Awarded 2nd Place and Merit in Recent Juried Art Exhibit

Greetings everyone!

On Monday, April 8th, 2019, I submitted three drawings into the juried 45th Annual Prairie Art Exhibit, held inside the Studio 96 Gallery in Sterling, Kansas.  The juror was Jim Clements, whose oil paintings have been awarded both nationally and internationally, so I was very nervous, yet excited to see if my work would be acceptable to someone of his caliber.  Continue reading Awarded 2nd Place and Merit in Recent Juried Art Exhibit

“The Gallant” – horse drawing, new technique

Good day!

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! Continue reading “The Gallant” – horse drawing, new technique
