Capture the Moment

From Phil’s Sketchbook

June 2, 2020 by

artwork The Hudson River means different things to different people. Like all great landmarks, the Hudson River is able to give something to its admirers, leaving them with good feelings. For me, it's not a striped bass on the end of a fishing line that excites, but the chance to make a river portrait. Lately I've taken a small notepad and pen whenever I go outside. An economy of strokes with a ballpoint pen holds the shapes and lines that catch my fancy. At a later, quiet moment I can get out my colors – orphaned color pencils at present – and aspire to recapture the moment at the river's edge, or maybe discover a new moment at the edge of an unknown river.
