Ocean Avenue in Brooklyn. I used J.Herbin ink and few drops of blue watercolor. And listened to “Sunday Driver” songs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCfbWrQkf6c
Looking at Verrazano bridge through the trees. I pass that place hundred times and often stare at this beauty against the sky, and it seems that wind plays music on its strings like on gigantic harp.
Verrazano connects Brooklyn and Staten Island, where we have to take another bridge North through Goethals and South through Outerbridge, it is our way to New Jersey, unless we want to go through Manhattan and take George Washington bridge. To cross Verrazano going North cost $13 bucks.
I used ink and bits of watercolor from my tiny Bijou box.
Visiting with some old friends at a cabin in Northern Michigan, I found myself with a little time to just relax and draw what was around me. One of the subjects that presented itself was a birdhouse (in truth, a squirrel house) hung on a tall, thin pine tree near the window.
A close friend is expecting with her second pregnancy. She waited until seventeen weeks to share the news because her first pregnancy ended in miscarriage last year. I did this sketch as a bit of a celebration for her from her seventeen-week picture (she’s been taking a picture each week to document the pregnancy as it goes along).
Tired. Sketching on NY Subway. Blackwing 602. The way his boots were turned inwards, his interlocked fingers, all his slouchy, a bit cartoony figure – all was the essence of tiredness and exhaustion. Brought to mind Van Gogh’s workers, I felt bad for him and wished him well and better life.
