My farmersPosted: June 26, 2012
Today is one of those days when I struggled with a painting and I had to trash it and do something new. I had the bright idea that I would sketch the farmers who were distributing my weekly basket of CSA vegetables. I love those lively “people in action” sketches. Also a disaster. I really don’t know how artists sketch people at events. I’m hoping that someone at the Urban Sketchers Symposium will reveal the secrets of that skill to me in Santo Domingo. Last resort — sketch the vegetables in the basket that I received from the farmers who I couldn’t sketch.
