I did a lot of art this week,
As khiemtran likes to say...
I've bought a new sketchbook, one dedicated to scribbledy sketches. I want to get looser and less uptight about sketching, well, sketches. So I can only use a pen in this book: no do-overs, nothing is considered a mistake. I'm just learning to coordinate my eye and hand better while gaining confidence to be spontaneous. To that effect I'm really trying to keep my eyes on my subject and not my paper and pen
For now, I've only sketched things from my balcony of a morning, hence some odd-seeming (ok, it doesn't just seem odd, it IS odd) perspective. And one really has to be quick! It's an ever-changing scene down there.
So, behold: Scribbles.
The little "scene" at the top left is the newspaper seller who spreads his papers on the curb every morning. And on the right is the public transportation of choice for Egyptians: the mini bus. Don't get me started on mini bus drivers. No, really. Don't. That'll be a post for another day.
