Views of Persephone

I’m showing two of my black and white pencil perspectives of Persephone’s stone carved face; one from the front and one from the side
This illustrates how your subject can become more interesting as you explore different vantage points and what they have to offer.
Stages of Edie

This is a series of drawings revealing the stages in a mixed media process using colored pencil and watercolor. It is of a wonderful dog Edie,whose face reveals such emotion. The first is the contour demonstrating the light source to show form, the composition, and my personality highlighted by drawing quite blindly and keeping my eye on the subject.

The next stage is the addition of watercolor to the contour. Windsor&Newton is a brand I highly recommend.

Bird’s Eye View
September 18, 2014 § Leave a comment
This is a three drawing series where we look at a stork within its natural setting. We first zoom in on the eye and beak, then step back taking in more, and finally see the entire setting. Serial imagery provides valuable insight into the connections within our art, it helps tell a story, and allows the viewer to understand it on a personal level .

I recently posted three floral contours to be completed with the textural gradations of stippling, hatching , and scribble. Here is the first comprised of clusters of stipple marks that create dot like effects to support the contour. It is a time consuming, detail oriented endeavor, yet can also be completed in a looser more painterly manner.
