I sold a few sets of drawings to a buyer in Canada. Thank you very nice Canadian! I wish shipping was cheaper so you didn’t have to pay so much, but glad you think it’s worth it!
The finished skull drawing. I think it’s better in person (Oh yeah of course :D)
Anyways, my puppy knows where to go potty, knows how to sit and down, and is generally just a really good dude. It’s only a matter of time until he becomes world dictator.
Here is my excuse for not posting for a few days. He is my new assistant. I hired him for sharpening pencils, but he is no good at it and has just decided to be a hand warmer instead.
Maybe not so conducive to drawing…
Not finished (obviously – I mean, look at those mandibular molars!)
Ok I will post more soon I promise!
Works in progress and some awful attempts at gouache:
Just to make you feel better about your gouache skills of course.
WIP (including the lower right jaw.)
Have a great Wednesday!
A glarey super sneaky sneak preview of my painting in progress. Finished to the nose mostly – not lower yet. Kind of trying a more detailed style. Personally I prefer my looser brush strokes with less strokes and more action, but I was inspired to do some more detailed work and go back to that once I’m done. I also have a beautiful model for this, so that’s kind of cheating. She’s a babe.
Here are a few crappy gouache studies I did. I do not understand gouache. I try and try and try and I just don’t get it. It’s like women.
CHECK OUT E-BAY! There is some great stuff going on right here!! These deals kick butt! Can’t beat them for this quality artwork right here. Because prices are intangible objects. That’s why you can’t beat them. Plus it’s just not nice. What did they ever do to you?
This is all you get. Why? Because it’s the only area I worked on today (the forehead, eyes.) Once I fix the placement of the nose, I will include that. I can tell you are looking forward to it. Woah, careful now, that kind of excitement could get someone hurt.
Hi, I have neglected you my friends.
Here’s a bunch of sketches to make up for it (and no, no real paintings, there’s one on the board but not finished enough yet.)
The hand looks biiiig!
5 minute sketch
Well that’s all you get for today. Tomorrow some painting update photos. Maybe.

But feel free to e-mail me about personal one on one online classes.
Here is a sketch since you’ve been so good. Unfinished I guess.
If you make a few accounts and press like from all of them for my pinterest entry, I will put up a neatly cropped version out of love.
Have a great evening!
Under an hour colour study with no regard to drawing, tried out new Arches oil paper. Also I don’t believe I’ve painted this light type more than three times. I remember every single time because it was like TORTURE. This one wasn’t so bad. Or I’m just getting desensitized to the PAIN.
Pretty sure that’s it.
Have an awesome day.
The photo is a bit bright (you can tell if you compare it to the far away one in my last entry.) Oh well! Here she is finished.
