Smartphones and selfies – they’re everywhere!
This is more of the same style I’ve been using, a pencil drawing with washes and a bit of watercolor pencil thrown in.
This is the view from the back door of our son’s shore rental after a short but intense rainstorm came through, the same storm mentioned in my July 20th, 2017 post titled “Another Sunset”. What struck me was the contrast between the gray sky and the orange, alien monster-looking water tower. If I had any imagination I would have tried to make this an H.G. Wells-type illustration, with laser beams streaming from the tower and buildings catching on fire.
This is from a portrait workshop that I attend on occasion. I use this opportunity to try to hone my drawing skills, and also as a way to study value in preparation for color work. By grouping highlights, mid tones and shadows with each other, a composition becomes more cohesive, and thus easier to paint.
