I'm trying to really push this pencil drawing and develop the values. Here's another sneak peek detail shot. Birds!
Here's a progress shot of a new personal piece. I'm drawing on Canson Vellum (one side the lines, the other side the values). I've also used Photoshop to help move and resize some elements (a little faster but same principle as tracing paper and photocopying the drawing).
I plan to paint this one in oils so I'll be prepping the board tonight. I think I'll make it 16"x20". That should give the bear cliffs and waterfall enough room to feel massive. The working title is "Bear Cliffs" or "Bear Falls". Anybody have any other suggestions?
Out and about at the local zoo. Penguins, giraffes, and kudo. The wolves were even out.
Here's a page from my sketchbook. I drew with some old colored pencils in a Paperblanks brand notebook (Very thin but smooth paper. I like how the pencils feel on it but not the slight transparent nature of the paper).
Now I'm looking for ways to incorporate this critter into a dragon. Part stately creature, part comedian. It sat very still and regal looking and then waggled its tongue at us out the side of its mouth.
As a little reminder of the seasons changing here's a pastel painting I created. I give you Persephone and Demeter. Persephone's time with Hades is soon at an end. Demeter will celebrate soon with growth and green.
The original is framed and available for purchase. Contact me if you are interested.
