My sketches this week were crammed into the little bits of free time I had when I wasn’t practicing, rehearsing or performing in New Jersey for a concert with the Arco Ensemble. To be honest, I was beginning to think that maybe I was losing my love for drawing. However, when I got home last night after the concert and breathed a sigh of relief (both that the concert had gone well and that I had survived the commutes) I promptly sat down at my drafting table and starting working on new fashionista drawings.
This first sketch was a quickie; you’ll also be able to make out the outline of another sketch (not as successful) of the concertmaster of the Arco Ensemble.
On my way to meet my carpool yesterday morning, I sketched this figure in the subway.
Finally, I like this sketch the best. It was inspired by one of the models in the spring Boden catalog (my bedtime winding-down “reading” a few nights ago.)
Commuting to Jersey! I remember it well. Glad you didn’t have to take the bus. Looking forward to the new fashionista drawings!
My “driver” for this gig (one of the violinists) was great, but a bit more on the dare-devil side than I like. I jokingly told him if music doesn’t work out, he can always take on a career as a cab driver. But to be honest, a few times I found myself “sucking in” as if that would keep us from getting scraped by other cars as we straddled lanes.
My fashionistas are definitely undergoing some transformations as I work towards drawing them in ink. The ones from the past two days actually need a little surgery (limbs are doing odd things), so I haven’t quite hit my stride…but I’m getting there!
