Sketching on the Fly, I love the energy of the line in my travel sketches. The sketches average 15-20 minutes. Finding time to sketch is a challenge, and when I do I force myself to just draw, find the line presented and discover as I go. Several of these sketches are done with pen... so no chance of erasing. The results are impresise and the whimsical lines tell an energetic story of ...time & place.
This stage prop is two large, stretched canvas boxes with plywood 'covers' hinged at the back (built by Donnie Lane). Scroll down to see the process. After three coats of primer, I worked the surface to imitate a 3D book.
