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.

Two Faces

By in Coloured Pencils, heads, pencil, Portraits, sketches

I guess using the flash on the little camera makes these things look too light.

Further Sketchy Oddness

By in black and white, color, Coloured Pencils, dinosaurs, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

That strange animal was inspired by a person on a palaeontological art website who thought that sauropod dinosaurs might have had trunks. Probably not, but the idea led to an interesting-looking beast.

Colour Combinations

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

I’m trying out different colour combinations to see if anything twigs my interest. I have to admit that the yellow ochre underpainting thing is still my favourite, but I don’t want to use it as a crutch. Still, light in these paintings seems to be yellow. These aren’t actually “Wedgewood thumbnail roughs,” (that’s a old […]

Hands

By in black and white, Coloured Pencils, pencil, Portraits, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

Trying to do more “House of Cats” pictures, but I’m lacking inspiration. So I went to youtube and watched watercolour technique videos. People’s hands are fascinating, but in these videos you rarely see the faces. So, I drew the hands in watercolour pencil, and then drew the owners’ faces as I imagined them. [link] [link] […]

New Animation Studio

By in color, Coloured Pencils, heads, men, montreal, pencil, Portraits, self-promotion, sketches

Thrilled by the news that a new animation studio is opening up in Montreal (a side-effect, I think, of the low dollar making it more tempting for foreign operations to invest here. Not to mention the high number of talented artistic types in this city). In honour of that fact, I’ve done this amazing, highly-detailed […]

Some new sketches. I’m always drawing, but not been putting everything up, even though I used to do that.

Pilgrims and Spies

By in cats, color, Coloured Pencils, heads, men, paintings, pencil, ruttan's place, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

Morning sketches, to clear my head, and chase away the nightly terrors. I’m on my front balcony, the sun just peeping over the buildings and trees. These are just things I’ve done yesterday and today. The usual things I’ve seen, either real or on TV, and faces, of course. Out of my head, and from […]

Dollarama Book

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

Many watercolour types have to spend a lot on sketchbooks, with the proper paper and all. I found these black spiral-bound books at Dollarama, and they’re pretty good for watercolour. I worry about the paper, since it probably isn’t acid-free. Also, it tends to break free from the perforations along the side rather easily. But […]

Landscapes

By in color, Coloured Pencils, paintings, sketches, watercolour

I drew 4 tiny landscapes with watercolour pencils, basically as quickly as I could, without thinking about them. This I call the “I can do nothing wrong” style of painting, because I tell myself that as I do it.

Sketchbook Pages

By in color, Coloured Pencils, sketches

Here are a bunch of images from my sketchbook recently. In gouache, coloured (and not) pencil.
