Continuing off from last week's post and the above picture; the next folk song I looked at was O Waly Waly. In answer to the question of what the dude is doing, he is closer to emoting about an unfaithful and false love, leaning against an Oak tree which ends up breaking under him. This … Continue reading Song Drawings Pt. 2
Behold! Overly aesthetic supplies. Now onward to the art. The piece I worked on this past week is based on the study drawing I made in the previous post. The image on the right is a detail of the under-drawing on Arches paper 24x36". Decided against using text since it would make a swirly, busy … Continue reading Song Drawings Pt.1
Distracted by shafts of light on the floor and walls once again. The Vermeer print did just happen to be right there though, adding some sort of nod to domestic scenes throughout the history of art. Light and shadows intermingling with yet another scene of quiet domesticity. Might be missing something in the bottom right … Continue reading Light, Ideas, and Domestic Scenes
And so...two weeks later than anticipated. I return once again because time and wifi access at the same time have continued to allude me. The muffins above happened, sadly they were a mix but the strudel on top was lovely. Not much art making has happened, however, I have been planning things, reading, and researching … Continue reading After two weeks being everywhere
I started this doodle after looking at Edward Gorey's work. Particularly in his use of hatching since that's my go-to technique when drawing. I also needed to draw something that wasn't associated with any project or for anything/one in particular. The first image was outlined with a black Pilot G-2 07 but I filled in … Continue reading Back to the art.
After missing my post last week it feels like forever since I've written anything here. The past week or so has been quite eventful... Found a plant on a windowsill. Photoshot in downtown Johnson City, TN. Made pancakes. Photoshoot at the VA campus in Johnson City, TN. Cleaned a creek after some heavy rainfall and … Continue reading I have returned!
To start, I felt I should share this bizarre hallway service entrance that has been left open for the past few days near my girlfriend's apartment. It's like the beginning of a horror story. Sadly now I realize I would be that adventurous one who wants to explore the creepy hallway at the resistance of … Continue reading An interest in -isms
Needing support for my work crept up on me in a weird way. I always thought I could make art just fine with some support, but never fully realized how necessary it was until recently. Following a profession and life through art has been a strange but wonderful thing to embark upon. On the one … Continue reading Support of Creativity
More and more I find myself using the red and orange watercolor study as a backdrop for other work for posting. It's wonderfully calming looking up at it in the middle of other works. The piece in the above photo, however, has been mildly frustrating. The paper was gessoed before I got it and while … Continue reading This and That
Behind the scenes of my last post. Now it's back to more drawing related items! I feel the smaller studies and pieces are at a state of completion I'm happy with, now I'm moving on to the larger piece and bringing out some of the line-work that was faded after watercolor was added. The initial … Continue reading A most scribbly manner
