Two Hundred and Ninety-Six!

These snow storms have forced my weekends to get divided into two categories; shoveling and painting. Alright, that may be a bit of an exaggeration but still I have had the opportunity to get some image done. The image below was absolutely not meant to be anything more than a sketch. I literally drew while making dinner hence the integration of cabbage and fry like shapes. Enjoy and see you next time.

One Hundred Eighty-One and Eighty-Two!


One Hundred Eighty-One…. First phase of a drawing.

One Hundred Eighty-Two… still in progress.

This drawing sits on my dining room table and I have just been slowly working on the image in the same style I was painting there for a while. Starting with a central image and building. The image always grows so naturally that it looks as if I knew what I wanted to do in the beginning, which is rarely the case! I’m going to start working on a painting soon which I was asked to do for a family member. I think it is going to be a great challenge because it needs to be quite large for the wall that it will be placed on. Also, I’m currently working on the other half of Liam’s tattoo but I refuse to show any images until its completed in on his arm. Opinions on tattoos are WAY too strong!

Day Seventy-Three!

An early morning drawing. Not too shabby considering it’s only 9:00am and it is done for the day. This is probably a blessing since I have to work 10 to 9 tonight…. kinda grossly long day. Tomorrow should be good though I have almost the entire day off to do what I want, which of course is completely planned out already! I liked the combination of shapes in this and would love to explore it a bit more. I would like to see the contrast bumped up a bit it seems a bit monotone to me, but then again I do love drama even if some of these graphite images are not really displaying that well! Enjoy and I’ll see you tomorrow!
