Yesterday afternoon we had natural sketch meeting,
this we do every wednesday afternoon.
We meet in the city walls actually inside, so cool.
We have quick poses no more than 10 minutes sometimes 1 minute
I am going to introduce someone every week and show their work
THESE ARE THE CITY WALLS
THIS IS CARLOS DANUS GREAT ARTIST FROM PALMA
HEY CARLOS WHAT AGE DID YOU START PAINTING
I started at 23 years old. do you want to hear the story
YES OF COURSE CARLOS
After finishing university I studied tourism I went to work in aviation and was sent to Munich. there I met a work colleague who said îf you weren't working here what would you like to do?^ I though a while and answered I quite like art but never thought of it for a profession.
the next days took me to the LEMBACHHAUS MUC. and I was hooked, i made my mind up this is what I wanted to do, and so here I am.
ARE YOU ALWAYS SATISFIED WITH YOUR WORK?
Is any artist it is always a sort of fight to evolve
IF YOU DIDNT PAINT WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO
I suppose carry on in aviation
WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE ARTISTS
Without doubt Marlene Dumas
of course the English early watercolorists particurlaly the watercolors of CONSTABLE they were sketches for his oil paintings. Turner some not all.
THESE ARE MY MISERABLE EFFORTS
HOPE TO DO BETTER NEXT WEEK
