European Landscape – Digital, line

European Landscape – Digital, line

This was a short study in using simple lines to convey depth and perspective. I didn’t pre-measure, just launched in to the drawing, using my hands and eyes. I am still working on developing the connectivity between what my eyes see and what I can bring to paper. I’m sure this is going to be an ongoing process, with many iterations, for the rest of my life. I’m happy with this because I was able to get so much out of it being minimal in my approach.

Sailboat in Marina (drawing)

An ink drawing of an approximation of my sailboat at the opening of our marina. This started as a landscape, but I decided to include the boat. The perspective is off in places, but I like the composition. Not a bad drawing for not sketching first and making up the scene mostly from memory.

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.

ABOUT THIS PICTURE

8.5″ x 11″, craft acrylic on paper. This started as a loose sketch painting trial using acrylic paints, for a large scale painting I was going to begin working on. As I was unfamiliar with acrylics at the time, I used craft acrylics, which came in bright pour-out tubes of color. They are an easily-available grade of acrylic paint, something you would use to decorate a craft, not necessarily for creating a painting, but as I am beginning to discover anything can be used artistically; that is what makes art so wonderful, its versatility and flexibility, with room for interpretation.
