late october weather

The sky is finally blue after a couple of days of smoke and haze. These last orange/violet clouds were only for early risers. They were completely gone by 8am. These views are out the kitchen window. The green is the tops of my citrus trees. The mts. are the Verdugos looking southwest. The sketchbook is the Hand Book Journal - not good watercolor paper. The paintbrushes are nice though, Isaby Kolinsky.

Leaving one sky for another

The Utah sky from my favorite restaurant, The Bit & Spur" in Springdale, and driving back into my home state of California which is on fire. These are the east side of the fires near Lake Arrowhead at first sight from I-15 (tuesday). Thought the freeway would be closed the closer I got, but I made it home.

Costume gesture drawing

These are quick (2 or 3 minute) sketches done with watercolor on animation paper, from the Thursday night gesture drawing sessions at Disney. If you want to see some good sketches, go to Mark or Cholki's blog. The links are on the right.
The model was wearing a transparent "korean summer gown" and had black underwear on.

More quick sketches

These are from last week. Disney has changed our weekly life drawing sessions to every other week. I guess the money was needed to revamp California Adventureland. The renovation is to cost $1.1 billion. I'm happy that the sessions weren't cancelled entirely.

more firefighter

Have too much freelance work to keep weather journal the past couple of weeks. All I am painting are fire fighters and birthday cards.
