Wild Experiment in Acrylics

Sheltering in place

This is what happens on about day seventeen of sheltering in place! You begin to make up your own outdoors and your own wild spring flowers!

On days 18 and 19, you begin to resort to a self-portrait challenge! More on that later.

And when you keep walking past your painting and seeing things in it that are bothering you. Now I see some shapes in the background that I liked better in the earlier version.

I hope to finish this experiment someday.

Lately, I have been working in my sketchbooks. This is my latest drawing that I did in pastels of a photo that I took this past Thanksgiving week at a restaurant called Mi Familia in San Antonio.

January 2020

Winter can tend to be a good time to simply experiment with your art. I decided to take one particular pose and experiment using Zen Doodle designs in order to see how strongly design sets the tone of a drawing.

Of course I knew ahead of time that design has a very strong influence, but oftentimes seeing is really believing.

I personally like the softness of the second pose, but what if denoting strength was your objective?

What Comes After Inktober

What comes after Inktober?

Why the answer to that would be Thanksgiving, of course! In the meantime, I have taken some inspiration from Inktober and added it to the days of preparation for the upcoming holidays. Hope everyone is having an enjoyable end of the year, and a peaceful, non-stressful holiday season.

A few drawings I have done in my sketchbook for the past few weeks.

Portrait Drawing

October 29, 2019

Love taking this class. Tony is very patient with his students and helps them to develop their own style. He helps them figure out what is working in a painting or drawing, and what adjustments they might want to make to move forward in their art.
