This was the most experimental piece of the night. I borrowed a brush marker from my friend Randy Gallegos. The ink bled as soon as I applied watercolor (with my finger). The marker bled further when I sprayed the piece with fixative to seal the pastel touches before scanning the painting.

This was the first of the long poses on the day I forgot my brushes at home. I borrowed various supplies from friends (like the blue pastel from my friend Wayne) and McGyvered some rudimentary brushes by chewing on cocktail toothpicks. The washes were done with my finger. Suck on that Jorge Colombo!

I forgot my brushes at home and none of my friends happened to have any to spare. So I used my finger as a brush. This was the last drawing of the night. By now I had refined my finger technique. The next few posts after this will be pretty experimental.

Louisa As A Gypsy, Standing In Profile, Her Left Hand On Her Hip (Detail)

I painted this last night at the Society of Illustrators especially for this milestone. The night was filled with great energy. The model, Louisa, was new, and did a really good job. The band was new and provided a great soundtrack for the night. Katie filled in for Matt at the bar and mixed me some extra strong drinks, that helped me relax, let loose, and do this painting (which I'm pretty happy with). And I was lucky that the drinks didn't kick in fully until after I finished this drawing.
