Portrait... Franco de Vita

Franco de Vita portrait in watercolor, watercolor pencils and graphite pencils...

Meow there, Monday!  Another one of my fave singers, Franco de Vita!   I wanted to do this portrait in a loose, stroke-y style, but somehow it just went the other way around.  Anyway, I used my usual mix of art mediums:  watercolor (Prang, for the base colors), watercolor pencils (Derwent and Faber Castell) and graphite pencils (Staedtler EE and Liberty).      

Sharing some of his songs... Hard to choose which songs to include in this blogpost.  Sooooooo many beautiful songs!    =^.^=

"Te Veo Venir Soledad"
I loooooove this one!  My fave part is the last third of the song (at about 4:15)...

"Tan Solo Tu"

"Como Decirte No"

"Te Pienso Sin Querer"

"Si Tu No Estas"

"Si La Ves"

Chilly weather outfit... add some color! 

Meow there, Monday!     Well, summer's definitely over...  The rainy season has arrived. It was a wet and chilly weekend.  Time to take the jackets/cardigans out of the closet, or buy some new ones!  =^.^=

June sketching, part 2

Meow there, Monday!  Another quick sketch from my sketchbook...  Done with a reference photo from a magazine.  And sharing with you my song of the moment.  Been listening to this song several times a day, everyday for the past few months!  I looooooooove this song!  Como Yo Te Ame by Alejandro Fernandez.  One of my fave singers!  =^.^=

June sketches, part 1...

Meow there, Monday!  A couple of quick sketches from when I was out and about... Flipped through a magazine for reference photos.  These are fun to do!  I love the spontaneity and freedom of doing quick sketches!  Very in-the-moment drawing.  No pressure with getting the likeness of the face... No over fiddling with the shading and details... Just quick movements of the hand/pencil... going with the flow!  =^.^=
