Three Hundred and Sixty-Four!

The pattern and overlay really interested me after I did the first iteration of this image. This is a second version which offers its own special qualities. I really enjoy the color, it seems so soft and quiet which reminds me of the mood every day I see this. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Sixty!

I’ve been looking at windows recently, particularly those of old warehouses near my work. They always seem interesting at night/early morning because they are illuminated but not evenly. They are aged and show wear. Even the color that emits though the panes of glass changes from panel to panel. The whole image has nice a quiet vibe to it. It’s not nearly as dark as it should be but that is somewhat hard for me still. I’ll get there eventually. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Forty-Seven!

OK, I finally painted a human that doesn’t make me want to tear my eyeballs out. Major success story here! As usual her head is way too large for her body but she is old and sometimes old people have really big facial features you know ears, noses and so on. For some reason I was interested in painting a woman with layers of coats but on route to that image I kind of stumbled on this elderly lady hunched over her cane and felt inspired. Enjoy and see you next time.

Three Hundred And Twenty Six!

Back to the buildings… not for any particular reason but I was drawing a blank and well when I went to the gym I photographed a few buildings. I used them in this as well as a bunch of others of course. I don’t know why I like drawing these images but I like the piling of architecture and the wonky perspective. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred And Twenty Three!

Well it is very safe to say that this is a combination image. It started as one of those cityscapes but like a strange nautical version which I thought was horrible so naturally I draw a hand over it! I love the overlay of color and shape that is developing here as it had to develop as the result of drawing the hand. It was completely reactive which meant rather stress free! love it. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Fifteen

Moving through the landscape you travel between buildings and your constantly approaching things from a different angle. I love how the color just draws you in and you start to see elements that were not so obvious at first glance. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Six!

When you start drawing buildings and allow your pen to just go this is sometimes the result. Initially starting with the clock tower the buildings began to take on influence from Indian Culture. I am probably watching too many shows on Indian food as it is a new obsession. The color is mental but that was due to an orange highlighter. I went a bit crazy with it and naturally as soon as the brush hit those areas the orange leached into whatever color I tried to put near if forcing the image to have an unintended warm glow. Enjoy and see you next time.

Three Hundred and Four!

Another doodle started at work and finished at home. These small-scale city/landscapes are great sanity tools. The small details and disorienting angles suck you in and help you clear your head of the small issues currently clogging up your mind. I really tried to make this image confusing once I brought it home, utilizing color and washes to make it a bit harder to decipher which part belongs to where. I enjoy the play on whether it’s an image of a large house or if it’s a city-scape made of multiple buildings. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Three!

Highlighting stuff is such a fascination. It probably falls more to the accent of neon color but either way I love it! This image is far from a finished piece but like I mentioned in the challenge revision, I do not have time to get caught up in one image. I like the combination of structural and abstract, in particular the hive-like shape. Enjoy and see you next time.
