Color Play


Playing with color in my sketches.  I have mixed feelings about using color.  I like basic pen sketches a lot, but you get so much more subtlety with color, or by using a pencil. The sheen of the metallic blue tumbler in the upper left is so much more subtle than in the drawing of the Ganesha statuette two panels below it, which I didn’t think I was going to use color on.

These are really tiny drawings in a 5×7 sketchpad. I like the constrictions of these small places. While these are mostly objects in my home, these little drawings are fun to do while out and about.


Full page drawing of a little wine stopper I bought at a yard sale a few years ago. The original is more charming.  Should have relied on the colored pencils more!


I walked around the Pomona College campus a couple of weeks ago before a Harmonistas concert.  Then sat in a little park next to this house and thought I’d try something different. I would love to see the inside of this house.  All those windows, the dormer and the big front porch make me think I would love to live here.
