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.

June 11, 2017

Okay, short of a little touching up here and there, I’m calling this painting finished. I also managed to get a more accurate photograph of it.

Painting Update 5: Jan Sunning on the Grass

June 7, 2017

Finally have an update on the new painting to show.

I repainted the towel color and pattern a couple times before I just decided to plow ahead with the last idea. I think I can make this one work, but I need to add a line pattern to it that I found, and then a few finishing touches to wrap it all up.

Painting Update 4: Jan Sunning on the Grass

May 25, 2017

I’ve now got her figure mostly painted, liking how her hair turned out. I had pictured her skirt being very flat, as I’ve made it, but now I’m wondering if it needs a little more lighter modeling around her thigh. I think I’ll move on to the beach towel anyway as I give that some thought.
