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.

I was hanging out at the South Lawn Park in front of the Capital building in Austin over the weekend, and these are a few sketches that I made. They’re in pen on 8.5 x 11″ paper.

Cutting a Mat for Painting of Allan

January 30, 2017

I’m getting a couple more pieces ready to enter into another show, and one of them I needed to place behind a mat. This is the gouache painting I finished a few months back, “Allan at the Boat Dock.”

I originally was thinking of a lighter shade for the mat, but this was the best color the store had that I liked, and I think it looks okay. I used a Logan Mat Cutting Kit model 525 to cut it, and it’s not the best model they sell, but works fine once you get the hang of it. This painting is 20 x 16″, and that’s about as large an opening it will cut.

I still need to attach it and the painting to a backing sheet of mat board. I’ve got a frame picked out that’s dark brown, or I may go with black. I’ll wait until I hear if it gets accepted before I decide.

Drawing Final: Guitar in the Park

January 20, 2017

This is the final state of the drawing, not accounting for some minor clean up I still need to do. I darkened the bushes behind his leg some, too, so it would be easier to see the leg. I’ll let it sit for a few days to see if there’s more to be done.

Drawing Update 3: Guitar in the Park

January 16, 2017

Here’s the latest state of the drawing. I’ve gotten more of the figures drawn in and started on the back wall. I very loosely scribbled in some lines on the back wall to get a random texture, and now I’m scratching away more regular lines.
