working guy

In classical forum on Wet Canvas we were studying Emil Nolde. I tried to imitate his style here. I summarize his style as bright colors, large solid forms used to create image. I think I could use some more practice working in the large solid forms. This was a pleasant growing experience. Not to mention my enamorment with the subject.

daily sketch

inspired by this quote from Thomas Merton - Confessions of a Guilty Bystander

"where many machines are used ther can be a deadening of spirit and of sensibilit, a blunting of perception, a loss of awareness, a lowering of tone, a general fatigue and lassitude, a proneness to unrest and guilt which we might be less likely to suffer if we simply went out and worked with our hands in the woods or in the fields"

Bill Peet was a top cartoonist employed with Walt Disney. I love his loose style and obvious love for drawing and life. Here is a page from Pamela Camel and my study
