Shakespeare on the Common

Published by at 1:44 pm under shakespeare,sketchbook

I wasn’t terribly impressed this year. It was lighthearted and had some very funny bits, but I found myself bored more often than I should have. Oh well, it’s a huge challenge to perform a play outdoors — or then again, maybe the problem was just me.

As You Like It (the stage and audience, pre-performance)

    It is not you, it is the play. It has lots of boring bits. :-)

    The picture, however, is womnderful. What do you use for color? Do you do the color later, while you are drawing or after you have drawn the outline but while you are sitting there?

    I find Shakespeare on the Common so hit-or-miss. (Though from what I saw, they hit with the comedies, missed with the dramas.)

    Pen first, then watercolor and white charcoal pencil. Sometimes I add the color later, but in this case I did it on location.

    I really liked Taming of the Shrew (although they didn’t do anything redeeming with the misogyny). Midsummer Night’s Dream was pretty good. Hamlet I found quite painful, though part of that was not getting there in time for a good seat. Prior to that, I missed a bunch of years. I heard Macbeth was good.
