1) Sketch kids, buskers 2) Wash

This week, sketching movements is the topic. Always an A4 sketch book and Arche A4 pads are in my bag with a watercolour kit. These references are an artist's assets and treasures for studio work. 

In response to the good feedback on children, I put kids first! Oh, they are living angels.
This boy was in a dream...he's flying across a sky with a "ladybird's wings"! So cute. I'm sure any mother can hear her child/ren's voice how much far away from her and come and see us. 
  
The point of quick sketches is "practice" and "get ideas for studio work." My hand and eyes learn how to capture subjects and value. Then, I can rebuild it in a studio from memories and even from given photos. (*although I hardly use photos). 
It's not a big deal. Spending only a few minutes is enough and appropriate for a daily exercise. These little efforts will take you to miles ahead in the future. Friends, let us keep up!
I often enjoy sketching musicians playing instruments.

This guitarist played his "handmade" guitar! Oh, Friends, have a look of it closely. Hey, it's originally a can! 
Can a can make a guitar?! Yes, it can.  
Ah, thank goodness for technology. You can plug in any instrument to a speaker that can make big sounds. 
I focused on the guitar, the player's hands and omitted a rest (*Arche). 

This accordionist's long and elegant fingers caught my eyes. He mainly played French chanson. I chose the moment his pushing back the bellows, whistle playing keys (*sketch book). 

BTW, it's a great regret that society often undervalues buskers and artists who bring joy. Buskers welcome me, a sketcher who attracts people. Mutual benefitsʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ .


OK, wash! Tada~~! 
I played with paints, a comet. 
So, wish your wish. Hope all your dreams will come true!!
Have a wonderful week.
Friends, Happy Painting!! Thank you for cheers!

  9. Hola Sadami! Disculpa por llevar tiempo sin ponerte ningún comentario. He viajado a una ciudad del norte de España, Logroño donde participé en un Sketchcrawl. Luego he ido al lugar donde nací, el país vasco francés y al volver a casa he tenido que ir a Madrid por un tema grave familiar. Afortunadamente todo se ha resuelto bien.
    Esta semana he salido con el grupo y es ahora, domingo, que te comento tus trabajos. Son, como siempre, fantásticos. Eres una gran dibujante de escenas callejeras. Me gustan mucho.
    Y tu salud? Vas recuperando?
    Un fuerte abrazo.

      Hi, Joshemari,

      Sadami Hello! Sorry to take time without getting a comment. I've traveled to a city in northern Spain, Logroño where I participated in a sketchcrawl. Then I went to my birthplace, the French Basque country and back home I had to go to Madrid for a serious family issue. Fortunately everything has worked out well.
      This week I went out with the group and is now Sunday, which I mention your work. They are, as always, fantastic. You're a great artist of street scenes. I really like.
      And your health? You are recovering?
      A big hug.
