Short Pencil

By in Art Criticism, color, Gouache, ruttan's place, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

I don’t actually prefer a short pencil, I just get a little hysterical when the lead breaks off inside the pencil when I’m trying to sharpen it. I hate that.

Magical Neon

By in ballpoint pen, color, pen and ink, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

This is a page I drew this summer with the help of magical neon gel pens I collected at the depanneur over the weeks, at a dollar a pop. I still haven’t figured out how to incorporate them into serious drawings (if that’s what I do), or know if they are archival quality.

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. Got to the other side of the “mountain.” That’s the part I call the “front” because it faces what used to […]

Notebook Computer

By in color, Coloured Pencils, digital, Portraits, sketches, watercolor, watercolour, women

My little notebook computer is great. But it’s a little silly to use, sometimes, as this guy demonstrates. He’s drawn in melty watercolour pencils and (I didn’t realise it at the time), melty black/purple roller pen. This is a Regency little girl, inspired by Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. Of course, the real little girl […]

Star Wars, etc.

By in black and white, color, heads, paintings, Portraits, sketches, watercolor, watercolour, women
