Postcards from the Edge

On my recent trip to Key West and France I bought these little watercolor postcards at a bookstore in Key west and put up a post on Instagram asking if anyone wanted one from my travels. About 20 people asked. This is a sampling of what I sent out.

Jessica and Annie

I've been drawing with pencil lately. I sketched Annie at our life drawing group on Wednesday night and Thursday I sketched Jessica from a photo I took while painting her portrait. I love the light on her face. There is a Picasso-like simplicity that is beneath the drawing that would be interesting and fun to explore. I like the difference in her eyes responding to the differences in shadow and light. The two portraits together are interesting. And it's weird to have Jess behind Annie. Creates another kind of tension...
