I can’t believe it’s been two months since my last post. And it’s not that I haven’t been sketching; on the contrary, I’ve been sketching a lot. I’ve been trying new materials, new styles, practicing a lot. Tonight I even been practicing caricatures.
I joined a Facebook group of Puerto Rican caricaturists and got inspired to try it out. This week members submit their caricature of the chosen public figure, the legendary wrestler Carlitos Colón. I grew up watching him wrestle and my late grandpa was a huge fan of his. I tried diverse styles, first more cartoonish, with felt-tip pen and watercolors; then tried a more… elegant style? I like more the latter, here are both:
I also have been doing some Virtual Paintouts, last month at Valparaíso, Chile and last night at Vilnius, Lithuania. Here are both:
Also I’ve been sketching on location, especially people in action while I was participating in Festival Claridad. Here are a few of my sketches there:
Best of all is that I’m enjoying the process, learning a lot and having fun.
