Pencil Session - John, Lisa and Mary

Pencil Session – John, Lisa and Mary

“Learning to draw, before you paint, is like learning to walk before you run.”  (Don Getz)

This week John and Mary McDonald and I met in Canoa Ecuador for some R&R.  We pulled out paper and pencils and practiced shading and contour drawing before attempting to capture the essence of trees.  John and I were soon lost in our drawings while Mary grew bored (?) and confessed that she preferred painting.

We purchased a sheet of thick “Kraft” paper and retreated to a beach-side restaurant to create a new design that is part iguana and part gecko.  Mary quickly weaned into ‘design mode’ and enjoyed adding details.

Soon we will be sipping our morning coffee and bringing the design to life with paint!  Because we took a timeout to map the details, the painting process will go well!
