Day 189: Pointy Chicken

March 29, 2015

Laughing now thinking of this name but it’s all that I could think of when I looked at it here. What would you name it instead? …just a bunch of little dots here.

Day 188: Baby Buddha

March 29, 2015

I talked with this model a bit during the session today. He was just the nicest and most gentle person. A real loving soul. Wouldn’t have guessed that either by how he held himself. As I don’t practice drawing guys as much, I think I’m finally getting a bit better now. What do you think?

Day 187: Eating Purple

March 26, 2015

Twisted. Wincing. This figures anguishes and turns at the same time. I appreciate the colors used here as well to convey this emotion. Hope that you enjoy. Let me know if you are interested in a custom commission. It would be my honor.

Day 186: Opportunity

March 25, 2015

I wasn’t crazy about the pose from the model here so just decided to paint the gal, Jane, here who was sitting right beside me. Doesn’t do her justice so I’m looking forward to doing another one.

Day 185: Free Spirit

March 24, 2015

A strong current of spirituality comes to me when reflecting back on this piece. The opposing hands and use of color really evokes a strong feeling here for me. I’ve never really been a religious person but feel connected for whatever that it is worth out on the bike, lost with the clouds and views. […]

Day 184: Missing

March 23, 2015

An artist friend of mine Jane pointed out either just concentrating on the torso solely or the entire figure might have a better impact. Now at 3/4 with part of a leg, it feels as if it’s missing. So, lesson learned in prep for laying out the setup. Do you agree with Jane’s assessment?

Day 183: Maverick

March 22, 2015

The colors used here remind me of the green plaid upholstery in our monster Maverick growing up as a kid in North Raleigh. I’m not sure if that was the one but there one old beater car we had to bang on the engine and jiggle some wires to get it started sometimes. So, not […]

Day 181: Tough Mudder

March 19, 2015

This was one tough mudder fudder. Really got frustrated with the curves in the blanket and everything. Now that I’ve got this style and starting to get comfy with it, you throw in something else new. GRRRRRRR. Always humbling to be reminded that there is ALWAYS more, to drawing, art, entrepreneur, cycling, friend, father-hood, …and […]

Day 180: Daybreak

March 18, 2015

The first little sliver of light, through the trees…this is what I’m thinking now reflecting on this piece. I really got in there and did some good detail work and ultimately proud of how it turned out. Hope you do too. Let me know how this sketch makes you feel in the comments below.
