glorious weather

...for painting and sketching at battery park city.
mornings i'm still focusing on shadows. i sat
beneath a ginko and played with its shadows using
sketch and wash pencils, sumi ink and watercolor.

in the afternoon we had a new model, olivia whose
poses were satisfying and challenging. as always my
quick minute and two minute sketches are my favorites.

battery park city painting

four stages from sketch to 'finish'
of saturday's main rock painting

and an ink drawing and two smaller rock studies

obviously i use the rocks as, ahem, a jumping off point.
i think of this series as abstractions inspired by the rocks.
as larry the saturday instructor pointed out at one point
they often seem to morph into southwestern landscapes.

the sky was what
a lot of us think of as
september eleven blue:
clear and flawless, no clouds.
the humidity was nil,
it was wonderfully warm in the sun and
perfectly cool in the shade.
ideal, in short
for sketching at battery park city.

shadows and cecily...
