Tannenbaum 2016

December 26, 2016

My annual tannenbaum drawing. Every year I try to make it look different from previous years, and yet every year they all look about the same. I tried to be a little looser and sketchier this year, but… all my stuff is loose and sketchy. Maybe next year I will try to be more precise.

I did put the Minnie’s in front so that’s new.

This one is in colored pencil.

Pink Nightmare

August 16, 2011

Here are a few more of my timid attempts at using color. I rigged a small watercolor palette that is portable and fairly easy to use with the idea being that I could do watercolor sketches on the go. Of course I did all three of these in the comfort of my own home. So I guess I am still working up the guts to do those watercolors on the go.

The problem is that I spend a lot of time on http://www.urbansketchers.org, which showcases the work of some pretty dang amazing sketchbook artists from all over the world. Seeing all these new masterpieces pop up everyday is both inspiring and intimidating.
