Graphite Study of Bouguereau painting featured in the digital study I did in an earlier post.
This one is for sale – I believe it’s 20×20, and here I really had a great time putting the ground on. You can see the beautiful crackle of paint in the background. Another thing I love to do is put those colour bursts in the core shadows. Mmmm.
This was my first pastel. I like pastel, but don’t love it. I think pastel can indicate landscapes in an incredible way, I admire deeply those who have skill with it (but it’s certainly not me!) I would like to use it more often and learn it. Very fun.
My Gouache on moleskine study from quite a while ago. I’m surprised this one didn’t get posted. It was 36 degrees outside when I sketched this and I couldn’t use gloves for some reason. My hand was killing me by the time I was satisfied. Good times. I loved Philly! Probably not as much as I love L.A.
