Sketch a day / 30 Paintings


Being a student is something I enjoy.
I had two opportunities to paint the Sequoia's.  Instruction by another artist.

The first one (last week) was done with the vanishing point off the top of the page.  



The second is from this morning.
With the vanishing point just off center.

I have at least 6 opportunities to teach this Class over the next month, so I'll be posting more like this.

Thirty days of Painting... Day 20?

Sometimes life gets in the way.  In our family, 5 out of 5 got hit with the Stomach Flu, and suffice it to say... No painting or sketching... Just rest and recovery around here.

I will catch up with my sketches... This being #14 of 366
And my painting for January 20th!!


Daffodils and Rose

A Watercolor study...

Today is the GOLDEN GLOBE sketch night.
I start off by sketching some of the red carpet arrivals. I take note of my personal favorite dresses. Then I reference the AP websites to find the reference photos.


Here are some of the sketches.  I started with pencil on paper... Then touched with loose acrylic.

Day 8 and 9

More accurate to say...

Sketches #8 and #9


Neither one is a finished drawing, but they are sketches and works towards a new instructional lesson.

So first the inspiration:


And now my sketches...


These Elephants will (as I play and paint) will hopefully represent the bright colors and variety of vivid pigments from India.

More to come...
