This set of studies was done over a few days. And even though I don’t have words for what I’m learning, I know I am. Most of all, perhaps, to do stuff I don’t always like doing, like little studies. Because I just want to jump in.
My friend Iva first mentioned Brian Eno is perfect to listen to in this time and then the New York Times said so too. So I played some of these pieces and doodled with nothing in mind really. And this is where I ended up.
Today I was out running an errand after a long, long time and I stopped by the roadside and did this sketch from my car. It felt strange to be out sketching a real urban scene, the kind I love: gritty, not pretty. I miss this sort of sketching so much.
