Charcoal

Well, I guess negligence is the best way to describe it… Maybe.
I’ve been negligent in my upkeep which considering the name of the blog is rather, obvious. Still I could make excuses and frankly they would all be true but still it’s the simplest thing to do a drawing a day. I mean a good friend of mine said even of you put up a stock figure you still should put something up.

He’s right.

But I haven’t and the gaps between art are (in my own opinion) annoyingly wide.

Strangely… I do care.
I mean some of you have taken the time to ‘follow’ my scribbles and frankly that’s kind of awesome. There are also the folk who pop up from all over the world, places I’ve never been that ‘like’ some of my work so I owe it too you all , too me to be more studious and prolific in my art.

I’ll do my best.

This charcoal…
i like it.
And it was fun.

Music; none tonight. Just the ringing in my ear, the sound of a bus outside and the mumble of the city at night.

Good night.

Fields.

Colored pencil.

Just sitting on the back deck on a sunny Saturday looking out across the fields. There was a little trouble getting depth as the green in the high midday sun were all so similar, but it works ok.

I like this drawing, it loose enough to capture the scene without having to much detail.

I can look at it and ‘see’ the spot.

I need to sketch more *sigh*

Music: we were all sitting around just chatting and watching the kids in an epic water fight… The music of laughter.

Oil pastel.

I was looking at the time, and like usual it’s a lot later then I actually want to be up. I had a pose in my head, but I limited the time I could spend on this drawing.

The figure I wanted didn’t work so I did this one instead. I limited myself to 10 minutes. So two bad sketches and then this one all done in time.

Turned out ok, a little fake looking somewhere between a cartoon and real life.
