Painting, it begins..again

I have been spending a lot of time this year sketching, in ‘@FiftyThree‘ s Paper53 app on the ipad or at the live drawing events held by #Alpharetta Figure Drawing/Painting Group. I think it’s time to start painting now. Working with brushes is flowing like it should. I start to paint after the kids go to bed then I lookup… and the sun is peeking in. Feels great to lose that much time. Three 40″x30″ canvases, and I have a 40″x70″ that i need to sand and surface. These pieces are still in progress, the one in the center is close to being done. Working on some, …

Late Night Monster

This is an old piece I found hiding in a friends room, it was never finished. I thought about re-working the canvas but decided to digitally work it instead. This is my first attempt. I’m using Paper53 on the iPad with a digital stylus ‘Pencil’, all very strange and fun. #madewithpaper / fiftythree.com

Friday’s sketchbook review…

This week Nov 16th – 22nd, 2013 I got a lot done this week. I will do a break down of the water color set soon. Water color set (Lego’s inside a Altoids case), water reservoir brush, ink reservoir brush, pink highlighter, and a white color pencil. I think there was also a red fine roller ball, a green highlighter and a purple sharpie.      

Now on Amazon, (I hope this works?)

I have put a painting on Amazon. I will tell you the process what a bit ruff but after reading that, “Some categories doesn’t require codes, If your items fit into one of the Non-Matching categories you can list without codes: Everything Else, Collectibles, Jewelry, Beauty, and Personal Care”. On this website. I was ready to try again. I will be adding more as I make time to shoot and add them. Wish me luck.

Friday’s sketchbook review…

This week past 16 years, February 1997 – Nov 15th 2013. I have worked on this sketchbook, on and off. It was started out as a journal for my lizard. In 1997 I bought a tiny lizard from a street peddler and named it “Frog”. I continued working on the book long after I let the lizard go but ‘Frog’ continued to be a source of inspiration. I would use this book whenever the ‘Frog’  inspiration hit. This was never my main sketchbook, I picked it up and worked on it from time to time. 84 pages, divided by 16 years gives …

Plein air painting.

Ok, night two I painted in front of the CVS near my home. A slight change of palette, I added a lemon yellow, sap green, and burnt umber. That gives me seven colors! Cadmium red deep Windsor blue Cadmium yellow deep Titanium white Lemon yellow Sap green Burnt umber. The extra colors worked out great, I have a lot(!) more work to do and will not put off working on my palette anymore. Try new things. I am thinking about picking a subject less lit, all the street lights are muting the over all ‘nighttime’ feel. As you can imagine I’m …

Day one Night one, it was cold and fun to be out side painting again. A police officer in a cruiser stopped bye, “just to take a look”, he was very nice. I didn’t stray far, I was on foot with my bag and  board. I will be doing this as long as the weather stays above 50.

all about lizards

Friday’s sketchbook review…

These spreads are from the “all about lizard” book. The Lizard book was started in 1997 when I started chronicling the adventures of at the time my lizard “frog”. He was not a good pet, I set him free in 1999 and wish him the best. I continue to work in this sketchbook off and on. Some sections gap weeks others years. I will be photographing and sharing as part of a “sketchbook Friday” back fill. Leave a comment and tell me what you think. Pages 62 – 63 Pages 64 – 65 Pages 66 – 67
