A little while ago, my cousin visited me along the Central Coast. It was unusually cold while he was here. Nevertheless, we bundled up and explored some of the local countryside together. Here is a picture he took of me as we drove up Figueroa Mtn. Road.
Apparently I make some funny faces while I draw. Below are some recent things I did while out with my cousin.
This is the drawing I made when the above photograph was taken.
A painting I made while out with painter, friend, colleague, Nancy Yaki.
I have been working on quick value studies of late. Here is one of a recently ploughed field.
An unfinished study.
A cow study.
A few other cows…
An architectural drawing of Loy Dorms.
A quick wash of Loy.
A New Year’s resolution of mine was to use a paint brush everyday along with drawing. I have come to really appreciate the variety of brushes I have and the study of their applications. To learn what each brush can be used for is such an experimental process. The above sketch was used with a small flat brush.
