Pencil on paper
Last month I was very fortunate to participate in Julia Kay’s Portrait Party Meet Up at the High Line in New York. When I first joined Julia’s Portrait Party group on Flickr I would never have guessed that I would be meeting and drawing with so many interesting artists from all around the world. This meet up coincided with the Mobile Art Conference the weekend before so it was a wonderful way to wind down after all the Iamda activity. We met at the High Line Park near the Chelsea Market and the weather was unseasonably warm that day. We sat at the tables drawing each other while passer by’s stopped to see what what we were doing. I chose to work mainly in pencil that day but everyone used a variety of materials, from watercolor, sharpie, iPhone and iPad. There was a lot of drawings and photos from that day and they can be seen here on the discussion for the Portrait Party. Julia Kay’s Portrait Party pool and discussions can be seen here on Flickr.
