Here’s a digital drawing of a strange little fella. S/he will be appearing on Twitter tomorrow on #MacroinvertebrateMonday. Check it out 😀

Bish Bash Bosh!

Liek many artists, I supplement my income through teaching part-time. One thing that’s become very obvious over the years is that so many people genuinely have no idea how long it takes to make an artwork. There’s a popular image that artists sit down (SIT? I wish!) and go “bish, bash, bosh” and behold – a painting (sculpture, etching etc…)

No concept of the huge amount of work that goes into each piece. Starting with sketching (because I’m old school) to explore the subject and get used to it. Then some colour studies to work out the hues, tones, tints etc… That’s where I’m at now. I’ve still got a fair bit of work to do on this digital drawing before I move on to the final medium – either watercolour or collage – I haven’t decided yet.

Carrying on with my digital drawing of three weird squashes, I started adding some shadows and details using my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and a free Markers app. One of the advantages to digital drawing is that you can hit the SAVE button frequently and get a record of the drawing as it develops….

A Little Bit More

I’m carrying on with the digital drawing of my three wacky squashes I started yesteday. It’s a primitive drawing package, but it’s fine for what I want it for, quick little studies. I used my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with a free Markers app.

In The Beginning…

In the beginning …. is the sketch. I have been given three wacky squashes and I’m going to have a go at a still life; not sure what technique yet – watercolour, collage? But first of all, some sketching to really study the weird vegetables and understand how they’re made up. I’m using my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet with a free markers app and drawing with the stylus using the continuous line technique. A few more quick sketches and I’ll be ready to start on something more polished.

The Dog Had A Bath

The dog had a bath and now she’s running around like a maniac! Husb and I are dog-sitting while her people are on holiday. She’s a Pomerpoo – a Pomeranian / Toy Poodle cross – very small with lots of black fluffy fur. When we bathed her it stuck up all over the place. She’s not too pleased about it. Sparta Puss thinks it’s quite funny though.

Drawing Black

Drawing black is hard. So is drawing animals, well for me anyway. I’m pretty good at drawing cats now as I’ve had decades of practice and they tend to keep still. I haven’t quite got dogs though. Husb and I are puppy-sitting for a week, a little black Pomerpoo (Pomeranian Poodle cross). She has huge bat-like ears, big eyes and jet black silky fur, apart for a tiny smudge of white on her chin. I had a go this evening on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet using a free Markers app. I put in a dark grey ground to start with, then worked in light and dark on top with a variety of different digital brushes. Most of what’s black actually looks grey, silver or white when you analyse it. I drew from a photo, she’s far too excitable to pose for me.

that's not an exercise regime, it's a junta copy

Sparta Puss isn’t lazy. She’s just relaxed. So she says. My digital drawing, Husb’s caption.

Hairy Haiku. It’s my cat again. She’s very clever.

Husb and I have been playing around with some of my drawings of Sparta Puss. There are loads of them hanging around because she really likes posing for me. So Husb has been adding little captions. She is not amused 😀
