Lexington Market, Baltimore MD
Demolition began the last week of the most recent market building - the Lexington Market has been doing business on the site for just shy of 250 years.
A new building will go up, they say by mid 2021 - still named the Lexington Market. It will take a decade for the town to get used to the newness of it.
The real history is under the market anyway - elaborate tunnels, from before it was the Lexington, and enlarged over the years.
Study Special - Week 2
Bounding along a self guided path.
Ready - Fire - Aim
OK - 9 reference images I'm using for the study
1st week looked at an image and tried to sketch what I saw (9" x 12" pad) - 1 quick take each
https://mastodon.cc/media/pLWOmHSuOE-nabqMXFc I needed to work on just getting stuff into the sketch space.
so - Week 2, de-construct, use stick figures only - get all figures into the scene https://mastodon.cc/media/h-pOPACrRAoyCiSj6Rc
1 of 2.
Study Special - Day 11
A de-constructed sketch of the first study image, The Dancers.
week 1 was just putting pencil to paper and sketching away.
week 2, today's - well IDK, it's actually closer to the study image overall in layout, but still off on some of the proportions.
Anyway - just one tonight. https://mastodon.cc/media/6qOqXqRzYpaPoHBKnT4
Study Special - Day 10
pushing on - three more of the study images from the first week week using just stick figures, and again each sketch ended up with more of the original subjects from the study piece in the frame.. I guess that is a good thing.. https://mastodon.cc/media/nZn3A2dbGiyMZ2_DHWY
Study Special - Day 8/9
At the end of week one, a problem was incorrect proportions of the subjects, therefore big portions of the study image didn't get into the sketch..
Suggestion was this stemmed from not constructing the subjects in simple shapes first.. and after watching a couple of videos..
two of last weeks images, as simple shapes.. eight to go.. https://mastodon.cc/media/3j9LSrJPUATVAs3qJOc
Study Special - Week 1 (dancers)
Started as "I plan to study bodies in motion by sketching dancing and dancers for a week or so." and this is how that has gone so far.
Includes one day 7 sketch UR
hmm - one problem I had all week long is getting the sketch into the frame.. there was supposed to be hands and feet and whole people in those sketches - by I drew what I drew way to big..I'm tempted to run the same cycle anew, IDK yet.
Study Special - Day 4
1 dancer and 2 brothers
The dancer from a 7th Degas panting which rendered 16 poses sketched in 4 days.
A friend shared a photo of her grand kids taken today on the cell phone and an ok to sketch them, it's still arms and legs.. right.
That's it for today.
Study Special - Day 2
instead finishing yesterdays sketches, as planned, sat down this evening and instead sketched figures form 2 different Degas works. Most of the figures came out not so good *smile* (the arm length on the middle figure on the right is not human.. maybe instant karma for changing plans so capriciously, or likely the obvious.. I can't draw for diddly. It is what it is.
#DailySketchChallenge Study Special
Had a delightful read of the first two chapters from Lena Levin's ebook "The Art of Seeing".
I plan to study bodies in motion by sketching dancing and dancers for a week or so.
Started tonight with (partial) sketches of 2 Degas' Dancer Series paintings. Finishing these two is the first goal, then one more Degas, I think, and 2 from someone TBD. Five in week is an aggressive goal for me; me thinks ;)
four days behind with the #DailySketchChallenge
theme "The Storm"!
Friday night, mid night start and went for a sketch study of a painting by the same name - took only a few minutes before I realized I should start over.
what the heck though might as well put about the same time playing a web camera picture of the sketch pad inside of gimp.. a little color air brush and 'stuff'.. https://mastodon.cc/media/aen81Fdq7Usohr6Rmc4 https://mastodon.cc/media/muMEyd5iIo-fwsJml70
I say stuff, paint stuff, and then there is life..
