Welcome to my Studio
Both of the drawings on today's post have come from my mind yet one of them comes from my memory.
The drawing of the boy is once again an example for a project that I am working on. This one I wasn'y really concentrating on the boy as much as what he's wearing and the colors.
The second is a blast from the past as it's a drawing of the house that I grew up in. After I finished the drawing I realized that I forgot to add a tree, so please forgive the omission.
Greetings and welcome to September! Well entry has three different drawings yet all kind of drawn in the same way.
The first, is a sketch I did for a project just trying to get some ideas for a character. This drawing came completely from my mind with no reference. Well, except for all of the children that i have seen over my life that is. This drawing was done with ink pen and a brush pen.
The second, I used a photograph that I recently took while on vacation at Yellowstone Park. While I did use ink and brush pens to do the drawing, also adding ink washes using a water brush. I added the blue of the water by using watercolor pencils then used the water brush over that.
The third drawing was drawn completely from life. Last Friday I had lunch at a local Wendy's restaurant and as I looked out the window something said "draw me", so I did. Once again I used a Micron pen, my faithful brush pen, and the water brush to make the grays.
It was a lot of fun drawing all three of these pieces using all my skills and imagination.
Hello and greetings to my 2.3 followers. Today I'm posting once again from my trusty drawing pad, but these have a twist. I have been doing some experimenting with my drawings lately. Yes, they are drawn with pens as usual, but I have been adding thin washes of ink to them. It's taken a bit of time to get used to controlling the way that ink will flow on the drawing. The first thing is, you can't control it, it does what it does and you have to be prepared for what happens. I'll tell you it's a lot of fun!
I am also playing with adding watercolor to my drawings as well. Not "real" watercolors, but watercolor pencils. They are really cool actually. Just color as you would normally with colored pencils, then just brush on some water. Nifty! Once I get comfortable using watercolrs, I may start using more traditional watercolors.
