I am a painter working in pastels, with some oils, and acrylics. I sketch in pen and ink. As an artist my original paintings are influenced from living in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Bolivia, Peru and Chile, and travels throughout much of Canada and all our fifty States.
This is my spot for posting paintings and sketches, to muse mostly about art, life and a little about UT Baseball.
Don't forget to scroll down, I posted my WIP of the pastel painting.
Time flies when you are having fun and I mean that sincerely, not an old cliché. We are usually away from home this time of year to get out of the heat. This year found us here and we have been enjoying our home, sitting on the porch, visiting family and friends. Not bad.
Today is already the last day for Scavenger Hunt 323. I sketched on the porch Thursday morning with my regular sketchbook and a Micron 01 pen.
Number 3, my hand sketching - We did that some years ago. I will put the old sketch below.
Number 4, cylinder
Number 5, someone seated
Number 6, black - Gene’s shoes and the little bench
I did this sketch and made some sketchbooks for gifts and to sell with the image.
I also ran across this one. Very hurried at an airport it seems.
We sketch hands quite often on the Hunts. It is good for practice on perspective from life. Your models are always handy. I am hosting the next Hunt. I hope you can come sketch with us.
I Grew up in a small town , Magdalena, New Mexico. I enjoy art and the pleasure other people get from my work. I always donate some of my sales and art to charities, especially for children. That started in Bolivia with Para los Niños. (Link on sidebar)
