Beach doodle in my sketchbook I did while at the beach on vacation with my family this past week, one of a few. I'm too restless to sit in a chair and bake...so I bake and draw...kill two birds with one stone. :-) I draw on a Moleskine sketchbook with either a Pilot Namiki Falcon fountain pen or Faber Castell Penn India ink markers or both. Sometimes I may even add a quick watercolor wash. Great to do while on vacation or even in between illustration deadlines...cheap therapy. ;-)
Starting the week off with a another Sunday night doodle while watching TV with the fam. Dragons...who doesn't love 'em? They are so fun to draw. I have a seemingly endless number of them in my head wanting to get out. Should I see a health care specialist for this? ;-)
I did this quick sketch while watching a little TV last Sunday night with the fam. I love to sit back and relax and doodle in my moleskin sketchbook. I love just scribbling with loose line work and letting the sketch flow on the page. Owls are always fun to draw and this one easily found his way onto the page...maybe I will do a painting with one as the main player instead of a small element in it...does that sound like a good idea to you? Let me know. Stay tuned.
The Perils Of Keeping It Real is my journey of getting back into analog art in addition to my digital art.
This is a second go around at the “Catfields and McDawgs”. I wasn’t happy with the watercolor part of the process so I am starting over. I didn't take the extra step the first time and do a color comp...I sooo know better than that. I was too eager to jump into the painting and not planning can be very unforgiving with watercolors. I need it done by this week to enter it into the Dog And Cats Show at the ZaPow gallery in Asheville NC next week. Now I have to retrace the sketch onto the watercolor block, re-ink the drawing then paint the masking fluid over the painting to begin painting the background. What I would give to have a command Z or undo with watercolors. Analog takes a much tougher toll on my patience than digital work.
Check out how I see the world. I usually see creatures in everyday things and just thought I would start illustrating them...is that something that needs medical attention? :-)
I was looking out my studio window when I saw this creature in the branches of this fir tree, so I had to sketch it out. So if you see me giggling to myself...now you know why. Does that require medical attention as well? :-)
This could become a regular posting thang...waddayathink?
