Sounds like Sumi-e painting to me.
This old book has tons of his drawings in good quality. Theyre all at the end though, so you have to go past about 100 pages of text to get to...
Its been a long time since my last post. Here are a couple life drawings from the model and a pen&ink from a picture
Thank you ezekrialase.
Last night's model was awesome. He was a real NYC steelworker and he came in his full work gear. There was so much authenticity to him, everybody got a good picture out of...
Ink wash drawing of Alima from Saturday's sketch group
That's talking about pre-release buzz, surveying how many people have heard of the movie and how many are psyched and how many dont care. Its how they predict box office before the movie is released....
Sucks how those designers killed the web and nobody uses it anymore.
BTW, wikipedia is ad-free. Its funded solely by donations
Thank you sin eater!
I have to say, I'm really enjoying my foray into watercolors. They're not nearly as unforgiving as I had always believed. Far easier than oils, in my opinion. It is tricky to...
A watercolor and ink from last night's sketch group
Thanks, man, though my technique is really a lack of technique. I personally feel my inks are too scritchy scratchy, but I'm working on that
Some new stuff from the sketchbook.
This one was done in ink at my weekly sketch group. I like how the drawing came out, but I think i was too heavy handed on the blacks, so I redid a second...
Been a while since my last posting. Here are some pen and inks from my weekly life sessions.
Thank you, Kev.
Funny, I was just coming to this same realization myself after many years of drawing. It seems like it should be very obvious, but in practice, its pretty hard to visualize more...
Looks like a heavy duty watercolor paper. Maybe Arches 300 lb?
Does he not say what he's using in the whole demo?
Here's a 2.5 hour portrait from last weekend. This guy is my favorite model. He's got such a chiseled, weathered, ancient warrior type of face, its almost impossible not to get a good picture from...
This may or may not be of interest to this discussion, but I found it interesting. Daniel Coyle's The Talent Code blog has a post today about what he calls the "G-Factor" or growth potential. The...
yeah, to be honest, I haven't really determined whether the all current ideas on talent are the truth or if its just an extension of the same idea where every schoolkid gets a trophy so that nobody...
The literature seems to focus largely on performance type skills, so world-class would mean star athletes, concert soloists, prima ballerinas, opera divas.... that sort of skill, but I think that...
I've read that the story of Mozart being naturally born with musical genius is a myth. His father started training him in music at an extremely young age, so when other people were just starting...
Whenever I start to worry about how long my progress takes, I like the think on this quote:
"From the age of six I had a mania for drawing the shapes of things. When I was fifty I had published a...
I hear you. I'm constantly finding myself running up against shortcomings in areas where I neglected or thought myself beyond the fundamentals. So while I think i'm pretty decent at some aspects of...
Also, I want to add that I find this whole idea very Vegas Beatlemania-ish. There's so much more to art than just the big rockstar paintings.
There are so many smaller museums all over the...
I dunno if you want to call it energy or aura or whatever, but there really is a kind of magic to being in the presence of the actual physical artwork touched by the hand of the master. To get right...
From Tuesday open model session. 2 hours. Oil on vellum.
No. Theoretical or physical, the horizon line stays on the ground. When you tilt your head up, the horizon drops down, but you now get a new, 3rd vanishing point up in the sky.
