New gesture drawing from one of my practice sessions (2D source). As usual this piece has been mounted on archival Japanese Rice paper to reinforce the papers strength, this time however I decided to have the rice paper over lap the newsprint by about a 0.5 cm as I thought it looks rather nice that way..
Available now in my Etsy store.. :)
Thanks for dropping by! :D
So I went a diving in to my old store of holiday pics from the bygone days when I went anywhere at all, and found some snapshots taken on a trip to Tioman Island.. Their beaches are the stuff of paradise, as are many of our beautiful seaside destinations here. The sand as fine as caster sugar and water so crystal clear, one could almost forget the degradation and pollution that would probably have shown up if not for the resorts careful maintenance.
Painted alla prima....
.... and another gesture drawing... :)
Hidy ho guys! So I got out and got some sun for once, which took all of 15 paces from my door.. haha!!
Now I kid, I'm not that bad with the sun thing (not that hard in sunny Malaysia!), this was however a first in a long time at doing an en plein air painting, and the weather sure was ideal!..
Loved how this gesture drawing turned out!
Thanks for dropping by guys!.. :)
p.s Pardon the French! Been trying to incorporate it more in to my everyday speech/writing to strengthen my grasp of the language.. :D
These are a few gestures from one of my drawing practice sessions I thought would look awesome as a set together. They could either be hung together or separately to create a harmonious cohesiveness to a living space.
Each was created with charcoal pencil on newsprint mounted on Japanese archival rice paper and measure 8.5 x 11.5 Inches each.
Thought I'd add a few of my latest gestures to my shop!..
These were all drawn with Derwent Charcoal Pencil on Newsprint during various practice sessions. :)
Hi guys! This little gesture was done in three hues - Ivory Black, Burnt Umber and Burnt Sienna on a toned acrylic ground of Ultramarine + either Ivory Black or Raw Umber (I can't recall!)! I tried to apply each stroke deliberately and accurately, so as to ensure an expressive and confident piece, using the minimal amount of strokes to express the form..
The original is a small study ( There are a few WIP pics at 'Ivory Gesture' ) however the best thing about having a really high res great scanner is I can scan really high resolution images of small works like this and make them available as high quality giclees in quite large sizes (Saatchi have Ivory Gesture Prints at sizes up to 34 Inches ! ).. As long as the artwork fits my little over A4 size scanner (or can be scanned in parts, and combined), I can get really superior quality images for all my art prints !.. :D
Anyways thanks for dropping by guys!
Hope you all are keeping safe and your souls fulfilled !
Hiya guys! After my unavoidable hiatus with rather infrequent drawing practice sessions, I've been taking the opportunity to get back into my daily drawing habit, trying to regain fluidy and skills I feel had gone rather rusty after last year.
Still working on it but meanwhile here is one of my latest figural drawings!
(p.s. Included in Artfinder's 'Best of February' Collection!!)
Guess What! Artfinder is currently having a FREE SHIPPING promo this weekend, so if you're thinking of adding this or any artpiece to your collection, now's the time!!
Thanks for dropping by! :)
Vine charcoal was the perfect medium in helping to create this soft toned atmospheric piece.
