I missed the last 2 sessions and it always feels strange to get back in to the sketching on Saturday morning mode. The model did several gestures and then got into this pose for the 1 1/2 left of the session - nice light on his shoulder, hair and down the left side.
For a lovely scene of a green pond filled with green frogs, go over and visit Nina at: Nature Remains (see sidebar for her recent post on "green.")
I told her I had to share this quote of her's from the post: It is the spaces we do not conquer, that wear the truest shade."
That can apply to greenspace everywhere - or the lack of it as we manage, cultivate, move, change, and basically get rid of all "wild life" in our suburbs so we can have lawns like golf courses and our neighbors will let us know if we are allowing our shrubs to grow too freely.
It can also apply to painting. How many times have you wanted to conquer that particular painting - that blending of colors just so, that glazing that is perfection; when we should just let it do it's thing and enjoy it.
One of these days, I must meet Nina and walk with her on her property (if I get an invitation, of course). We don't live that far away!
Have a Colorful Day!
