Woman in Half Light

Drawn Thursday  morning, from life, at AVAA in Austin..

Pastel over ink on sanded paper, about 9" x 12".

As much fun as the iPad is, I am delighted to be drawing on paper again:  I like the bigger size, the bigger arm and body movements involved in producing the art, as well as the tactile experience.

Suburbia Update:

Two fawns graze in our backyard.

Breakfast at the Hotel Hammer 3, 2, 1 (iPad sketches)

This month, I spent several days in Mainz, Germany, where my husband was teaching a short course at the university.

After the first couple of mornings, I used the morning breakfast time as my "sketching from life" opportunity.

Each morning I set myself up in a corner, so no one could see what I was doing on the iPad.

These sketches are in reverse order: the first at the bottom, the last at the top.

By the way, should you be going to Mainz, the Hammer is a good place to stay:  nice rooms, breakfast and staff, right across from the train station and easy walking to the old town.

On the Fast Train From Brussels to Paris (iPad Sketch)

Drawn from life a couple of days ago, when this part of the world was having a heat wave.

I am just back from a few weeks in Europe. 

Several train rides and some plane rides were involved. (Superb, if a bit bumpy at times for iPad use.)
