Seagull Sketch

signed seagull with orange feetAfter the aforementioned trip to the SAM to see Picasso we went for lunch downtown on the wharf. Still a bit stunned from my reaction to Picasso’s art work I kept sketching but now it was the gulls outside the restaurant window.

Originally a pencil sketch the colour was added later to spruce him up a bit.

Women Running Sketch

sketch book Picasso women running line onlyIn 2010-11 the Seattle Art Museum hosted a show called “Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musée National Picasso, Paris”. I was not a fan of Picasso until I saw the show. I was completely enthralled and in the end I came out weeping. His work was so powerful and I was taken with how his images spoke to the human condition in an unflinching way. The power of his art to touch the heart and mind can’t be understated.

This sketch was one I drew when looking at his “Two Women Running on the Beach’ from 1922. This fall has been a time of making new friendships with women and strengthening other ones so it seems no accident that I’m drawn to spend time with this sketch at this season of my life.
