This week I was able to finally get out and do another quick in situ water color. It was a mad dash to get as much done before a thunder storm both changed the light and let out a mighty downpour. But in the end everything came out alright 😮
A nice odd sketch I did which will come in a 2nd part that is digitally colored.
A quick urban sketch of a greek restaurant that had a great interior paired up with a screen grab from Daredevil (so boss).
And finally a little bit of old school (if you can say that) of some imaginative drawings that started off fueled by a photograph (upper right corner) that I sketched.
Did a few more things this week to fill the art barrel. First up an in situ watercolor that turned out “ok.” Definitely need a lot more practice with that.
Next up – lots of outdoor drawings both with my sketch group and at the soccer fields.
And finally a little sketch at a local sushi place.
A little slower approach this week with some observational studies as well as some weird creatures built off of shapes.
Also, a little bit more work on the dragon.
Ok so part 2 of this post has a lot of stuff that happened over both this past week and a few things that I wanted to just put up because they were ideas to get “out there.” Sometimes when you are creating something, the image that leaps out of your mind either works or it doesn’t really work. Either way the important thing to do is to do it. Later on down the line you never know when your mind will come back to that image, and though it may not work at the time of creation, you use that as a source to create a newer better image. So without further ado…
A little more odd sketchy dragon stuff.
Some good old bushes, flowers, and trees from life.
A mix of two different sessions from life.
A great little gesture session of tai chi from life.
Part 2 of said tai chi.
More thinking on tattoos and a quick restaurant sketch.
More tattoo finalizing…I think.
Odd landscape quickie.
Enter…the tomb of fogggggg!
Feeling out the rough shading. Yes, very rough 😐
Kinda of a part 1 post for this week as I do have some other things cooking from last week. My son made another dragon of which he named Fire Wyrm…so I am taking his concept and bringing it up a notch. Initial stages of course right now.
