From My Sketchbook – Week 10

This past week I did more viola playing than sketching (you can read some of the nice reviews of New York City Ballet‘s performances at the Kennedy Center here and here); but on the 3+ hour train ride home yesterday evening I did quite a bit of catching up.  In fact, I filled up the rest of the pages in my little Moleskin sketch book! If you look carefully, you’ll even see more of my various head studies showing through the pages… And, when I ran out of pages in my sketch book, I grabbed the next thing handy – the envelopes from my paychecks – and did these sketches with ink and my French Grey Prismacolor marker. (Meanwhile, my husband completed half a book’s worth of mind teaser puzzles and games.) Each to his own, I guess!
