Spent a casual Sunday afternoon doing some urban sketching. We met in Inglewood chatting over coffee with sketchbook and portable watercolour sets in hand.
It was hot and sunny and a welcome luxury. Some randomness is a breath of fresh air. This image is one of the drawings I did that day. Inglewood is such a beautiful area and one of the oldest in the city.
Art is not my hobby, it’s how I earn my living.
New creations are appearing, in between the business obligations. Professional artists need to be hardworking and it is passion that drives us. Patrons are so appreciated. I see everything I do as art. Besides creativity there is a whole bunch of business, planning, submissions & getting out there. I recognize that in putting myself out there I am vulnerable & vulnerability is a virtue. I go almost non-stop to try to get everything in. Hence the luxury of a sketching afternoon.
Here is a video I made and composed the soundtrack to. If you like rain, I think you will like this. I listen to a lot of background music, meditations and ambient while I am working. Sometimes there is no need for words. Enjoy.
I don’t have high end recording facilities, but you get the idea. This was done on the minimal requirements for recording. Having it documented is the main thing until I am able to make a more refined version.
I am taking registrations for fall piano & guitar lessons. If you are interested please visit my Music Lessons page.
