Cape Escape 3 x 3

Once again I find myself getting inspired while away on vacation in the Cape. Maybe it’s because I had a chance to relax or maybe its because I was able to see A LOT of art. Either way it makes me happy.

First we stopped off at the Heritage Museum where they had a great exhibition showcasing three generations of The Wyeth Family. I was familiar with some of the works but had no idea how talented each family member was. The show focused on N.C, Andrew and Jamie Wyeth. I definitely recommend looking at their work. Each had their own voice but you can absolutely see how their work influenced each other.

The Second great art experience of the weekend was my visit to the Edward Gorey House. I’ve always been obsessed with his works and we figured why not check this place out for a whopping 8 Dollars! The tour was interesting and I loved just getting a glimpse into his mind via his collections, stories, clothes etc. Needless to say I bought a couple more books he illustrated, The Sopping Thursday and The Doubtful Guest, GREAT reads.

The rest of my time was spent wondering around Provincetown, indulging in bevies and foods and just looking. I mean really looking and taking things in not just walking with my eyes open. There is a difference you know.

The above was an interpretation of something I saw while running in Dennis. It’s by no means an exact account but it gives a general gist. It was a quick, relaxed sketch I did when I returned home.

This was an interpretation of the image above! Obviously more pattern inspired but again a good experience. Now to add some serious depth or color blocks and we would be all set.

Enjoy and see you next time.

Not quite 3 x 3 but who is really paying that much attention?

It’s Tayto!  Looking quite dapper if I don’t say so myself and he is Blue. Tayto has a way of staring uncontrollably at a person to the point of awkwardness. Luckily, being that he is a dog its not quite as weird as if the human next to you stared for a solid 5 minutes. Imagine how strange that would be.

Anyway, he was just sitting so still I decided to sketch him out. Naturally I had a highlighter near by so he became a blue Pomeranian. After sketching Tayto I felt as if he needed a little something, a chair, a pillow, maybe a thrown if he had his way. He acts pretty entitled like a Royal might, really he is just a moody little thing but I love him all the same.

Enjoy and see you next time!
