From the Sketchbook(12)

It’s a Oldie! About the second after I finished this page of sketches I received a phone call telling me the project went kaput. So that was that. I think I was on to something here, but, alas . . . . . Another rendering from this went nowhere. Below is a rendering for a […]

From the Sketchbook(11)

After the previous post on Eyvind Earle I caught myself thinking about his marvelous use of putting colors together to create really magical scenes, and the next thing I know is I’m attempting(attempting) to do the same thing while watching the Cav’s game tonight.

The other day I posted this surreal scene in colored pencils and ink. Here’s another; same style. I think this is a little more realistic and good practice for a “job-like” rendering. [I use Berol PRISMACOLOR, and Derwent Studio colored pencils.] Hey! what can I say. I like to draw goofy trees!

Fireplace Posibility (5)

Back in the last post we(actually it’s just “I”) were trying to pull all the previous post together about this custom designed outdoor fireplace with wood storage as part of the focal point this fireplace is to become . . . a confusing sentence I think. What I am trying to say is that it’s […]
