Parque Colón

Otra vista del mismo parque que he visitado mil y una veces. A veces todo es cuestión de cambiar de punto de vista no? Este dibujo forma parte de un conjunto de la zona colonial. Esperen más pronto!

Figuring it out, pun intended.

*Hello all. I need to excuse myself for my language inconsistency, sadly I am a child of the spanglish generation and I tend to just go with the flow with whichever language that chooses to express itself through me. This time I will be tactful enough to translate, but I don't guarantee I will always do so. So if I ever write in a language you don't understand, at least you can always delight in the nonverbal language of pictures.

These drawings are from a figure drawing class I took last month with Melanie Reim, a fantastic artist and illustrator. Although I graduated some time ago from art school it is always good for me to go back to the basics, draw from a nude model and really understand the human figure.

I absolutely love this model in particular, since her body language is fierce and imposing without her even trying. Ah, the joys of having a model pose for me.

*Hola a todos, necesito disculparme por mi inconsistencia con el lenguaje, lamentáblemente soy hija de la generación "spanglish" y tiendo a dejarme llevar con cualquiera de los dos idiomas que desee expresarse a través de mí. Esta vez tendré el tacto como para traducir, pero no garantizo que siempre lo haré. Asi que si alguna vez escribo en un idioma que no entiendes, por lo menos siempre puedes disfrutar del lenguaje no verbal de las imágenes.

Estos dibujos son de una clase de dibujo de la figura que tomé el mes pasado con Melanie Reim, excelente artista e ilustradora. Aunque hace ya un tiempo que me gradué de la escuela de arte, siempre me hace bien volver a lo básico, dibujar modelos desnudos y realmente entender la figura humana.

Me encanta esta modelo en particular, ya que su lenguaje corporal es (feroz?) e imponente sin ella siquiera intentarlo. Ah... el deleite de tener un modelo que me pose.

To Study and to Play

Para estudiar y jugar, el cuerpo humano es ideal.

Andando por la Romana...

You never know what you'll find.

Three faces of Las Canitas

Absolutely none of them liked their portrait. I in turn, thought they were incredibly kind regardless.

Cerca de Samaná.

A Disney kind of Chavon

Musical and ethnical characters included!

Casa de Campo


Children of the Beach

Oh! la vie en Casa de Campo...

When a Mama Brush and a Papa Brush...

And that's how brushes are made...
A visit to the Daler and Rowney factory in La Romana cleared up the brush making process for me. I went with a drawing class and the people there were kind enough to show us around and let us snoop and draw. Sadly there wasn't too much time, if it was up to me I could have pitched a tent in the warehouse and drawn there for months...

Above a drawing of our kind hosts. Caroline, the lady, showed us around.

Don't ask about these machines, I just recorded them, sadly my industrial machinery knowledge is limited to say the least. Oh but they DO have such pretty shapes!

Here are some of the ladies that do part of the labor by hand. They sort out different kinds of hair, a tricky and intense process. They are all women since they have the delicateness and preparation to do so. Go girls!

More from the brush factory

The Cat and the Moon and Yeats and I

The cat and the Moon - W B Yeats

The cat went here and there
And the moon spun round like a top,
And the nearest kin of the moon,
The creeping cat, looked up.
Black Minnaloushe stared at the moon,
For, wander and wail as he would,
The pure cold light in the sky
Troubled his animal blood.
Minnaloushe runs in the grass
Lifting his delicate feet.
Do you dance, Minnaloushe, do you dance?
When two close kindred meet,
What better than call a dance?
Maybe the moon may learn,
Tired of that courtly fashion,
A new dance turn.
Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
From moonlit place to place,
The sacred moon overhead
Has taken a new phase.
Does Minnaloushe know that his pupils
Will pass from change to change,
And that from round to crescent,
From crescent to round they range?
Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
Alone, important and wise,
And lifts to the changing moon
His changing eyes.
