Recent Art Works

It has been a while since I have posted. I have been checking in here every once in a while. Busy, busy…

Anyway, here is my most recent portrait drawing:

I have been doing a lot of oil painting and I decided to get back to drawing. I usually use graphite and white charcoal. I started out with that, but I got frustrated with the usual fight between the graphite and the white charcoal, so I decided to try some black charcoal and white soft pastel. I just put it right over the graphite and it worked! I was very surprised. Of course, I had to go over all the graphite, because the charcoal and graphite looked very different. The graphite shine made the blacks look very much lighter compared to the charcoal. So, this is a mixed media piece. LOL! I used a photo from photographer Pierre Gonnord.

Here is an old colored pencil drawing, probably from around 1995. I just wanted to show my “before Virtual Instructor” and “after Virtual Instructor” works. A few years ago, I decided to take my art seriously and signed up for Virtual Instructor and took off!

Wow. So glad you shared your art journey with us. You give me hope seeing what you did “back in the day” Your colored pencil drawing looks a lot like what I did in when I was younger- and didn’t have to work for a living. Retired now


Here’s the first thing I painted when I decided to get back to my art

This portrait is soooo smooth. The lighting across his face is delicately executed. I think it excellent work.
