Spent much of today at the MacLeod curling bonspiel which includes nonstop Scots music and dancing by local musicians and dancers from age 5 to 75. I decided to try my hand at quick sketches of some of them. When you haven’t drawn people in a while, your eye/hand gets rusty.
Indulged in an exotic orchid to brighten things up a bit. Painted in a long, narrow Handbook sketchbook. Thankfully, this forgiving paper allowed me to lift an attempt at a background colour. Needed to remind myself that negative (white) space is a good thing!
Nice light coming in the front window at the Quirky Carrot created some interesting shadows. But the sketch got muddy. Out of practice with the paints. At least I was having fun sketching with a dear friend at the time.
