Doodles for May 29 – The Siren Song of Unreason

Good evening my friends. You must forgive me for my lack of attention to the blog machine as of late, for I have been negligent. But enough!

I’ve been doing more gesture drawings lately. It is challenging and new. Sure, for beautiful final products we can spend as much time as we want. But life doesn’t stand still, which makes it that much harder to capture. To do it well requires a well-trained eye and mind, so I’ve been attempting to train my own.

Of course I have the luxury of hiding the poorer ones from you. Here’s a horrible one to balance it all out.

Mm hmm. I’ll say though, the pool is a good place for such exercises. If you can avoid getting burnt, which I failed to do.

I’ll exit with a relapse.

    I like the lady. And the old guy in the black trunks who always asks me what time it is when he sees me at the pool. I can totally tell thats who it is from the gesture, because of the big round circle you used for his middle area!

    Yup, that is most certainly him.
