    What are those gray canson sketchbooks called? All I can find are sketchbooks with different colors called "mi-teintes" by Canson. I really want one instead of buying paper by paper.

    Plus, amazing rendering on that gray paper. I wish I could achieve that look.

    raminafshari--thanks!

    prsnsweeney--thanks! i do too. it's been too long since i did them. i got to do a few of them for something Star Wars-related and something Marvel/Comicon related at work, but i can't say anything more.

    fushandchips--thanks! the model was moving a lot so i had to kind of design the shapes that i wanted to see.

    WOW! Nathan's demo is freaking brilliant !! He sure knows what he's doing.

    I am surprised that the demo was in acrylic though, for a water-based portrait class. He didn't want to have to use a blow-dryer every 2 minutes maybe (?)

    might have to take these down soon. these are presentation drawings for my friend Matt from my engineering days. he has invented a kind of motorized skateboard that moves like a "freebord" and is controlled like one of those Segway scooters. He's exhibiting at an entrepreneur conference at Stanford. these are just some pitch drawings--eye candy for his booth.

    tony00--yeah, nathan is always brilliant. i'm glad to be taking his class again, but the timing couldn't be worse. i don't have adequate time to commit to the homework with all this freelance and side project stuff going on. but i don't know when he's going to get around to offering this one again, so i felt like i had to take it.

    using acrylic like this is way easier for me than watercolor. nathan does have a way of working that's very loose and watercolor-ish, but the advantage is just that you can paint over it without disturbing the paint underneath. in watercolor and white gouache, you have a very limited number of passes before you can't paint over it any more. like maybe 2-3 layers at the most.

    クリス、studies and assignments look really tight man - and good to see you are busy. Love the pen portrait/work environment project, curious how that turned out on print.
    Wish I could join in the Fowkes fun, seem like you getting a lot out of them.
    Keep 'm coming man!

    One thing I like about Nathan's acrylic sketches is the palette. The shapes and energy are amazing of course, but he has very variety/harmony going on I think, and great skin colours..

    I've been doing a lot of smaller stuff with sort of Zorn palette, but experimenting with broadening things a bit again. Would love to know his palette if you know it?..

    shit, i'm sick again. can't post anything right now. just gotta make it thru the work day. all i can say is more marvel and star wars stuff. some comicon exclusive designs, and now action figure proposals for a major motion picture that hasn't been released yet. lots o' work. trying to keep up with homework for nathan's class is kicking my ass.

    Hey Lok, this is from Nathan's website:
    http://nathanfowkes-sketch.blogspot....r-bin-old.html

    I use a water bin, an old listerine bottle to carry water in, masking tape, Winsor and Newton watercolors, white gouache, brushes; mostly Princeton (Princeton 1” flat #4350st) and Robert Simmons white sable (#721 flat, sizes 1/2” and 1/4”), sketchbooks and a small hiking pack they all fit in. The sketchbooks are heavy weight, acid free craft paper made by Canson (can be found as a scrapbook in the photo album section of art and stationary stores, product # 541-2022).
    The studies are done small and quickly. Most are less than 3x5" and completed in 40 minutes or less.

    My watercolor palette. All Winsor & Newton brand unless otherwise noted:
    Permanent white designers gouache
    winsor lemon
    winsor yellow deep
    yellow ochre
    winsor orange
    winsor red
    permanent alizarin crimson
    french ultramarine blue
    pthalo blue (winsor blue greenshade)
    pthalo green (winsor green blueshade)
    permanent sap green
    leaf green (Holbein brand)
    venetian red (light red or indian red)
    raw umber
    van dyke brown
    ivory black

    prsnsweeney, yor, shambok thanks!

    I've glanced through the first page and liked what i've seen so far. How long have you been drawing? How do you render Mass, and how do you 'see'? Your work seems to have a very 'cast drawing' quality to it, have you drawn lots of those in your time? I'm working on a bargue drawing at the moment which will push me when I get round to rendering the values on it. The eyes on page one are brilliant. I'll definitely be coming back to this sketchbook to see more.

    beginning of an oil study after jacob collins for nathan fowkes' class

    Name:  20110519_oil.JPG
Views: 2163
Size:  355.2 KB

    MasonJames i've been drawing my whole life but kinda took a break for college (engineering). i started drawing mostly in line until very late in life--maybe age 27 or so. not sure how i see 'mass' per se; i mostly look for volume and look for the rhythms and overlaps that show it the most clearly. after that, i try to design my shapes and use a kind of "calligraphic" line that comes and goes for the core shadows, etc.

    i've done maybe a handful of cast drawings in my entire life. i know it's popular as a learning method and a lot of the new realist schools encourage it. it is useful, depending on where you're at, and i did a couple to try to apply for grad school before i decided against it. i don't like the atelier method of sight-sizing it though. maybe it's useful for improving your eye for proportions, but it kills your rhythm unless you learn to transcend that method, and that's mostly why i say i'm kind of against it.

    some of how i think comes from sculpting. i tend to have a decent eye for value, but i also tend to be pretty timid with color. trying to slowly break out of that habit and loosen up color-wise.

    anyway thanks again!

    really like the oil study you started and your paintings always look good i was wondering if your palette for oils is the same one you use in watercolors or if you use a completely different one ?

    prsnsweeney thanks!

    my palette is mostly the same. for watercolors, i switched to the winsor red/yellow/orange instead of cadmiums just because i tend to dab with my fingers a lot and don't want to ingest the toxic stuff. i like cerulean blue, but i don't use it anymore.

    most of my palette is really traditional.

    earth colors
    burnt/raw umber
    burnt/raw sienna
    transparent red oxide (aka indian red, aka light red)
    yellow ochre

    of course:
    ivory black, titanium white

    normal colors
    cad yellow light, cad yellow, cad orange, cad red light, cad red(sometimes), perm alizarin crimson, quinacridone red (permanent rose), viridian, permanent green light, ultramarine, pthalo blue, sometimes one more green depending on what i'm doing, but i think it's probably better to mix your greens than buy them. black and yellow ochre or black and orange gives you an olive color, for example. i once saw lipking make a nice warm reflected under-the-jaw color with cad orange and viridian...

    i'm a pretty shitty colorist, but when i do occasionally get a good result i think i tend to look at color as variations on a red/blue/yellow scheme with warmer and cooler versions of each of those colors.

    like this:
    warmest cad red light + something yellow
    warm cad red light
    neutral cad red (cad red deep, etc.)
    cool alizarin crimson
    cooler permanent rose

    so if i was going to mix a purple, for example, i could get a dull one using a warm red like cad red light and phthalo blue (which leans green), or i could get a really vibrant one using ultramarine (which leans towards violet) and permanent rose.

    i can then dull it out further by either using an earth color neutral or by adding the part of the triad that isnt there (something "yellow-ish" in this case)

    anyway, hope that helps. take it with a grain of salt, because there are way better colorists out there than me.
