mini tribute to barbara bradley..
I was knocked over to hear about the death of Barbara Bradley and her husband. I had just been blessed only two weeks earlier to attend her facial expressions workshop which was super fun.. she was hilarious and had great feedback and gave me grief and..(all with a wink..) well to watch her sweep her arm with her conte charcoal crayon to draw a leg in one motion was just .. somethin! I am sorry ( selfishly) that I won't get to learn from her - nor will any of my fellow students .. she will be missed - massively..
anyway.. I needed to take my colored pencils for a drive yesterday and since she was also a huge fan of Norman Rockwell I did a few things.. that guy is from a Sat Evening Post cover and was playing a trumpet ( i didn't get that far and wanted to do that little blond kid.. i have never really used colored pencils so forgive the mistakes.. but color in my sketchbook is cool!!
i tweaked the color balance.. not that it's helping.. MUCH!
