Forest Vines drawing

My drawing of forest vines is based on a photograph I took on the property of my wife Carolyn’s cousin in North Carolina.  Yes it took a long time. Lots of shapes to draw with lots of ink dots.

Painting-of-Amy-from-life

beginning stages of a painting of a model named Amy

This painting was painted from life at a painting session at Webster Groves Christian Church. I took several photos of the model and will continue working on this  using the photos for reference. I used tempera and acrylic paint on canvas board. I painted over an existing painting with various acrylic colors.

This pastel drawing was created during a drawing and painting session at Webster Groves Christian Church. The model works with a drawing and painting meet-up group in St. Louis Missouri. This drawing is on mat board that is 20″ wide by 32″ high. I took digital photos of Blyre and will continue drawing from the photos I took. I will share posts on the progress of this pastel drawing.

I have been busy preparing for an art gallery show ,which I was in charge of ,that opened on January 21 2013 and have had limited time to post on this blog. This is a pastel drawing I did from a model last Thursday at the St.Louis Artists’ Guild. I enjoy drawing from life because I do not filter or question what I am doing. Time spent on drawing about forty minutes.

Again I would like to thank those who take the time to follow my blog.
