Harlem Meer, 09.24.12

By September 25, 2012Sketches

Had a hour or so of daylight after a midtown meeting.  Took the opportunity to push the ink wash work a bit forward.  I’ve been chatting a bit with Nathan Fowkes who has helped guide me to a better path.  I switched over to a thinner paper (stillman&birn alpha sketchbook) in order to try to pick the black off of the solids and create washes with a pen brush.  So, a couple of quick studies.  First, a different view of the island in the dying light.  Second, a view of the stone ledge on the point to the south of the lake… odd and dreamy.

 

 

Still wrestling with the dreadful mess of it all.

    I’m enjoying these studies and sketches – but the top one looks a bit like a salad I just ate… or maybe I’m just hungry still… Keep up the work and the commenting – it’s interesting to see.

  • ld, you are officially my first respondent on this “blog”. thanks for the support and snark. but i guess if i’m getting “salad” out of you then i’m at least in the ballpark. 🙂
