While attending concerts with Frank, I usually have a pen and sketch book in hand where I can draw what I am seeing. That means fast and furious. In fact, I have noticed that the faster the music, the faster I draw. And that sometimes is a good thing since I don’t have time to analyze or think about what I am drawing. The eye-hand response becomes spontaneous. I have drawn hundreds, maybe thousand, of musicians through the years. Many of the gesture drawings in this portfolio were either done at a concert or used to make larger drawings or paintings in the studio. With live concerts impossible during the covid crisis, we learned to enjoy YouTube concerts all over the world! I found that I could still enjoy drawing as the images flashed by on the screen, a further challenge in that the camera operator did not necessarily show what I was interested in drawing. But I love a good challenge!
