soggy sketching



January 9, 2011. Pouring rain. Slushy snow. Sopping wet clothes. Terrible conditions for skiing and snowboarding. Yet the slopes were full of hearty adventurers, including my two kids. We gave them the afternoon to snowboard all they wanted, while my wife wrote thank-you notes and I sketched as many people as I could around me. It was a great vacation, and now it's back to work tomorrow!

Great to see your hand in motion again.

Are you wearing an LB tshirt?

Rob Carey said...

Yeah, what better shirt to wear when there's no sun?

Cool! It's like Skyping with you only I can sit here in morning hair and PJs;). Keep it up, little windows into your day...love it!

Great sketching and what a great way to spend your last day of freedom. What were you listening to on your ipod?

PS The sketchbook has arrived!

At the time of this sketch I was listening to Itzhak Perlman playing the violin- "Introduction & Rondo Capriccioso for Violin and Orchestra Op. 28" - I love that piece.

Great film. The master at work.

Have you posted any films, Rene? It would be a good thing to see. These are made with just a regular camera on video setting.
