My Most Humble Tribute to Van Gogh


A little later than I expected since my last blog post, but here is the first brown and white drawing I did at Peet's!  Drawing at Peet's is very different than drawing at the museum, which is the last place I spent time.  I guess that is a good thing. It should not be the same I would think.  It is more difficult in some ways, but I have to think more on why that is.  Something to do with it being harder to know when to stop.



And here is #2.  I decided to turn this piece of paper (one of the other shades of brown) vertical because, believe it or not, I was thinking of that painting Van Gogh made called "The Cafe Terrace on the Place du Forum, Arles, at Night", in September, 1888.  I can't reproduce it here, but many of you may have seen it, an outdoor patio of the cafe with the glow of light on the tables and the dark starry sky overhead.  So I guess this one is in honor of Van Gogh whose drawings are my favorites, hands down; they will forever be an inspiration to me.

I will have these two new drawings up at Artmaggedon, among a few others.
