Pencil Portraits

By in heads, pencil, Portraits, sketches

I’m actually not fond of drawing from photos, because to me it feels too limiting. However, it’s a good way to improve the practice, and see some new aspects of anatomy, rather than simply drawing things which have worked for me before. Here, I’ve been looking at heads as shapes in space, made up of […]

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.

Grumpy Writer

By in digital, men, pencil, Portraits, sketches

And a lazy digital treatment. I’m learning more tricks, but am finding I get my best results when starting with a pencil drawing and scanning it in. I can draw with the stylus, but it takes a lot more time. The thing really doesn’t like obeying what your hand wants it to do. Maybe if […]

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 […]

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 […]

Two-Two-Two-Oh, rue Parthanais

By in black and white, montreal, pencil, sketches

Drat, forgot the little fruit juice bottle full of water, so this is pencil only. This is the artists’ co-op on Parthenais street. Someone trusted me enough to let me watch their bike as I sketched this. Glad they weren’t away for too long.
