A few little sketches this week. The first two are from memory, which is something I’d like to get better at. I saw the little girl at the Olympia Farmer’s Market while Pinniped Music was setting up for our gig there and was struck by what a perfect storybook urchin she made. She could’ve walked onto the set of Oliver and been right at home. I half expected her to sell me matches. Calliope was the second subject-from-memory, because I wanted to catch the way her head turned 90 degrees in search of skritching.
The sketches from memory don’t stand up to the ones from life, but it’s a good skill to practice.
My other sketches this week were from life, with an emphasis on being quick and simple. My cats, Monkey and Calliope, make handy models. Cats and musicians tend to stay put for long periods, which makes them handy models.
