Taking a break while pictures dry, I picked up the pen and ink. I need practice in portraiture, and there's so much to learn. (To
Korsakov. Well, no you
shouldn't. He looks like
a walrus in my version.
I feel especially embarrassed about Bernstein, he's a handsome man and I grew up on his wonderful music. OK, that's another do-over.
Last weekend was really cool. On Saturday there was an Artists Flea Market in Pleasanton. I also did some painting, it's a very picturesque town.
After church on Sunday a ran back to finish up and take a picture with the light "just right" (I forgot on Saturday). On the drive back I passed through Sunol, another painters dream, and decided to paint some more. There was a group of painters on the street! I parked nearby and painted a different scene.
For lunch I waddled across the street to pick up a sandwich and soda, passing near the group of painters. I thought I recognized one. Yep, I stopped and said a brief hello to Mark Monserrat! He was working with this group! They all had great pictures going too! He's an upper level instructor at San Francisco's Academy of Art University. I've been there(she bragged...as a model).
