I had in mind to do two elderly ladies sitting on a park bench feeding the pigeons. It became instead two girls just hanging in the summertime.
It’s from my head not a photo for a change. I remember being a kid and just drawing all the time. It is more of a concerted effort trying to post every day. It’s also #worldwatercolormonth and I am proud to be a contributor (and proud of Doodlewash Charlie for making it happen).
This was the actual image I meant to post.
Here’s my basic setup these days. Nice and simple. I’m running out of paper.
A big pile of stuff I’ve done in the last few months. I need to stick it up on a wall and do a retrospective. Anyway, have a great day!
I came across a picture of Beethoven at age 13. It’s the earliest known image of him and I attempted to paint him. The music behind him is his piano sonata Op.14, No.2, which I studied and enjoy playing.
Beethoven was born in 1770 in Bonn-on-Rhine. His musical education began at age four, taught by his father. At eight he played the violin well; at eleven he played Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier. His career is well known. There’s a great app available of his magnificent Ninth Symphony, with four versions of it each with a different conductor. You can scroll and see the different instrument parts playing. It’s very cool. 20,000 people attended his funeral and I would have been one of them. I’m a fan!
Another one done by folding the paper and getting a reverse image. Have a great weekend and 4th of July!
