Abstract super fast renderings of my work view in each shop done in coffee with utensils (knife, fork, spoon, stirring rod), Rotring Isograph (0.35 or 0.20) and Prismacolor pencils in Stillman & Birn Zeta Series A5 Landscape sketchbook.
I am trying to get out of the house to work at least a half day at coffee shops. A change of perspective, keeping fresh. These are very rapid sketches done as soon as I sit down. After I lay down the coffee lines I let it air dry and then immediately start working. It’s a new ritual of sorts. Later in the evening I’ll ink and color the drawings. Colors are approximate representations of dominant color or feeling of each shop. They may not accurately reflect reality. I’m okay with that.Comments closed
