Sketches

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, color, Coloured Pencils, men, pen and ink, sketches, watercolour, women

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

Digital Portrait

By in color, digital, heads, men

Feeling much more confident about my digital painting skills. As always, this is an ongoing journey. Not perfect. Below is the reference photo. I actually feel happier just making things up, but the snap does give you a better idea of the colours. I’m not really a fan of the “super-realistic” look. Would rather have […]

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 […]

Men at Work

By in machines, men, montreal, pen and ink, pencil, ruttan's place, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

One woman, too. They’ve been tearing up the schoolyard across the street from me. I’m being driven a little snakey by the roaring of trucks, the constant beep-beep-beep, and the dust. So, I’m consoling myself by drawing the occasional picture of things. They’ll be here all August, so there is probably more to come.

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 […]

Youtube Guys

By in color, heads, men, paintings, watercolor, watercolour

Painted these guys when I was up late last night, watching Youtube. Very tired now, but I worked hard today and solved some problems. So, I’m happy. I don’t think the cats are happy, but maybe they’ll manage.

Watercolour Man

By in color, men, paintings, watercolor, watercolour

Just something I found on the computer; looked cool.

Computer-Painted Characters

By in color, digital, heads, men, paintings, women

My computer-painted characters are quicker and more satisfying to draw. I had to reach back into my experience mixing acrylic paints to think of the right kinds of shadows. Still, I feel more confident that I can paint in a pleasant way any subject that occurs to me. Backgrounds and bodies soon to come.

Watercolour Pencils, and other Watercolour-y and Pencil-ly things.

By in black and white, color, Coloured Pencils, heads, men, montreal, sketches, watercolor, watercolour, women

A lot of little drawings here, so I’m trying a new feature on WordPress (new to me, anyhow). A “Gallery.” Enjoy! Actually, it’s kind of cool, having the random order. Wish there was a function for captions, however!

Morning Pencil Faces

By in black and white, men, pencil, sketches, women

In kind of a funk at the moment because of beginning of the month, raining all day blues. Drawing silly faces helps sublimate some of that. These are scanned, and I may try to do something with them.

Crime Faces, Etc.

By in black and white, cats, men, pencil, sketches

Drawing some big things in pencil. Too big for the scanner, so I took some snaps! I used hair spray as fixative. It’s fruit-scented, so not as nasty (or expensive) as standard fixative, but you get tired of the smell after a while anyhow. Inspired a little by an art show I saw. Will post […]

Watercolour Suit Man

By in men, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

Watching this Youtube of a TV show featuring men throwing paint onto a giant piece of paper inspired me to paint this:

Young Alec Guinness

Apparently it was his birthday yesterday.

Shatner

By in black and white, heads, men, pencil

The older, goofier William Shatner actually reminds me a bit of my dad. I’ll have to draw him, sometime. He actually rode in an elevator with Shatner and Brooke Shields, once, at the Banff Springs Hotel.
