I'm just trying to get better at this, and still get everything else done that I need to do.
I specialize in digital art, drawing, watercolor.
Drew this in a meeting this morning, while some other people were answering some tough questions.
Just a quick doodle
My wife used the word last night, and even though I obviously am familiar with it, for some reason this is where my brain went. So I present the pecary-armadillo crossover- the pecadillo!
"We were two string beans / and you were too 19 / to be blowing away..."
With apologies to Edward Hopper and Native Americans. I've been thinking about making this for a long time. I sincerely hope I do not offend. I have always seen the bear as my "spirit animal". I grew up in New Mexico, and the Navajo see Bear as a healer, and I try to live up to that. "Nighthawks" has always been one of my favorite paintings because I love what Hopper captures--the strange solitude and community found in the darkness, particularly in those coffee-scented islands of sterile light. I never felt like the people in this diner are hiding or escaping from the night, but rather reaching out from it for a time, before they return to be swaddled in the comforting darkness. So I put "myself" in this painting as well as I am able at this time. Maybe I'll revisit this in the future.
My attempt at M.O.D.O.K. for the SketchADay prompt "Intelligence". Not a character that I even like, but it's what popped into my head.
A little cheat---this was my post on Sketch-a-day today. That multi-media paper has some cazy texture with a pencil. This was 6B!
Drawing Prompt Submission
From a photo I saw in the Guardian. The paint behaved a lot better, but these are all hard edges, so it's not any major accomplishment. I think my real "art" will have to be pen/pencil and digital. At lest right now. Watercolor takes so much focus that I can't think about expression--I'm just trying to get the paint to behave. I'll still be doodling in watercolor, though. Can't get better if I don't keep at it!
Still trying to get this moon thing down. Not sure if this is better or worse than the last one. It is definitely bigger.
A scene with nothing to create interest. No birds, no people, no buildings. But I managed a little non-catstrophic wet in wet. There was also a disaster with too much water at the top. Oh, and Artbeek paper sucks. 100% cotton my sweet Aunt Fanny.
This is the image I began before with the birds, which coincidentally is related to a line from a song (like this week's Drawing Prompt)! I had trouble working the acrylics in Rebelle 3, so I took my initial drawing over to good old CSP to paint. I'm using digital oil paint in CSP. The monochrome limitation is tough, but I'm giving it a try. I'm hoping to get it done this week.
Been watching the trial while away from home. Was sketching and thought I'd give this a go.
Maybe I'm just not ready for wet-in-wet yet....
An idea that has been in my head for close to 10 years, finally finding it's way to the world (for better or worse). [Digital pencil in Rebelle 3]
