Had a really fun time drawing at the San Diego Opera rehearsal last night. Scotty Buncake made an appearance, as did Eric Shannower--and I got to meet Batton Lash. I think we were the only four drawing....
I warmed up with pencil, then went to felt-tip marker. The markers were exciting, but a little overwhelming with so much going on. I felt like I was getting too involved with the drawings, not watching the people onstage enough. Switched back to pencil for this one here, which was my last sketch. I brought it home and colored it up with markers. I was kind of all over the place, but this one came out nice, I think. Tho' it looks too much like it was done from a photo (it wasn't!).
I'm looking forward to drawing the next one (should happen this time next month).
And oh, yeah: before the opera I got to have Doritos and Pellegrino with Tom (and Patty) Moon, and pizza with Jimmy Gorham. TALK ABOUT YR BANNER DAY!
