Les Halles

What wonderful weather we're having! It's mostly rainy with cool winds and plenty of falling leaves. Im in love with this season, except the frizzy hair but that's what hats are for! I've been recipe searching again. I want to taste things in different ways. Mostly italian, lol. I'll probably post some soon. 

Bourdain, Graphite on Paper
This past week i finished the Bourdain drawing and this week i am starting a new piece. This one is going to be a much larger piece and much more serious. I am going to reveal the subject during the next live drawing which will be on Friday the 1st at 10am.

Btw, here's the link to the restaurant's website

Canvas for my next piece.

I am so excited about the painting sessions coming up mid October! Ken and I are  prepping with the rest of the group to get a set calendar for everyone's schedule. Soon our VA Beach art lovers will be able to come and paint with us!

Picture of  KG, edited with actions. :)

Also, i've been wanting to learn to use actions on photoshop so that i can vamp up our photography and so now im learning how to create them. Thanks Bren for the links!

Enjoy the fall weather,

Ken and I went to Richmond this past weekend to see the Chuck Close exhibit. It was fun and inspiring to see works from Mucha to Van Gogh surrounding us. The atmosphere was great through out the streets. 

Ken's been practicing shooting, and i need to brush up on my poses.

Lately I've been thinking too much. Thinking, and not really doing. I feel like I was stuck for a while. Not in a "Artist's Block" sort of way, but in a trance of thought that completely overwhelmed me, having to do with every part of my life. Realizing this, I decided that from now on, or for a while at least, im just going to do. Not thinking so much will save me time. I think I will enjoy things a bit more too.

So there are some new shirts up. There aren't any until you see them. So don't expect them until I post a link.

I started a new sketch book a few weeks ago. So did Ken. I admire his talent. We've been sketching and painting. Soon whoever is in the area will be able to come paint with us around the Hill Top area. 

Until next time

P.S. I started doing a live drawing thing online. It will be every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday unless otherwise noted. The links will be posted on the Kinetik Facebook page and they will usually go on in the morning (9am to 11am eastern time). Feel free to ask some questions or leave comments.
