Another practice piece that shows that I need a LOT more practice. I have the hardest time getting the two halves of items like this to look symmetrical. It doesn’t matter is it’s a coffee cup, a wine bottle or a flower vase. They always seem to come out looking like an accident from the kiln. Maybe I’ll spend the rest of Leslie Saeta’s 30-Paintings-in-30-Days challenge doing mostly still lifes with these kinds of objects.

Another quick practice session while listening to Joe Rogan interview Elon Musk. Kind of hard to keep my mind on the drawing when I was listening to that genius talk about how he saw the world. More people need to pay attention to that man and what he believes.

Anyway, I think the drawing came out pretty good. I have a couple of other photos of her that I’d like to try, maybe in pencil or pastel.

Just a couple of hours of drawing practice. Drapery is always a good still life for drawing practice.

Just a quickee from last night. Not much else to say about it. Spent a lot of time yesterday working on outlines for a couple of novels I’m working on and just needed the break with a little art.

A quick (3 hours) figure study this evening. This is just an 8×10″ on wood panel, but I am thinking about doing this as a much bigger piece, such as on the 36×36″ canvas that is waiting on my easel for something to be painted on it.

I actually did this one yesterday, right after doing the small practice piece. I had some paint left over and decided I wasn’t nearly as painted out as I thought I was, so I grabbed another panel and went to it. This came out much better than the first one, but that’s probably because it’s bigger. The other one, being on 2×3″ is not nearly as easy to paint on as one might think. I find it much easier to paint on larger surfaces.

I’ve been working so hard on my novels lately that my painting time has gone by the wayside. I still try to do some drawing, but painting is something I don’t do nearly as much as I would like. So, today I was looking for something in the studio and came across some of my ACEO canvas panels and decided to do a quick painting. For those not up on the current art lingo, ACEO stands for Art Cards Originals and Editions. Do not ask me why it’s not ACOE. I don’t have a clue. Maybe I should just call them by their other name with is ATC or Artist Trading Cards, so called because they are the same size at baseball trading cards.

Anyway, this is something I worked up just to get my brushes back in my hands. I have a 36×36″ canvas sitting on my easel behind me, just begging me to do something with it. I’ll get to it.

Just another practice session, with some mindless drawing. I was just listening to some epic battle music on Youtube and decided to do a drawing from memory. I need to get back to writing a couple of days (July Camp NaNoWriMo) and won’t have a lot of time for drawing, but I’ll try to find a few minutes each day.
