Quarry (Ink Drawing)

Quarry (Ink Drawing)

This drawing is based on a picture I took. I visited a local quarry. It was so pretty! I was enchanted with the light and dark of the landscape, and the planes of the rocks. This is a study sketch that I felt came out really well. (To view at a higher resolution, click here.)

Martinez (Landscape Drawing)

I felt like getting back to drawing on paper recently. This is a quick sketch study of Martinez, CA, from the view of a nearby park. Minimal and simple, but still visually interesting, I think. I used a small, black Micron pen.

Girl in a Wrap (drawing)

Girl in a Wrap (drawing)

Did a small, little unfinished figure drawing today. I enjoyed making lots of lines and just letting my brain come up with whatever it felt like. I used a reference photo for a girl in a wrap as a very loose concept. The colors in the wrap and various other squiggly lines that I seem to be obsessed with lately are my brain child. This is very rough, but was relaxing and fun. I’m not super happy with the upper portion of her — her head — but as for her neck and shoulders, and the rest of her physique, I am very pleased with those lines. I may come back to this and add in her facial features, or just leave this as a exercise. Everything doesn’t have to be a polished, finished product.

 


 

The full image. You can see her full figure. I especially like the wrap colors!

The same image, but zoomed in and focused on her bust, and the wrap.
