Sketching and Listening
Last Saturday I was returning from my drawing class and felt I wanted more. So when I stopped to take photos for Moscow Daily Photoblog (here) I realized I had to sketch this beautifully composed scene.
What I did not realize? That it was cold outdoors and that the architects of 18th century knew a lot about the decoration and details. So one hour later I was completely frozen and very disappointed by the number of small stuff appearing in every building))). And as I was moving from one part of the sketch to the other I used so many ... exclamations, but did not stop (crazy artists!). What can I say today? I did not get cold. And I am happy with the result.
My other sketch was done the same day, during the Concert of Russian group, which performs songs by Sri Chimnoy (wiki), and do it so very heartily. I embed Youtube, they are really nice musicians.
PS It looks like they need a decorator to improve the signboard..
PSS Drawing people is a huge problem for me. But I know how to draw a drum!
