Journal Pages

Last week I had a chance to draw in my book a little bit. I didn't have a lot of time so I decided to do some more Zentangle drawings. I find these so relaxing to do. They really are fun. Nothing spectacular here, just playing around with some different shapes.

Painter Assignment

I am currently taking a class called Applied Computer Graphics for Art Educators. Basically, we use Corel Painter to create art and translate that into lesson plans. For this assignment we had to go into the museum and draw from three different sculptures, scan those drawings into Painter, combine the three images, and use the brushes in Painter to color the image. This is what I came up with. I thought about continuing with it, but I like the painterly feel to it so I am calling it finished. We didn't have to write a lesson for this one, just do the image.

Charcoal Drawing

So much for posting each day! Better late than never I guess. This one was done as an example for a junior high lesson plan on non-representational art. I really enjoyed doing this one, even though it made a big mess. It was meant to be 1 of 4, that could later be placed together as a whole, but I am thinking I might not do the other 3. When I drew the original lines it marked the paper and they still show after erasing. I might just try doing another one on a different paper and using a softer pencil for my lines.

Adrien Brody Caricature

I haven't been keeping up with my posts, but I have several things to show and will put one up each day until I run out of new drawings to post. This one is part of the A to Zed Caricature Challenge. Just a quickie, but I wanted to get going on the challenge. The last one took so long to color, it sort of stalled me out on the challenge. Done in my sketchbook with my Pitt brush pen.
