Three Hundred and Sixty-Four!

The pattern and overlay really interested me after I did the first iteration of this image. This is a second version which offers its own special qualities. I really enjoy the color, it seems so soft and quiet which reminds me of the mood every day I see this. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Sixty!

I’ve been looking at windows recently, particularly those of old warehouses near my work. They always seem interesting at night/early morning because they are illuminated but not evenly. They are aged and show wear. Even the color that emits though the panes of glass changes from panel to panel. The whole image has nice a quiet vibe to it. It’s not nearly as dark as it should be but that is somewhat hard for me still. I’ll get there eventually. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Thirty-Three!

Alright, so I love going to cafes more than most people understand. I like the vibe, I love the food and beverages but most of all I love people watching. I sit back, pick up a pen and paper and sketch or write about those around me. I like to figure out their story and by no means do I mean their real life story. We are talking about the one I assign to them. The other evening, when the weather was absolutely the best we have had this year, I felt inspired to go out after work to the cafe and draw. While there I encountered a vast amount of people considering it was a Wednesday but they were all so different. I became fixated on this elderly gent who seemed so lonely. He was there far longer than I was and for the majority of the time he only had a coffee in hand. He stared blankly at a pastry case but not as if longing for its contents almost as if caught up in a memory or thought. If makes you wonder what a person is thinking sometimes. Anyway, as I have mentioned before people are not my strength which is in part why I am forcing this exercise more often. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Eight!

Last post of the day, I promise! I tried to integrate the cooler tones I was seeing outside into this image. Simultaneously, there was a documentary on a mountain range in California which I found inspiring and used as a reference tool. I love the mountains and cannot wait for my hiking season to begin. I only hike from Spring to mid fall as I do not own the winter gear but have always been in awe of those who are brave enough to go out. They must experience such quiet calm moments along the way. When hiking the mountains I find that my favorite moments are when I can hear nothing else but the wind passing through the trees. Enjoy and see you next time!
