Waiting for the bus

How amazing is this? While I was sketching in my car today I was listening to a radio interview with a sketcher. On CBC’s The Current, Anna Maria Tremonti was interviewing Janet Hamlin, an artist who has been sketching the U.S. Military Commissions at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba since 2006. It’s a fascinating interview and if you like her sketches, there’s a book of her work coming out in October called Sketching Guantanamo: Court Sketches of the Military Tribunals that promises to be a compelling read.

    Wow! That is one dreamy yellow!

  2. Yellow house or blast of sunlight?

    Great little sketch… I love the shadows drifting across the road. And I too like the yellow wall, but what really caught my attention is the shadow (is that of a person?) of someone/something not in the painting… makes me want to go inside the painting and look around the corner of the house in the middle… or makes you thank that something is about to appear.
    But, what is the significance of “waiting for the bus”?

    Since a number of people have commented on your lovely yellow Shari, think i’d call it
    Benjamin Moore’s mellow yellow 🙂 what colour did you use?

    Is that the push-pull warm-cool thing that’s happening with the yellow and blue? (I’ve been studying that book you recommended “Making Colors Sing”. Very powerful. I never tire of these lovely town views.
