On the platform

Hadn’t made it to the old Palette & Chisel much this year so dropped in for proof that I should be working from the nude figure more regularly. Turned out some clunkers especially on the quick stuff. The model who I’ve drawn many times before was her usual steady subject but my focus was dulled by a self-consciousness.

The above are 10-25 minute poses, Pitt Pens and some white grease pencil on Strathmore tan toned paper.

Dome of Co capital

Went to Denver for work and nosed about the city for a few days. Standing a block away from  the capitol building with it’s refurbished gold dome, I grabbed a morning sketch before heading off to Meininger’s to put in several hours demonstrating at a terrific art store. Started by current owner Henry Meininger’s grandfather, the strore’s customers included Frederick Remington and Charles Russell. As I drew the golden dome that morning from my vantage spot by a bus stop on Broadway, I got to witness the comings and goings of a few of Denver’s street dealer’s in an open air exchange of the recently legalized herb.

Airport cabbie Capitol view

Got lazy and grabbed a cab ride with fellow artist, raconteur and long time amigo Franz Spohn from Denver International airport and rode into town with a clear panoramic view of the Rockies out the cabbies’ windshield. A couple nights later, went to an evening event at the Denver Museum of Art and took an hour to sit by a large window and cop a sketch of the capitol dome stretching above a wing of the museum.

Pan 1 Pan 2 Pan 3

Sorry for the low res but I thought this was a quick way to compare the panoramic views I try to get using a wide format Moleskine watercolor sketchbook with a relatively negligible gutter.
