I did see him at that life drawing class, but he was busy working in the studio space above the session and decided not to come in and sketch.
Went to see his work when the model took a short break, and it made me think "what if Georges Braque were mashed up with Luis Jimenez and some cartoonists, and they decided to paint rodeo cowboys?"
But he has nothing posted online, so I need to ask if I could take a pic of one of his paintings.
In any case, I got crazy-brave and decided to try watercolor, in order to dig a bit deeper into color practice and to begin/restart my painting experience.
First, I roughed in the "bones" of the drawing using a light colored pencil on watercolor paper.
Then, sitting on the couch while Mur read and the cats hovered, I set down some marks and areas. The intense attentional focus left me reeling a bit -- for me, at least right now, there is no automaticity without a high degree of effort-filled attention.
More to come.
