My Pivot Paint Post

 Looking into the morning sun the buildings felt lost in the bright light and details were obscured in the shadows.

Conrad was busy drawing and seemed like a good subject for a fast sketch.

Sometimes the drawings that feel best are the quick ones that get tossed off in a moment without much thought or care.

A couple at the bar

We went for beers after the sketch.  I sat facing the bar.  A woman leaned over and shared a moment with her partner.  The pose lasted twenty seconds or less.

Jim Sketching

I turned to Jim who was doing a quick sketch.  He was wearing his worn-out Boston Red Sox hat and stared intently at me as I sketched him.

Waiting for the bus

As I waited for the bus I spotted a couple who were talking.  As I put pen to paper they hugged.  Again, a moment that was done in twenty seconds.

I must be a romantic.

  1. Mark you really captured the spirit of the portraits and figures. I like the emotion that comes through them. Nice!!
