Ave I.

Sketched on Ave. I with watercolor while waiting. It was a little experiment. I tried to go from bigger wash to smaller strokes and keep tonal value.  Weird. Feel serious need to pull out real brushes.
Spent few minutes in the waiting room in the doc's office. I need to be more loose with pencil sketches.

For some reason your last couple of posts didn't jump your thumbnail up on my blog so I hadn't realized I missed a post or two! I hate when that happens. And I do thank you for answering my curiosity a couple of posts ago, Nikira. I think you are beautiful but I do worry about your sadness that seems always with you. Love the last couple of sketches and paintings you've done and wish I could do have as well with my clumsy efforts.

Thank you very much, CrimsonLeaves. :)
I thought, may be I said something offensive and you decide to ditch me.
You are right, about sadness, trying to be positive, see reality with hopeful eyes, but deep inside feeling of loss and fears not going away. Even I am really turned off by artworks with screams of despair and black fantasy, with deformed youth with bloody eyes. It is not the world we want our children to live in.
Efforts will bring you closer to desired results. Same for you, same for me. :)
