Headlong Toward Communism

Originally uploaded by Id Marks
Memento Park, just outside Budapest, Hungary, is well worth the visit if you are a fan of monumental tributes to communism. (I have no idea why, but I absolutely love this stuff!)

The sculpture I've sketched here is HYOOOGE! Awe inspiring. (Republic of Councils monument, this link goes to not-my-picture, but has a person in the frame for size reference.)
(Click through to Flickr for a few more slices of sketchbook from the week I spent in Budapest.)

Took a painting class...

'Free Watercolor' - techniques for rendering from life, photos, and from imagination, without getting all hung up on details. The jazz of painting.

It was fun, and I learned some super techniques. Not sure how much it will affect my painting in the future, but then again, I never am sure how much anything is going to affect my painting. :)
