It’s not often I decide to deviate from my normal drawing style, but I thought I would attempt a long drawing using a new technique; well, it’s “new” to me anyway. The technique is known as “hatching” and can be done in a variety of styles. So I decided to combine several of these styles and try my hand at hatching on one of my more popular subjects – a horse!

Just finished this one about ten minutes ago, so I snapped a photo using the smart phone and decided to post it to the blog. This completes the third and final drawing in this “Beauty” series. Soon to be framed like the other two. Enjoy. Continue reading “A Bashful Beauty” – charcoal drawing
The second in a series of horse drawings involving the same horse. I’m thinking of doing a third to make a completed series of three but haven’t decided yet. Your feedback would be appreciated in determining this. The process was exactly the same as “A Silent Beauty”, so there is no sense in repeating that process here. Hope you enjoy!

This coming Saturday and Sunday, (October 6th and 7th) I’ll be submitting several of my original drawings into the R.O.A.R – Russell’s Original Art Review. This is an event that has been going on for 50 years and draws quite a few artists from all across Kansas. I am hoping that my work will be accepted for jury. Results of jury will be announced the final day of the exhibit. The exhibit is open to the public from October 12th – 14th, ending at 4 p.m. in Russell, Kansas in the exhibition center located on the fair grounds northeast of town.
Hope to see some of you there!
Good day, Everyone!
Just wanted to announce another solo exhibit coming up soon. This one will be with Liz Shepherd of Pretty Prairie, Kansas at her wonderful gallery and store, PRAIRIE WORKS ART and Gallery. My show will begin November 1st and run through most of December. I’ll have some new pieces there, and will also have a few of my more popular prints there as well. Location of PRAIRIE WORKS ART is: 115 West Main Street, Pretty Prairie, KS. You can contact Liz via email: email@example.com or see her Facebook page: Prairie Works Art
Hope to see some of you there!
Greetings! I have another solo art exhibit coming up October 26th, 2018 at “GALLERY ALLEY” located at 616 E. Douglas Ave, Wichita, Kansas. This will be a ONE DAY event and I will have mostly ALL ORIGINALS on display: horses, Hollywood character portraits, mastercopies of Frank Frezetta, Bougeureau, and my own works. It’s an outdoor venue, so this is going to depend upon the weather conditions that evening. Show will run from 6 – 9 p.m. if the weather proves cooperative. Live music will also be available and lots of places to eat will be very close, or right across the street! And don’t forget! I still have my “Essence of Charcoal” going on at “L’image” over at 615 West Douglas until October 12th.
