I’m busy creating new drawings. I just finished the top one, Wingless, today. I’ll be posting it in my webstore this weekend along with my drawing Prong – see earlier post. The other drawing Irridis was done for a friend.
This is a detail of the piece I am working at on this cold, cloudy November day. It’s a small figure but it took 3 hours to ink. The reason being that the brush I was using is superfine, and though the godless jpeg compression would not have you believe it, the gradations are quite subtle. I hope you enjoy this little peek. This morning’s musical selection in the studio was Foals. A really excellent band I was completely unaware of before 9 AM.
Also, a friendly reminder that the Bestowed Upon Us show opens tonight at the Alexi Era Gallery. If you are in the area, please go and check it out. I’ve seen the preview and it is a gorgeous show. Thanks for your support.
The Veil is a cross hatched drawing done with a dip pen and then painted with acrylic inks. The drawing was done last year but the coloring was done today. One of these days I’d love to illustrate a book in this technique.
This piece is on sale. If you are interested you can check it out in my webstore. Each time one of my sale pieces sells, I put up a new sale piece (eventually).
Here are a couple of details from The Whispering Wind. I’m focused on the characters for the moment. The background will be rendered in lighter values to make the figures stand out a bit. Sometimes I like to bury everything in a dense mass but this piece calls out for a different treatment.
