Now Playing Tracks

ahhhh, my favorite sunday activity, a burger, and some unsuspecting patrons at my new favorite establishment. 
some of these folks stayed very still for a REALLY long time, but of course, when i started to sketch them, they moved. but i did my best and had a ball doing it. 
the guys on the bottom JPG were playing darts and checking their cell phones almost religiously. it was fun to blast out a fast drawing while they did either activity.

i challenged my 2nd grade students to practice drawing what they see by building a still-life. i collected a bunch of random things around the art room and dug up this old deer skull from a dark, spider-filled closet. i was fascinated by the subtle curves, and value changes. i attempted to capture it all with just a Lamy Safari pen and black ink. i have to say, this is one of my favorites so far!
i really wanted to add color, but i was too scared to mess up the original drawing—plain jane it is!

i have been taking some watercolor classes to finally get the hang of these things (it’s a very tough medium). so i wanted to paint a subject with only watercolors and no help from one of my many pens from my pen army. i did a quick pencil sketch and set to work. these paint bottles have been starring at me for a few weeks and the sun was hitting them nicely. i was working along side my students showing them some techniques and how to draw/paint from life—something they do not do a lot of. i was uber-happy about the outcome. it’s going to be a long road, but i can see progress!

it looks like we will have one nice day this week, today. so instead of golfing i went out for a little stroll and came upon these creepy, abandoned, hospital buildings—the kind you would see on ghost hunters. and conveniently there was a bench nearby! 
i sketched them with my noodler’s pen and some j. herbin “pearl noire” ink. i then hit them with my favorite triad of colors: ultramarine, burnt sienna and indigo (maybe a touch of quin gold).
