Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida (27 February 1863 – 10 August 1923) was a Valencian Spanish painter. Sorolla excelled in the painting of portraits, landscapes, and monumental works of social and historical themes. His most typical works are characterized by a dexterous representation of the people and landscape under the sunlight of his native land.
So after last nights painting I realized that the largest problem for me as an artist currently is my drawing. It seems pretty obvious what I need to do next, I need to focus on drawing with a brush. I feel that once I master drawing with a brush that there is nothing I can’t do with paint. So the question here is how do I focus on drawing with a brush, or what is the best way to draw with a brush.

About two years ago I watched my neighbor struggle to get in his car so he could go to the grocery. He is paraplegic. I had picked up the mail and was back in my 3rd floor apt before he finished pulling himself and his wheelchair into the car. I imagined that it would take him about 2 minutes to drive to the Safeway only a couple blocks away where he would have to spend another 10 minutes just getting out of the car. I was in the gym the next day… and I will be in the gym again today.
