Trying new things





I've been working portrait approaches in my mind's eye to life-drawing-referral-guy, and decided to take one out for a walk at Another Of The Infinite Branches Of The Coffee Megapolis.

The colors look a bit weak, so please click for a larger view. It may be I haven't figured out how to best scan these yet.

I'm not certain what you're doing but I enjoyed these (and I have been popping in, but had to reinstall my OS over the past couple of days)

I loved them. You keep surprising me!

Thanks for visiting my blog yesterday. It is vitalizing to see your drawings and photographs which manifest so much creative energy. Funny coincidence . . . an old friend sent me some colored pencils as a holiday gift. What better encouragement from her, and from you, to go out and do some drawing. I am looking forward to exploring all the blogs you mentioned in "Where I wander."

Appreciated the December 26 posting about "the relationship/conversation between photography and drawing/painting." Do you know of the blog by Loren Webster, "In A Dark Time," where there is an ongoing conversation between photography and poetry?

great work, Lori... once somebody suggested me a job as a jury artist, but I was too shy for that... today I would accept that without hesitation... if you take experience drawing faces and postures from life can think about something like that!

Lori, I am posting some wall paintings in my personal Flickr, maybe you are interested to watch them... I put explanations in spanish and english, all my friends and family from Israel can read english, then hebrew is not there:

they are not art photos, I wanted only to show places.

Hey everyone -- thanks for the feedback and support!

Ref: Went and got myself some watercolor-colored pencils, wanting to see if I could keep a fresh, energy-vibrant approach to sketching while using color...auspicious beginnings, but more will need to be done.

Ernesto: Kewl! I like being surprising, in a good way!

AM: Welcome -- and we do have quite a motely crew here in the sidebar, I think you'll grin at the range of blog-friends who gather. Thanks tons for the tip about Loren -- will dig deeper, but looks very very interesting/resonant.

Frank: I will for sure go by your Flcikr site, and it seems like it would be fun to be a courtroom artist -- stressful fun, but fun!

Now, back to work...

Lovely sketches!!!Your cake is half gone!!!!!:-)Tastefull!! There's a photo of it in palavras-cruzadas!:-)

:-) I can understand my friend's worry. But I have a different view.To be a stranger is not necessarily a bad thing.In fact some of the people who helped me in these past two years hardly knew me and I hardly knew them too.That help was based in mutual trust.Before that some people I considered to know well caused me a great deal of trouble.There's this general distrust clima about persons we meet on the Internet.There's some reason on it but we can not be crazy about it. I had no reason not to trust your cake!!!!!!:-)But I was worried...I was worried that someone ate it on the way!!!

I honestly never thought of quick sketches like this in color pencil. Another great idea.
