John Singer Sargent: “A portrait is a painting with something wrong with the mouth.” I laugh every time I think of him saying this, as he was such a master of portraiture. It is both a curse and a blessing that WAS-H’s take-in is tomorrow so I have to stop and sign it!
Another sketch/line drawing from a Mayville, NY photo circa 1898. Summer is coming–we shall soon paint these historic drawings together!
In preparation for historic line drawings that my students will paint at Mayville Watercolors at the Depot this summer, I’m sketching from old photos, then creating line drawings. In addition to watercolor immersion classes, we will offer simple paint-in-the-lines classes all summer. Here is one we’ll paint at classes on July 24 & 25. Check out www.mayvillewatercolors.com.
