Starbucks Man

We were just done with my daughter's enrollment for kindergarten class and then our groceries, after which we decided for a coffee break. I found time for a quick sketch after finding an "almost stationary" subject. I put in the watercolor washes when I got home. starbucks_man

Andi on the Couch... The video!

First Sketch For 2012 from Rene Enriquez on Vimeo.

Sketching my daughter, Andi, while getting comfortable on the couch watching cartoons on the TV.

A good way to start the year... creatively, that is!

Andi On The Couch

My first sketch for the year.

Just to get the first one out of the way and hopefully the succeeding ones would flow more easily. It's like putting the first lines on a blank paper. Those are usually the hardest to do. My reason for creating this sketch doesn't make this less important. My daughter is five now and she's a big five year old, mind you. Of late, she can follow posing instructions whenever I want to take photos of her.

This time around, I asked her to continue what she was doing -- which was watching cartoons on TV -- and don't mind me sketching her. She was up to the task and I was able to put in some rough pencils quickly. I followed through with a brush pen which I couldn't skillfully handle as much as I wanted to. Showing a bit of rust there huh! Then I put in quick watercolor washes to give some hint of color in there.

 I didn't want to make it look "finished" because sketches are supposed to look like sketches. Just the way I like them to be.

 More to come! andicouch

I promise...

... that I'll be blogging again starting with this first post for 2012. I don't know what I want to talk about or what I want to share. I haven't decided yet. Blogging was fun when I started last 2002. I stopped last 2009 and sporadically appeared between then and now. Starting today, I resolve to get something happening with this domain again. Cheers!
