Exploring Central Havana on Foot

The Gran Teatro, Havana's stunning Old World opera house. Breathtaking. That's the word that keeps cropping up when I try to describe Havana, after traveling there twice in June. Our first trip was leading the 5-day "Sketch Cuba" tour, which is described in several posts below. For the second trip, my wife Patti and I traveled alone to retrieve my "Hemingway's Cuba" exhibition of sketches from Finca Vigia (Hemingway's home outside Havana, now a national museum) and bring it back to the U.S…

Kenya: A Transformative Experience

It has been a struggle, after returning from Africa, to find words to adequately describe the people, places, and experiences that Patti and I knew while in Kenya without resorting to long stories, and even then trying to capture the experience is elusive. One word that keeps coming to me is transformational--that is, if you allow it, it changes you. After seeing it, you see the world through a different lens, in the same way that you see the world differently after some rite of passage. I'd…

James Richards Sketchbook

This series retraces my steps in sketching Paris's magnificent opera house, the Palais Garnier. It's an irresistible subject, at once visually overwhelming yet with a design structure that conveys a harmonious whole. As with many of my urban sketches, I begin by trying to make sure everything I want to draw will fit onto my page. In this instance, I used people on the street to set an eye-level (horizon) line, then blocked out the height and width of the three main levels of the facade…
