Another Repin Academy sketch

Since I am currently practicing some figure sketch and am so very fond of Ilya Repin’s work, I decided to try my hand at another mastercopy from images found on Google’s image search for “Repin Academy of Arts drawings”. This was much more challenging… Continue reading Another Repin Academy sketch

“The Spanish Dancer” – horse drawing

Good Day!

Just finished this drawing last night. I rendered it as a personal tribute of sorts, for the Spanish Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art.  I substituted the original white horse for one of my favorite colored horses, which you’ll soon see.  Drawn mostly using a 6B Wolffs carbon pencil with a little bit of Nitram HB charcoal for the softer areas. Hope you enjoy. I’ve provided some close ups of the drawing so that you can see the details. Continue reading “The Spanish Dancer” – horse drawing

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
