Gesture in Figure Drawing

Whether I simplify my skeleton drawings or not, I always try to keep gesture in mind. These are practice drawings that I have made to try to capture angle, tilt, and thrust of the human body in three dimensional space. I am not that interested in going for accuracy of the anatomy at this point as you can see on the scapula bones that are showing through the ribs on the bottom drawing. I have used the app called Skelly that you can obtain from Proko. The middle drawing is done purely from imagination and purposely simplified.

Digital Painting

Always a new experiment:


For some reason I have a tendency towards working or playing with my art from the vantage point of an experiment. I am not out to prove anything; I just enjoy "what iffing." And so, I offer you my latest "what if" using (learning) a new program (new to me) called Procreate.

CAST PAINTING

I just completed taking a class from Andrew Van DeGoede at the Coppini Academy. This was an extension of the cast drawing class that I took last semester and we completed a limited palette painting.

Graduation Gift For My Niece

My niece wanted one of my paintings for her graduation.

My niece wanted one of my paintings for her graduation, and so I decided to give her a continuation of: A 1940's Love Story (see December 31, 2016 post for the graphite collage study). Watercolor - on Arches paper - I had two separate photos that I had to work from, and I had to make up a shadow for my mother. Since today is Memorial Day, it seems like a good time to share this.
