Two New Sketches

March 31, 2019

I’m still trying to get something solid worked out for that library mural proposal, but haven’t quite nailed it down yet. Have a couple ideas, one is more about technique, the other about content, so I’ll see if I can’t bring them together somehow. I have until the end of the week.

In the meantime, here are a couple sketches I made recently as I went out to get more motivation and inspiration on ideas. For the man, I was concentrating on lines, and for the woman I wanted to show more shapes.


Sketches: People at the Library

Well, I’m still alive. I’ve been struggling with the library mural concept I mentioned last time. Nothing solid is formulating as yet, so I decided to spend time at the library itself, just drawing people, and see what might come from that. Here are a few of the better sketches.


Inspirational Mural Artists

An opportunity has risen recently for me to make a proposal for a mural project at a local library. I have about one month to work up a concept. To get some motivation, I have spent time online looking at pictures of favorite artists who have done this sort of work, such as John Singer Sargent, Frank Brangwyn, Dean Cornwell, and Maxfield Parrish. I found it interesting how they adapted their styles somewhat to this new format. Here are a few examples of their work I found that I would like to share.
