Open studio sketch

IMG_2325 (1)

Toward the end of the three-hour open studio, I turned to my fellow sketchers to work a bit on my deliberate goal of sketching groups of people in a setting.  I was struck by how uniform their look of attentive focus was as each drew their own drawing and I worked to capture this in my sketch. The message of similar focus is emphasized by the row of seated artists all working in a similar way.  I had each of these faces looking at the model and the other two artists looking at their drawings so that the viewers will sense the relationship between looking and drawing. I used markers, soluble pencil, and water colors to capture the expression and harmony of the group. I am still working to understand if I like the marker’s marks better than the watercolor.
