A Couple New Sketches

November 18, 2017

My friend, Jennifer, has a dance class in Austin, which offers me a good opportunity to sit and draw the performers. I made a few quick gesture drawings, and this sketch of a woman sitting and watching the others.

Afterwards, I shot a photo of Jennifer in the parking lot looking up at a bright sun, and turned that into a sketch when I got home.

New Sketches: Dripping Springs and San Marcos

November 11, 2017

I was driving around the area of Dripping Springs, TX a few days ago with my friend, Mary. At one place we stopped to do some sketching. She was drawing some cattle across the road, and I was sketching her. Later, she had to run some errands in the nearby town of San Marcos, so I drew up a street corner while I waited for her outside. All in all, a productive and enjoyable day.

Two Sketches From the Weekend

October 16, 2017

Here are a couple recent sketches I picked out from over the weekend. One of my friend, Pierre, enjoying a bottle of wine. The other is a quick sketch I made at the library. That one I didn’t have time to finish, but at least the library will still be there to go back to.

New Sketches: New Friends On the Bus

August 29, 2017

Recently a new bus service started into Austin from the town were I live, and the rides last week were free, so I took the opportunity to make some new friends along the way. These are pencil sketches of two students making their way into town, Belle and Suki.

Two Pencil Portrait Sketches

August 1, 2017

Here are a couple portrait sketches I made recently. I first was done at a meeting in Austin awhile back on the subject of immigration. While there, I shot some short video of the people who came, including this fellow, Kamal, who I made a quick sketch of on paper, and used the video later for reference to get the shading right.

Later that evening I stopped for some Chinese food, and sketched this guy who was sitting across the room. No video help on this one.

Sketches at Healthcare Rally in Austin

June 25, 2017

Last week there was a rally in Austin, TX on the Capital grounds about the US Healthcare bill. There was a large crowd of different sorts of people there. I shot a few minutes of video and photos of the crowd, and later made these two drawings from some of that imagery.
