Meanwhile in the Studio

The jafagirls got together in my studio and experimented in our sketchbooks. The goal was not to spend time thinking about it, just rip a picture out of a magazine and start to paint over or around it. Mine ended up looking very Basquiat like, and I am not sure Rufus liked the way I depicted him (or maybe he did as he imagines himself to be quite a scary big brute).

I love this picture of Rufus!! :D

Sounds like fun. I'd like to try it, but I seem to be the only one in my group to keep a sketchbook and then only sporadically.
Definitely a Basquiat knock off but I think you think more people than he did... I can tell yours is a person and not a turd on the sidewalk. I agree with the dog, it can be helpful at times to present as a bit ready to strike. Maybe he's an artist too and you just captured his inner attitude!

thanks for dropping by donald and bringing a smile to my face.
well I hadn't intended it to be a bas quiat knockoff but I basquiat I got-minus the turd! LOL

hiay, how are you? It was fun just to goof about with friends, and play in the sketchbook. I think next time we are going to go and sketch at the musueum, maybe, if we are in the mood.

Mr Zip said…
Oh, I'm fine, just been preoccupied. Thanks for asking.

I would imagine Rufus is quite pleased. Absolutely love the sketch!

Rufus is so cute. What a fun depiction of him. Your blog topics are very interesting... I'm off to look at more.
