­ A Life Drawing

Wednesday, January 16th, 2008

Female portrait – for practice – charcoal on newsprint One of my goals this year was to take a life drawing class – working from a live model. I’ve drawn from models on some other occasions but i was never close enough to get a good look at the head, and the models were nude [...]

­ Minerva Getty

Wednesday, April 4th, 2007

Minerva – 9 x 12 graphite drawing on pastel paper – after Nollekens Yesterday I had the opportunity to return to the Hillside Getty in Sepulveda Pass for a little drawing practice. I just had time for two drawings this time – This first was this Minerva, the Roman equivalent of Athena, goddess of war. [...]

Octavia at the Getty

Tuesday, March 13th, 2007

Today was a not so terrific day. I’m still getting over the tonsillitis/flu or whatever is camping in my throat and making me miserable – and I’m probably going to have to go see the doc about it tomorrow. It’s been almost a week and I’m just plain tired of it and going around whispering. [...]

Bronze Nude – Getty

Tuesday, February 20th, 2007

Torso after Maillol – 9 x 12 charcoal on toned paper In the sculpture garden of the West Pavilion are several Maillol bronze nudes, two of which I had time to draw. In many ways this was more challenging than the interior marble sculptures because of the dazzling bright sunlight and the dark reflectivity of [...]

Juno – Daily Drawing

Sunday, February 18th, 2007

“Juno” 9 x 12 drawing on toned paper – charcoal and white chalk Here’s another in my figure drawing expedition from Friday at the Getty. This is also based on a work by Joseph Nollekens was drawn from the same low sitting angle as yesterday’s Venus. Because this statue was much closer to me, I [...]

Goddess – Daily Drawing

Saturday, February 17th, 2007

“Venus after sculpture by Joseph Nollekens” – 9 x 12 charcoal and chalk on paper Today’s daily painting is actually a drawing done yesterday in one of the galleries at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles – the one in the Sepulveda pass, not the villa. This is another view of Venus a marble by [...]

Something winged this way comes

Wednesday, November 1st, 2006

I am frustrated today because my Yahoo email is bouncing and every reactivation request I’ve put in is not working. I get error messages back that reassure me that Yahoo is working hard to upgrade its sites to serve me better and if I don’t hear anything after 4 hrs to get updates here (and [...]

Fall guys

Monday, October 23rd, 2006

“Fall Guys” 6″ x 6″ pastel on paper. A good art buddy brought me this lil punkin last week when she came over to visit, and I thought it was so cute i paired it with a little striped gourd that I had hanging around. It has a Mutt and Jeff quality that I like [...]

Baby elephant walk

Thursday, July 13th, 2006

At the Wild Animal Park in San Diego we road a tram around a wide open savannah styled area, and at one point passed by the elephant territory where this baby was tossing hay into his mouth. Due to a tram breakdown in front of us we paused for a little while there, but not [...]

Hollywood Nights

Wednesday, July 12th, 2006

At the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Avenue, there’s a big shopping complex where jazz concerts are held on warm summer evenings. You can buy a glass of wine and listen to great music, and then stroll around the shops. I didn’t draw it in this view, but the whole center court has a [...]
