Carved Dragon

Monday, January 30th, 2006

Today’s piece of artwork is a soft block carving which has been printed then scanned into Photoshop and colorized using a variety of layers, brushes and enhancement tools including such different channel modes as Color, Darken, Lighten, Multiply. It’s a different version of the same dragon (scroll down) which I painted in my Moleskine last [...]

Gung Hay Fat Choy

Friday, January 27th, 2006

Ripley wishes you a Happy (Chinese lunar) New Year, it’s the year of the dog. Which is pretty much every year, around here. My friend Armand Frasco asked me if I might be doing a drawing in my Moleskine for the annual event and I told him that I most likely would. So if you [...]

Ripley in my new cahier Moleskine

Tuesday, January 24th, 2006

This afternoon Ripley was sleeping so soundly on the floor of my office that I thought I could probably get a quick drawing of her done before she stirred. She did move her paws around but thankfully kept her head steady most of the time. This was drawn with the water soluble Kuretake brush pen, [...]

Dogginess

Sunday, January 22nd, 2006

I know, I said I was going to do something botanical. And then I went and painted something dogical. Just don’t tell Ripley that I drew someone else. She will be so jealous. If I go to a friend’s house and play with their dog she is ALL OVER me with questions when I come [...]

Botanical Guild Meeting

Saturday, January 21st, 2006

I just got back from a meeting of the So. Calif. Guild of Botanical Artists, which is held every three months in and around the southland area. What an incredibly nice (and talented) group of people! I am still evaluating whether or not I have room in my life for another membership or commitment, but [...]

Fast sketching pays off

Friday, January 20th, 2006

And they say that being a sketcher has no practical application … Caricaturist draws picture of the man who mugged him

Photo Friday – Pink

Friday, January 20th, 2006

Click to enlarge I don’t usually participate in Photo Friday, but this week’s theme of “pink” fit with a picture I already had on hand, taken in 2004. I can hardly wait until these lovelies bloom again this year. It is a tulip magnolia and I found this one growing at a house in Pasadena. [...]

Tracy Sugarman, WW2 veteran artist

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

World War II artist: Tracy Sugarman If you’re like me, there’s nothing more interesting than peeking inside someone else’s journal or travel diary to see life through their eyes at a particular time and place. That’s why I’ve been getting so much enjoyment from Tracy Sugarman’s drawings and watercolors from the Library of Congress “Experiencing [...]

Who’s Your Daddy? – Moleskine

Friday, January 13th, 2006

First you saw her, earlier this week, drawn with the Derwent drawing pencils …. (scroll down) Then you saw him, painted on watercolor paper …. Now we’ve got them, in my Moleskine, using a more subdued palette of watercolors and a different, looser approach to the brushwork, given the slick nature of the Moleskine sketchbook [...]

Little Kids

Wednesday, January 11th, 2006

Another watercolor exploration painted from two different source pictures, which I shot. Although the little girl was very lively, she was quite careful with the small animals. The scene reminded me of the gentleness we are all born with, and which always lies within us, no matter how old we may be. The actual size [...]
