Everyday in May-1
I debated whether to participate in this challenge again this year. I sketch everyday, but last year in May uploaded each sketch instead of just posting a sketchbook page several times each week. It definitely was more time consuming and I had to force myself to remain free in my choice of subject each day instead of worrying about "a published piece." I finally decided that it might be good for me to again post each day's journal page - they certainly are reflective of a very eclectic art interest and maybe I can break through the "performance anxiety" a little more.
Yesterday I painted a sketch of a townhouse that I love. You can see it from one of the upper floor exhibit galleries on the north side of MoMA - and it is breathtakingly beautiful nestled among two rather plain and uninteresting buildings. I sketched it from the MoMA gallery window earlier this year in my daily Moleskine watercolor sketchbook and posted it with sketches from several museum visits. But I wanted to have a sketch in my NYC "travel" sketchbook as well. The first sketch was done "live" and very quickly. The second was done from several photos that I have.
