The New Hampshire Trip…. Images 114-120



Bellow are the images created while away in New Hampshire. The trip was a great experience and although I had intended them to be drawings from life, once I arrived up there I had no real need for direct inspiration. I was inspired already. All of the images are combinations of graphite, charcoal and watercolor and are expressions of space and shape. This is the first post in which I am mass posting images and therefore there are not many close-ups of sections. If you miss that aspect I am more than happy to include them as well. Thanks for looking and Enjoy!

Images One Hundred and Fourteen, Fifteen, and Sixteen.

They are not meant to be a triptych although they do appear that way due to color, consistent size and imagery. Primarily photographing these individually was crazy long and drove me nuts.

One Hundred and Seventeen.

These image has a pink tint to it but that is not actually part of the image.

One Hundred and Eighteen.

One Hundred and Nineteen.

One Hundred and Twenty.

Day One Hundred and Ten!

Today was a great art day, Technically I had the day off minus a short-lived meeting this morning. It was great really I had the opportunity to do loads of things that I have meaning to work on including a wall painting at the house. I finally started. I painted the first of many parts to a whole. It is completely impulsive with almost no planning which I love and luckily Mama dukes doesn’t mind a bit. Anyway, while waiting for layers of paint to dry I began a series of low stress very free wash drawings and this was the first one that I completed. These types of images always have such a freedom to them. Mistakes are completely acceptable and when things work out just right its like nature intended it to, since I barely think when I get into these. Anyway, Enjoy and I will see you tomorrow!

Day One Hundred and Nine!

I debated on whether to add more to this or not, but I have come to the conclusion that I will just do a second version that can be developed a bit more. The open spaces and light washes are something that I really enjoy. Time to head to the beach though… see you tomorrow!

One Hundred and Eight!


I’ve been doing a series of images that are very carefree and I like what happens with that. The marks seem less planned and it is a completely reactive method once the initial wash is laid down. It is fun to see the layers develop after a while. Enjoy and see you tomorrow!

Day One Hundred and Seven!

It’s funny this image drove me crazy when I was working on it, but seeing the image of it on-screen makes me like it better. This piece was all about layers, laying down one level and building off of that. Really just playing with the way that the shapes intertwine. Enjoy and see you tomorrow!

One Hundred and Six!


It is quite a small image but I loved working on it. Maybe it makes more sense to work smaller when your on a very tight deadline. See you tomorrow!
