By in digital, sketches

A doodle I made answering @inkyelbows challenge [link here] You can see other responses via the hashtag #2018doodle . Thought I should have it here in my blog. Don’t know why I thought of Star Wars. Guess it’s the recent movie, which I haven’t seen.

Red paint and pencil, for some reason. I’ve been watching too many videogame review videos. Trying to figure out what kids like these days.

Sketchbook People

By in heads, pencil, Portraits, sketches

  People in the real world fly by, and it’s hard to catch them. So one uses imagination, and skills gained by practice to capture them.

By in black and white, color, heads, horses, men, pen and ink, pencil, Portraits, sketches, watercolor, watercolour, women

This is sort of a test, in that I’m trying to post something via photos I took with the iPad. Sadly, there are a few things I haven’t figured out, but this is good enough for the time being.

Mount Royal Sketches

By in color, montreal, paintings, parks, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

Yesterday, I went to a friend’s place just over Mount Royal, Not far from the Côte-des-Neiges Cemetery gates. And it was such a nice day I sketched this elaborate monument just inside the gates.

Colour Schemes

By in color, digital, sketches

This morning I doodled four very tiny (one by two inch) rectangles on my computer, just trying different colours, and seeing how they go together. One nice thing about the computer is that it has an infinite colour palette. I’m going to try this again, looking at some interesting old paintings in books, or on […]
