Bratislava is relatively quiet, tonight. Many people have left to return to their hometowns around the rest of Slovakia. In Prašná Bašta, I saw this man sitting in one of the corners, and thought it would make a good composition for an addition to my public spaces / private conversation series. Nothing techy to report, so please, enjoy the drawing.
This one is a tad old, but I'm just now getting around to posting it . Plus, I thought this one was mediocre. The colors are a little dull, I feel, and kind of turned me off at the time.
This restaurant serves authentic Slovak food. They also play Tom Waits. So, already it's one of my favorite establishments here. Seriously, though. The restaurant is below ground level, so you set down into this romantic cavernous space, eat delicious Slovak food, and drink Czech beer on tap. What draws me to this place is the atmosphere just as much as the quirky sculptures spread about. The drunken goblin is the centerpiece of the restaurant. Oh wait, there are two of those. I guess they both are. Expect to see many a drawing from this place.
I tried a slightly different coloring method this time. Art Werger is a printmaker I know who prints color etchings. He has a cool plate, and a warm plate for respective colors. I tried a similar idea this time around. Here, I have the "key" drawing. But underneath I have a cool layer and a warm layer, followed by a layer of local color. I am moderately pleased with the results. We will see if this works in the future. Ciao!
