What a night. I’ve been wanting to paint in a pub in New York City for quite a while now. Thank you Arne Englund for introducing me (as well as driving me) to Big Ed Sullivans Blues Jam at The Grisly Pear in Greenwich Village.
I thought I might switch off once a month painting in the city one week and Easton the other three. After last night, I think I might go two and two.
This might be my favorite drawing of the night.
This runs a close second. I was delighted when Jim liked this one the best.
I don’t have windowsills at The Grisly Pear for my paintings to dry on. I might have to stick with Copic Markers, though there is great support for using blue painter’s tape to tape them to the wall to dry. I started off painting in my usual technique of dip pen in ink followed by watercolor. I filled my little table and the one next to me in no time at all. I had to switch to the markers much too soon. There is always the top of the piano ……
Great music, great people, incredible energy. I can’t wait to go back.
