Painted Squares

Taped off a few big rectangles in the sketch book, and painted them with watercolours. Will try to vary the palettes a little more next time.

Darn. So much more to share. I used to post everything I drew/created! Oh well, here’s this guy.

Page of Draw-rings

By in color, Coloured Pencils, pencil, sketches

I used to post here once a day. Now I’m guilty of drawing many drawings, even ones I think of as good ones, and not putting them up. Forgive me!

Colour Schemes

By in color, digital, sketches

This morning I doodled four very tiny (one by two inch) rectangles on my computer, just trying different colours, and seeing how they go together. One nice thing about the computer is that it has an infinite colour palette. I’m going to try this again, looking at some interesting old paintings in books, or on […]

He’s drawn in melty watercolour pencils and (I didn’t realise it at the time), melty black/purple roller pen. This is a Regency little girl, inspired by Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. Of course, the real little girl […]

Star Wars, etc.

By in black and white, color, heads, paintings, Portraits, sketches, watercolor, watercolour, women

Posting various sketches I’ve been doing. Mainly to do with the new “Star Wars” movie, which I finally saw, and “Emma” by Jane Austen. Star Wars had some pleasant new characters, but it was basically a rehash of the same old plot. I mean where did they find the time and materials to build a […]

Doot Doot

By in color, digital, heads

Old Fashioned Stuff

By in color, Coloured Pencils, pencil, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

The lighting is nicer here, and gives a better image. These are some drawings I did while watching (or thinking of) old things. Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, and the movie Barry Lyndon. Watercolour pencils.
