New Painting Started: A Kiss On the Neck

August 7, 2017

I’m finally getting around to starting a new painting. It’s based on an old photo of mine of two friends, John and Sarah, who posed for me.

This is the undertone I’ve put down in a thin ink wash made of sepia India ink from Sennelier. The surface is a small piece of Multimedia Artboard, 8 x 16 inches. I’ll be using casein as my paint media on top of this.

Although the Mutimedia Artboard has both a smooth and rough side, this is actually on the smooth side, even though it looks rough. It’s just due to the way the thin wash is absorbed into the surface. I rather like the texture, and may try to keep it in the final.

Drawing Final: Charlie Fishing

July 9, 2017

Here’s the final version, at least for now. The size is about 10 x 16.5″. I was debating whether to shade in the concrete pier. I decided not to since I didn’t want that “X” shape it would create in the center. I’ll let it sit for awhile, and see if it needs any touching up.

Drawing Update: Charlie Fishing

July 6, 2017

I’ve got the far shoreline placed, and have begun drawing in the water. It’s looking a little tilted on the right side, but I’ll straighten it out later.

New Drawing Started: Charlie Fishing

June 30, 2017

Here’s the beginning of a new drawing I started a couple days ago. My friend Charlie posed for me while he got a little fishing done.

I’m using a Uniball ink pen on 18 x 24″ paper (just showing the far right side.) I’ve just started on the background, and the water should be a challenge to get as smooth as I’d like it be look. I took photos of the creek so I could work on this later (now.)

Sketches at Healthcare Rally in Austin

June 25, 2017

Last week there was a rally in Austin, TX on the Capital grounds about the US Healthcare bill. There was a large crowd of different sorts of people there. I shot a few minutes of video and photos of the crowd, and later made these two drawings from some of that imagery.

Here’s the final state of the drawing; although, I’d like to add a background to make it a finished drawing once I decide what that’s going to be.

Started a new drawing of my model friend, Beverly. It will be a full figure, but for now I’m just showing the top section that I’ve got going. Not sure what I’ll do with the background yet. It’s 18 x 24″ on paper using a Uniball #207 ink pen.
