Life in NYC during the Pandemic. I may need to do this daily.
Comfort arrives in NYC.
Watercolor painting from a photo in a news article.
Made this for a friend who also loves NYC! It was fun and nerve-wracking to see it coming together as I painted. Overall, fairly happy with it. Maybe not quite illustrative enough? Good experimental piece as I sort out what to do with my picture book dummy.
Saturday evening, a friend was giving me a lift home in her car. As we waited on Park Ave to turn, a bushel of pink balloons with legs finished the crosswalk and turned the corner. My delight in the sight was marred only in realizing it was too fast and too difficult to snap a picture. So today, I warmed up by trying to paint it. Just for fun and from memory. Not happy with how it turned out, but I tried.
Sketch with a new pen sitting at a playground on the Hudson.
Travel prompts including multiple elements. About 20 minutes each. Not as successful as I would have liked, but meh.
