The Joy of Sax
Posted is a doodle from my sketch book of a saxophone player... created with a black litho crayon and added watercolor washes. I had seen a street musician that day playing in one of the subway stations, and made this quick doodle from memory once I got back to my studio. I liked the way it came out. Sketches and doodles have an energy and life in their expression, mostly because of the speed of execution and raw image quality. And generally sketches are usually not for others to view, which eliminates self-consciousness and allows the artist to fall more quickly into an intuitive mode of making the lines and marks.
