The other day I took a ride out to the Hamptons along the south shore of Long Island and went to Dune Road. From the parking lot of Ponquogue Beach I had a slightly raised view of the area. These were painted in my car. First I painted the dunes with a view going down Dune Road.
Then I turned the car around and faced the dunes. There were great shadows from all the dune fences.
I don't know if you've seen the drawing event/challenge that has been posted by Marc Taro Holmes and Liz Steele. It is called One Week 100 People, and the goal is to draw 100 people in one week, from March 6-10. They are doing only the weekdays, but Marc said people could use the whole week if needed. If you participate you can share your sketches on the social media of your choice using the hashtag #OneWeek100People2017.
I am hoping to participate and am thinking about the best places to go to find lots of people and figures. It means drawing about 20 people per day...not impossible, but not easy either. It will help to use a medium that is easy to work with and fast. Hopefully at the end of the week our people sketches will have improved immensely.
