From Out of The Mist

I’m going to write quite a bit about this drawing because there are lots of things that I want to discuss regarding how this piece came together and many of the things I had to consider. But since I know there are really impatient people, I’ll suggest you scroll down to the bottom of the blog to see the “finished” result.  Continue reading From Out of The Mist

CAN I GET A RIDE? – charcoal and carbon

Today’s drawing was something I had laid out a few months back but just never got around to doing it. I guess it would fall within the genre’ of “realism”(?) in the arena of art, but then again, maybe it belongs in another genre’ that I am not familiar with…which are many. Continue reading CAN I GET A RIDE? – charcoal and carbon

YA GONNA EAT ALL THAT? – carbon, charcoal and graphite drawing.

Okay folks! I think I’m going to simply post the finished results first before I go into any of the detailed process of how I created today’s drawing. I’d like to thank J.B. for providing part of the subject matter and my sister Yvonne for helping out with the title. Continue reading YA GONNA EAT ALL THAT? – carbon, charcoal and graphite drawing.

HEADIN’ HOME – charcoal and carbon drawing

While rearranging my artwork, I came across three old pieces of art that I had set aside to eventually be either culled (thrown away), or posted FOR SALE to any interested buyer.  The drawing is of a local barn but the horses, the fence, and the trees, and the windmill, are of my own making. I entitled this piece “Headin’ Home” and it is for sale.  Continue reading HEADIN’ HOME – charcoal and carbon drawing

SHARING A SECRET – charcoal on carbon

This is a drawing I completed in October of 2016. My oldest sister suggested that I do some wildlife, or perhaps some horses, since many people who live in the area like or raise horses. Having never drawn a horse before, I thought it was a good idea, so she went down a ways from her country home and took a few photographs of her neighbor’s horses. The drawing that follows is a result from her photographic adventure.  Continue reading SHARING A SECRET – charcoal on carbon

“PERFECT TIMING” – charcoal, carbon, graphite drawing

The title of this drawing came about as a bit of irony, which I was pondering one day while watching fish eat flies and bugs from the surface of a nearby pond.  How the idea came into my head…..I have no idea.  Continue reading “PERFECT TIMING” – charcoal, carbon, graphite drawing

“THE BLACK ANDALUSIAN” – carbon and charcoal drawing

This is a recent drawing I did of a black, Andalusian horse. I wanted to add some animal life to my portfolio and since horses and small, fuzzy creatures seem to be very popular among certain groups of people, I decided to go with the horses. This will be short and sweet in description.
