A Little Update

I probably won't be posting any new paintings for a while. I'm working on some children's portraits right now, and I'm not going to post those on the internet. So I'll be putting up a better picture of the fourth Tess (eventually) and sketches whenever I have them.

In the meantime, here's a somewhat better picture of that Tess. I'll replace it with a better one as soon as I have to time to go out in the sun and photograph it properly.

Tess IV

This one's done for now; all I have to do is touch it up and flatten it. I'll post a better photo as soon as all that's done.

Just Some Doodles

There really wasn't much to draw in the library Thursday. Just one girl reading a book, and the same guy that had Georgia On His Mind. So I just doodled a bit with my pens...

These are from life, as always.

Georgia wasn't on his mind this time. It's a different guy inside his head there.

I was just having fun playing with hatching and cross-hatching.

All these were with #001 Micron pens.
I tried playing with my pen nibs and ink Thursday too, but that didn't go very well. I learned my lesson about leaving a bottle of ink in a car overnight in the middle of winter... Apparently, Higgins ink doesn't defrost too good. That bottle of ink is now a bottle of black sludge.

Megan II

(22" x 20")

And I'm starting a new one of Tess. I'll post pictures of that once I get some work done on it.

Math, Math, Math

Much better subjects today. More of them, too, and all the best ones were within 10 feet of me.

Sounded like he and his buddies were trying to figure out their calculus homework. Poor guy.

Another one doing math homework. I'm so glad I got my math over with.

And here's that girl with all those earrings again. She sat down right across from me, so I had all the time in the world to draw her today. She was doing math homework too. Come to think of it, everybody there was doing math homework. Hmm...

I promise I'll post a picture of a painting soon.

Just One

I had a very pathetic half hour at the library yesterday (much less time between classes on Tuesdays). It was practically empty, and I didn't have a very good view of the few people that were there.

This girl would have been fun to draw if she would have stayed longer than five minutes. She was covered in piercings, not that you can tell from the sketch. I drew her eyebrow ring, but it kind of came out as a lump. Oh well.
That's really the only decent sketch I got.
I'll be taking another two hour trip to the library tomorrow, so we'll see how it goes then.
