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 […]

Notebook Computer

By in color, Coloured Pencils, digital, Portraits, sketches, watercolor, watercolour, women

My little notebook computer is great. But it’s a little silly to use, sometimes, as this guy demonstrates. 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

Feeling uninspired, which might be clear from this image. But at least my digital technique is getting better. Things seem to go up and down. I should really be doing watercolours, but I need better self-motivation.

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.

This is a belated scan of a birthday card I made for a friend, featuring various cats.

Blondes

By in color, digital

I’m probably being very boring banging on about digital painting. The drawing just isn’t quite there when I draw things right on the computer rather than scanning-in drawings done in pencil and then coloured here. But I’ve been working hard on these sorts of things, so I may as well share them. Any opinions or […]

Remember the Days In the Old Schoolyard

By in color, montreal, paintings, ruttan's place, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

Kids in the schoolyard facing my balcony are playing in the leaves. I couldn’t resist sketching them. They move too fast, so this is mainly imagination, but I hope I’ve captured a hint of the colours and fun.
