It’s a small clock tower, but I like how it looks lit up with neon at night. I did a quick pencil sketch, made a few colour and other notes, and applied coloured pencil at home.
I really enjoyed this episode of Art Juice—partly because I’m strongly drawn to abstracted landscapes at the moment, but also because Lewis is so warm and down to earth.
Louise also asks some great questions, and the conversation between them flows naturally. (Some podcast interviews are quite awkward.) Art Juice is fast becoming one of my favourite podcasts.
On a related note, I remembered I’d previously posted a video from Lewis on mark-making.
Phenomenal piece of street art in Avondale.
This was meant to be our Toyota Ipsum, so the perspective and proportions are quite out of whack, but it was a fun quick sketch.
I find that, for certain subjects, if I use too small a piece of paper (this was A4), and I start too big, I end up squashing things up. Probably should have done this on A3.
I love this mural at the Green Bay shops. (The above photo is only part of it; you can see the whole mural on the Resene site.) Every time I stand and look at it, I relax, because I feel like I’m looking at a real sea scene. Clever how the phone box in front of it is painted too.
