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.

Sketchbook People

From my second-floor deck. Also, the nearby dog run.

Eccentric Paintings of People and Pets

By in cats, color, dogs, paintings, parks, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

I’m not fond of the new way Flickr has of embedding one’s graphics. I just want you to be able to see the one image, not scroll along to a lot of others. Generally, I’ve been embedding them into the website, which is probably a better solution, but I worry about all those graphics piling […]

Inspired by George Stubbs

By in dogs, horses, sketches, watercolor

George Stubbs is one of my favourite painters. Not just because of his horses and dogs, (though those are great, too), but his wonderful, very sober, 18th-century people.

Back to Watercolour

By in color, dogs, horses, men, sketches, watercolour, women

Feels so relaxing painting in watercolours after all this digital staring into the screen thing. I also enjoy painting animals and backgrounds, not to mention plants. So maybe that means some real painting at last. It’s hard to find time for that, though. This sketching I do is mainly therapeutic. Beats punching a wall and […]

More Heads, and Trees

By in black and white, cats, color, dogs, heads, men, pen and ink, ruttan's place, sketches, women

I’m getting back into the thing of posting what I drew lately, as long as it’s not too dreadful. It’s been hard for me lately, because I’ve been trying new things, and am not totally comfortable with them. Or even convinced that I should be trying them and not doing things more useful. But life […]

Another New Sketchbook

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, cats, dogs, men, sketches, women

That’s about the size of it. This one is cheaper, and fits not too badly into the scanner. I’ve been away drawing things, so I thought I may as well put up everything I’ve been doing until now in one blow. These were drawn with a pilot frixion gel pen, which has the virtue of […]

Heroes and Ordinary People

By in dogs, men, watercolour, women

In the brush drawing, I’m imagining Wonder Woman’s frumpier, older cousin. I always think that these glamourous types have relatives who are less impressive, and jealous of them. This is Cyrano de Bergerac. In one of his works, he built himself a pair of wings, and flew to the moon. Gotta love that Cyrano! Then, […]

Dudes

By in dogs, men, sketches, watercolour

Recently painted a lot of dudes, or guys, or what have you. Faces seem to work better if I leave more white in them, but as usual, it’s all experimentation. The more I work on things, the better stuff gets. But if I go away from it, I seem to lose the touch, and have […]

Yellow Dog

By in dogs, sketches, watercolour

Painted a lot of things. Haven’t posted many yet. Maybe I’ll try something new and post only GOOD drawings. That would be a switch.

Cats and Dogs

By in cats, dogs, sketches, watercolour

I’ve scanned a lot of pictures I’ve been painting the last while, and am going to put them up on the blog step by step, maybe. That’s so I can post stuff every day! Or, I might put them up all at once. Who knows?

Dog and Woman, and Sad Daisy Mae

By in dogs, watercolour, women

Excuse the long title. I’m using SEO (Search Engine Optimization) to bring up my blog visit stats! (As if that will help).
