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.

She on the other hand, is wholly digital. Next time, maybe: scenery!

In the sketchbook.

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

My sketchbook is a bit like my written journal. I sit down with it, with no idea of what I’m about to write (or draw). Kind of therapy, I suppose, or like practicing scales if you were playing the piano. The bottom corner is a gentleman I saw walking by on the street. Above was […]

Space Flyer

By in color, digital, sketches, women

Since the drawings I did for “Rank the Prank” are part of the broadcast, and give away surprises in the show, I’m beavering away at creating similar things which show off how I’ve advanced with the digital painting thing. This is always hard because I’m never certain about my work. Also, it’s been a bit […]

Further Sketchbookery.

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, color, pen and ink, pencil, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

I need to find a better title for these sorts of posts, because the headings are getting a little repetitive. Anyhow, I bought a new sketchbook, and here are some things I’ve been drawing in it, recently. Faces, science-fictiony things like monsters and spaceships. I’ve been working on work a lot, and can’t show those […]

Digital Dalliance

By in color, digital, heads, women

I hope I’m not wasting my time trying to paint digitally. My line, which I think looks nice enough in watercolour or little pen and ink drawings, to me doesn’t look so appealing in digital. Still, this post gives me hope. It’s from a “famous” digital artist, discussing how her drawing has improved over the […]

Various Sketchbook Pages

By in color, heads, horses, men, pencil, sketches, watercolor, watercolour, women

Various items from the sketchbook. I’m trying to work out of my comfort zone. The last two are more like what I usually enjoy doing. I love horses. Worked at a horse farm for one summer. Trying here for more “frosty colours, rather than the warm tones I often use. I’ve got better ideas about […]

Tiny Pict-chas

By in ballpoint pen, cats, color, dogs, heads, paintings, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

More from the sketchbook. “Tiny pict-chas,” as my sis used to refer to them, when she wanted to get my goat. I enjoy the line made when the black roller pen gets wet, and mixes a little with the colour.
