Yesterday I went to Seattle with two friends to attend the annual Drawing Jam at Gage Institute. Drawing Jam is a day of open drawing. Gage offers dozens of models in many different rooms, and you can circulate through the school and find all kinds of interesting things to draw. There were throngs of people and the atmosphere was electric. Everyone was having fun. I drew for about six hours and got lots of drawings. Here are the best ones.

I made this sketch this morning on a cold and clear day. This is a beautiful house and barn on Poulson Road near Silverdale.
I made this 5x7 painting from the sketch I made this morning.

I've had a number of failures lately of portraits of young women. I can't seem to get the proportions of the face right. I think it's because there are so few landmarks...no wrinkles or creases to divide up the face. You have to figure out where to put the eyes in all that blank space. And I always seem to make the nose too long. I did this portrait in ink and I'm fairly pleased with the proportions.

I made these sketches at life drawing on Friday.
15 minutes with watercolor pencil and wash. I like the proportions on the upper body. Couldn't seem to get that left leg properly.

I made this painting based on the sketch I made of the Silverdale waterfront this afternoon (below).
