[the occasional] Dumb Sketch

Backing away from the daily sketching of 2015, to observe more slowly and acutely.

    it is just so great that you take on any subject, anytime. I think–and I’m sure others will agree–that it’s time to take the ‘dumb’ away from your heading and maybe substitute it with the word ‘one’ (or something like it).

      That’s very kind of you. “Dumb” has been my salvation, honestly, because it sets the bar so low.

    I agree with Lance. I’m amazed at the scenes you tackle. And color too? Did you add this at the time, or later? You’re brave, guy!

      No, waited until after then I colored it. There is a guy in Saint Paul, however, Ken Avidor, who is a professional sketch artist. I’ve seen him stand around at parties, engaged in conversation, with paints (tiny) and sketchbook in one hand, brush in the other. Painting while talking. Perfectly agreeable and engaged. And sketching/painting. That is amazing.

    I agree as well (and I think I’ve mentioned that the dumb doesn’t fit before). They do look eager. And I trust their attention (and yours) was rewarded!

      It was a good play. Mu Performing Arts, with an Asian-American take on old Willy Shakespeare. Parts were very funny.
