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
Something different from the usual drawings I post on here. I believe these were taken on the first day of Spring after my girlfriend and I stopped by The Coffee Corner in Jonesborough, TN.

Continuing the "Controlled Chaos" post from Monday, the painting/drawing at the top is the basic idea for the final piece. I'm wanting more flow and chaos with the materials to juxtapose the grid-like stair patterns however, I've been practicing pouring water onto different papers with added pigment and ink before jumping to the good water … Continue reading Landscape Study
