Sometimes the unplanned stuff is the best. Early at school to pickup my kids today (that almost NEVER happens) and what do I see? Our local middle school Chamber Orchestra playing under the redwood trees.
I dug out a piece of taupe-colored, accordion-folded paper and sketched on it. Since I didn’t know how long they’d play (they ended up being around a good 15 minutes) I added things as I went along: Black ink in a brushpen went in first. Then some white gel pen. They hung around and played some more, out came a few colored pencils and a white wax crayon. Stuff I haven’t used in a long time. So much fun. Here are a couple of closeups from the image.
Wish I’d asked the teacher his name (he’s the conductor in the sketch). he was fantastic and animated and the kids obviously loved him.
