I had a fun and challenging evening sketching tonight. I was invited to draw an Ensemble that played at the offices of the KC Symphony. This was their first year to participate in "First Fridays" in the artistic Cross Roads District. I had about 10 to 15 minutes to sketch during each musical set. It was hard to capture musicians in motion!! smile emoticon Thanks to Amy Winterscheidt and Jeff Barker for helping to make this happen for me!!
These are all 9"x12" on Bristol. I started with a mid-tone made from graphite powder, then used 4b and 8B pencils with a kneaded eraser for highlights.
Below is my set-up and two of the four musicians getting ready to play.
