Last Saturday at the Woodinville Library I offered a short program on watercolor travel journals and introduced patrons to one of my favorite sketching mediums: the Stylist black water-soluble pen, which I buy at the University of Washington book store. At the same time, I shared Paul Laseau's wonderful book Freehand Sketching with them and his methods for drawing architecture, using frames and proportionality rather than getting technical with perspective. Here I am sharing the efforts of a 14 year old boy who attended the program; he used as inspiration a photo of the belfry at the restored San Fedele Monastery at the Tuscan Renaissance Center in Tuscany, Italy. I was very impressed at how readily he comprehended the way of seeing and drawing that I proposed. I learned later that he is very interested in film and live-action animation--it's fascinating how achieving some degree of skill in one art form can make us more open to learning new ones and can also hasten our comprehension of the new. I found that when I took up printmaking after years of watercolor. Many thanks to Pamela Hunter, librarian at Woodinville, and their Friends of the Library organization, for funding this program.
