See You in 1 or 2 Months, Later

Hi, Friends, how have you been?The project gets me very busy. I'll concentrate on the project at least for 1 or 2 months. So, I'll take a "break" for this blog.Your comments have encouraged me so much. Thank you for wonderful support and great understandings.

This week, I upload one sketch.
For a coffee break, I go to a pub or else where to sketch people.
This old man already tipsy looked very sad, which caught my heart. I always imagine a model's life. All alone, he silently sipped 4 or 5 beers in front of me. The man hardly turned the red face to me, but knew my sketching. It was his kindness to stay there for me. When I finished the skeching, I smiled at him. The man gently looked at me and silently left the pub. Certainly, we communicated each other with the watercolour painting. I was happy...
I add the technical info on this work(A4).
1) First, wash, raw sienna.
2) Second, paint the guy
His face expression and the mood are my goal.
Crayons are used for the shirt.
Very limited pallet, as you know.
3) Check the whole balance in value and colour
Try not to overwork.
The raining and the humidity made interesting washes in the work.

In addition, my picture book illustration teacher and the mentor told me the same phrase, "Art, universal language!" Yes, indeed. Anyone can understand drawing, from a baby to a 100yrs old man. Further, the lecturer told us, "
We can put any message. I believe children picture books can change the world! " Of course, the lecturer wanted to talk of love and peace for the world. I believe so, too.Actually through blogging, I could have met so many nice people from all over the world. Even though I do not upload a post, I'd like to visit your blogs.
Friends, thank you for
warm cheers.
Certainly, I'll come back to this blog later!
I'd really appreciate your patience.

Till that day, happy painting!

  14. Hi Sadami! How wonderful your silent communication with this man. Through sketching you connected with each other and gave each other gifts - you a model and for him a companion for a while.

    As always, I appreciate your notes on your sketches and paintings. It helps me a lot to read how you work through a picture.

    Enjoy spending time concentrating on your big project. I think we are all excited for you!

    Yours,
    Nanina

  16. the man looks sad, as you described him...but I bet he was pleased that you thought he was a good subject (and he is!). It is sad to me when people drink alone---but he wasn't alone at all with you considering him and his posture and expression. I am glad you connected with him. It is a very good painting!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh he does look sad - you've captured that emotion very well, Sadami. Thanks for the working method info too. I think you're very brave to sketch strangers like that!

    We'll miss your lovely blog posts - hurry back! Hugs x

  36. Hi,Celeste,
    Thank you and your say is right. People around me secretly looking at the work said in a low voice, "Hey, that's nice!" and the man heard it and looked at my work. We know sketching is conneting others.
    Celeste, one day, let's have beer or wine together!
    Cheers,Sadami

  37. Dear Gillian,
    Thank you! But if we want to learn how to draw figures, only the way is to sketch others. In my experience, live models are the best. The quikcer, the better. Sure, sketching is connecting others which brings us friends!

    After finishing up this project, I'll come back and tell the story.
    Big Hugs, Sadami

  45. Hi Sadami,
    The sketch of the old man certainly tells alot. Just looking at him I imagined about his life: he used to be very energetic and had a good family, but time turned and he ended up along and apparently very lonely. But I see that after he left he went down the street and saw something very nice; or , maybe it was a thought about you painting him. It made him smile and think "No, not everything is sad in this World, maybe I should go to the library and see if this artist is online and blogging; so, I can read her blog :)"

    Cheers Sadami!
    Good Luck with the project. Being busy is a very good thing; being overwhelmed is something that we need to work with and eliminate by prioritizing :)

  46. Best of luck with your project, Sadami! I know it will be a success!!! You have left us with a melancholy painting - this old man, sad, lonely, thinking about something or someone lost so he drinks to ease the pain - or maybe he just lost a football bet? Who knows!! Anyway, we'll be here when you return.

  47. dear Sadami

  50. Dear Irina,
    Thank you for the great cheers that make me go forward.
    Regarding quick watercolour, like you said, imagination is critical to depict a contex, but also empathy. Otherwise, an artist dispestects a model's human dignity.
    Regarding the project, not easy, but very much fun. I will keep on.
    You,too, enjoy studying, family life, art activities and business.

    Best wishes,Sadami
