More October Watercolors

I'm making an effort to spend more time drawing in my sketchbook. I always forget how theraputic it can be, even if sometimes I'm just pushing paint around. It's probably the one place where I can draw whatever I want and not care what anybody thinks. Except for you, nameless occasional reader of this blog. You are my everything.

Anyway, here are some sketches from the last couple days.

From photographs by Albert Arthur Allen. Mostly from the 1920s.

The SJSU tower.

The intersection at 4th and San Fernando, as seen from the 6th floor of the Martin Luther King Library.

Early October Watercolor Sketches

It's been a while since I've posted any actual sketchbook pages. Here are some from today and last Saturday:

The indie film I worked on premiered last Saturday at the Mill Valley Film Festival. I drew storyboards for the film way back in early pre-production, before they'd even had a complete cast. And now after over a year, we finally get to see the finished product! Pretty satisfying feeling.

Sketches during class. "Week 8" refers to this being the eighth week of classes.

Last stop, the Fremont BART station. I was a little early picking Amber up from BART, so I sketched this out real quick and then painted it later at home.

doodle at seven stories high

I was at the library on campus researching our current project in BFA when I found a seat in the corner of the building with this great view. I couldn't resist.

Drawn from the 7th floor of the Martin Luther King Library at SJSU. The gigantic linked image is half the actual size I was drawing.
