Venice Beach Art Wall

A couple of weekends ago, I rode down to Venice Beach to draw.  I found a nice spot to sit and watch the graffiti guys working on the Art Wall.

Wow thats really nice. I like that you haven't coloured the people it makes the art wall pop.

Ella said...

wow, awesome. I agree with Beatrix, by not coloring in the people, it does make the art the center of attention. I love it~

Chris Feagans said...

Nice drawing dude, I love the way you've captured the moment!

I thought how instead of you actually drawing the people you made them mysterious but you could see their outline. And I liked the back round that looked like a beach. And so it looked like the graffiti wall and the people were fantasy and the beach back round was real. You did anexcellent job!

Bea said...

Hi Vince, I'm a first time visitor here... have been browsing your entries. I enjoyed your drawings, especiallly the sketches from life. Reminds me of my college days when I sketched people all around me, doing the daily things. I don't do that as much now, but keep a sketchbook with me most of the time, just in case I get in the mood to draw. I invite you to visit my blog anytime. Your new job sounds exciting. Good luck!! I'll be back. bea

Jerry said...

Thats a great drawing. I like that the Artists lack color as if they are bleeding themselves out for their product.

My Thoughts

TechNews said...

Wow dude, I've been following you for some time now, and this is probably my favorite paintings/ drawings from you yet. Overall, I think you're a great artist. I've told some of my friends about your page, try and do the same for me. Here's my main blog, check it out if any of you guys like tech stuff or call of duty:

Truly stunning. And thought provoking.

Malc Hardingham said...

My wife is an artist and we have been to Venice Beach so I really related to the picture. My wife especially loved the colours and detail. Great.

Rachel Danos said...

In love the idea of "illustrating the illustrators" This could be a great idea for Photography and Digital media. Photos followed by digital animations.

Zoey said...

That is a awesome drawing!!!! How do you do that?! I can never draw 3D objects even if my life depended on it! That is SO cool.

Dillan Hackett said...

I love this pic, really quirky with the picture within the picture, the artists left undrawn make it feel like it is them colouring the world, not the other way around.
