Dr Sketchy

Dr Sketchy model sessions are all over the US and we are lucky to have one in Kansas City. Last nights session was interesting, with a one woman Sword swallowing performance artist. Here are some shots from the session, with her permission. There is always an interesting crowd. Someone selected their favorite work, and I happened to be picked. I received a goodie bag with art supplies and a bag of Blimp fresh ground coffee. So that was a treat. The woman who hosts the session also prepares some VERY YUMMY food. I had veggie meatballs with rice and cabbage. $3 and worth every penny. She sold out of food or I may have been tempted for a second plate! I gave my painting to the model. I hope she liked it. #30x30directwatercolor2018

Today was marvelous. I painted with our June USKKC sketch crawl at the Jerry Smith Park. The KC Parks and Rec was having their ‘Party on the Prarie’ event, and it was a blast. BBQ was on the grills, 2 huge beautiful horses pulling a wagon, a display of wild birds, (and a snake), and over 20 painters participating in a Plein Air quick paint. Now the top of the Crown was a young man, Calvin Arsenia playing a HARP. SERIOUSLY I THOUGHT I DIED AND WAS IN HEAVEN! I’ll try to post part of a song, Hallelujah, one of my favorites. Check him out on YouTube.

Here’s my direct watercolor!
