Hello everyone, my name is James Nutt. Cathy was kind enough to invite me to become one of the co-authors after getting involved with the Facebook page. I am an architect living in Minneapolis. I draw a lot. I draw at work, at home, and it is almost all that I did in high school. (So much drawing didn't help my GPA, but that is what I get paid to do now). I love this forum and I love seeing others people's work.
Most of my drawings are very small and about 35 minutes a piece. Mostly pen and pencil, but lately a lot of IPad drawing and watercolor. Quite a few of my drawings and past drawings fit the Urban Sketchers rules. This year I gave myself a challenge to draw everyday and post. For the most part it happens and I have really enjoyed sharing and hearing the comments. I look forward to contributing on this blog seeing so much amazing work.
This sketch is from today at the Minneapolis downtown Barnes and Noble. I had the rare condition of having a couple of hours to kill between an eye appointment and the zoning board I sit on. I did several attempts at drawing today’s farmer’s market with no success. I decided I had broken my own cardinal rule of trying to start the day with too complex of a drawing. So I zoomed in one of the Macy’s building windows I have always loved and got a sketch I was happy with. This drawing is approximately 5x7.
