Watercolour Faces

By in color, Gouache, heads, Jack's House of Cats, men, montreal, paintings, Portraits, self-promotion, sketches, watercolour

I’m just putting this up to see how big the graphic is….  Not too impressive, eh? It’s relaxing sitting on the front balcony doodling faces and the passing scene outside. People go by, things go by, as James Agee put it… Watercolour takes a lot of work to get back to one’s level. Haven’t sold […]

April Blog

By in ballpoint pen, color, Coloured Pencils, heads, montreal, paintings, pencil, ruttan's place, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

   Here we are, in my old-fashioned editor, putting up pictures from my sketchbook into my old-fashioned blog. I used to know how to write CSS, and make pretty styles for text and paragraphs. Not to mention the tags for these illustrations. Haven’t done much of that for a long while! I listened to a […]

Yelling People!

By in color, Coloured Pencils, heads, pencil, Portraits, sketches, watercolor, watercolour, women

I have to update my blog, template and all, to add new, modern things. I hope not a ton of pop-ups, etcetera. Still, this is a recent sketchbook page I actually worked on today! I’m setting up a Patreon link, and also have a cool illustration thing I’m going to share soon! Please stay tuned!

Old Me

By in Gouache, heads, men, self-promotion, sketches

Old old self-portrait. Mid 2000’s, I think.

Random Sketchbook Page

By in heads, Portraits, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

Like, from about 2018 or 19? I used to put these up when I did them. But got out of the habit, what with Facebook and all taking over from personal blogs…..

Lilac Paper

By in cats, heads, horses, pencil, sketches

Some drawings on this pretty paper my pal has pads of. The guy with a sword in his mouth is inspired by one of the stained glass images in the Sainte-Chapelle Church in Paris.

Eastern

By in color, Gouache, heads, paintings, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

I really hope that the little art shop in Chinatown near Clarke Street has survived. I like independent shops more than the big chains. Found cool stuff there, such as this book, and that brush. This is actually a face I did years ago, in black gouache, and just added colour to, today.

MLK

By in digital, heads, Portraits, women

This is a little late for Martin Luther King Day, but I drew him a couple of years ago, for an article for Coreopsis Journal of Myth & Theatre. It’s called It Can Happen Here, and it’s written by Ron Boyer.

Okay, some more….

By in heads, horses, pencil, Portraits, sketches

I decided to scan a few more. This is sort of an old book, from the beginning of the pandemic. These are $4.00 “Dollarama” sketchbooks, which are great, because they are cheap, and the paper likes watercolour. Brush pen, though, sometimes wicks a bit. These things claim, however to be “acid free paper,” which is […]

Various Pages

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, color, Coloured Pencils, heads, machines, paintings, pencil, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

It’s hard thinking of witty titles for these things. I’m putting up more pages. Not the stuff I did the other night when I couldn’t sleep. That was weird and also messy.
