Not a Painting

flexible
I didn’t get a painting done today but was drawing (a bit). I was helping a friend with a illustration for his tennis team, an Angry Birds kind of thing. It will look different from this but decided to post this version because I thought it would be fun to do a painting with process colors and dots (aka pop art) for one of the daily paintings.

Tennis Ball (Hooray for Rafa!)

flexible
Hooray for Rafa Nadal! I painted a tennis ball on a clay court while watching Rafa beat Roger for his sixth French Open title this morning. I may go back into this and add a white line, or paint Rafa on the ball.

Tennis Balls

flexible
My buddy Robby celebrates his 64th birthday today, so I thought I would paint him some tennis balls. He is after all a master of these furry ovid creatures. The it in a parking lot, with balls on the dash of the car with my sketchbox on my lap, while Mason has his cello lesson. NPR on the radio, sunshine and painting... I had to work really fast on this on and am quite happy with how it turned out. Robby likes it too. His granddaughter can now read and now knows that he is 64. She also approved of the painting. / In private collection
