Sketch Dump#2

More new work from this month. The first image on the left is after an Andrew Wyeth drybrush entitled "Johnny Lynch". The woman on the right is from The middle images are an acrylic painting of a lion. I used to think that I just didn't paint very well with acrylic, but this painting is done on a pre-gessoed hardboard. It's one of my best acrylics, I think. Image courtesy of The third images-the one on the left is a self-portrait. The hands on the right are from The first and third group of images is completed using a black ballpoint pen. The last images are also taken from and are completed using rapidograph pens 4x0, 00, and 2 sizes.

Sketch Dump-More New Work

Here's a bunch more new work. Also on the previous post, I wanted to mention that the autumn forest image was taken from the reference image library of
The first image of the two boys is completed with watersoluble graphite. Images courtesy of The second images-the woman sleeping on the left is my partner, and is drawn from observation. The cityscape on the right is drawn from one of my personal photos of New Orleans, post Katrina. The man in the middle is based off an Andrew Wyeth drybrush called "The Finn". It is pen and ink using 4X0, 00, and 2 sized rapidographs. And the final images are also from

New Work-Sorry it's been so long.

Hi everyone. I'm sorry it's been so long that I've posted anything. Life gets in the way sometimes. However, I have been very busy drawing and sketching, and I have plenty of work to post.
The first two are of a pen and ink drawing that I'm doing. It's being done with rapidographs and acrylic ink. It's taking me forever, but it's worth it in my estimation.
The second is of a sratchboard and acrylic painting. It's my homemade version of scratchboard, which didn't work out too well, hence the acrylic background to the cat. But it was a learning experience. I took a gesso coated hardboard panel and covered it with ink. The ink hardened too much the second day to scratch through very well. I colored the cat with acrylic ink. I gave this one to my mother as a gift, since it's a portriat of her cat Precious.
