Playing Catch Up

I’ve been in the wonderful habit of painting more than posting. Here’s a watercolor from a few weeks ago. My reference can be found in this /r/redditgetsdrawn thread.

Cupcakes are the New Bacon

Every once and a while a certain food becomes in style. It is odd that foods trend. A cupcake eaten in 2002 tastes no better than a cupcake tasted today. Nevertheless, cupcakes are in vogue. So cheers to cupcakes! Bacon had the spotlight for way too long.

Summer in Asbury Park

Went to another Asbury Park session of Dr. Sketchy’s. Their branch is the most active I’ve encountered, averaging two events a month. Being by the Jersey shore on Memorial Day weekend feels good, overall it was an awesome day. Our skilled models were Luna Chase, Sabrina Combs, and Ryan Giampietro. The theme was Frank Frazetta.

As always, click to enlarge the images.

Four Seasons in Philadelphia

This week, I finished the final watercolor in my Rittenhouse Square series. All four paintings were created on site, outdoors in Philly. It started in spring. My paints dried quickly in summer. I’m quite proud of fall. Winter was warm this year.

Be There.

Skinny People

I struggle with drawing people who are clinically underweight. It seems no matter who I draw, they end up smaller than in real life. If said person starts small, they end up absurdly tiny. This is something I need to work on. All people are beautiful, and I should be able to portray them accurately.

The Camera Adds Ten Pounds. Watercolor and ink on cotton paper. 6″ x 5.5″ (15.2cm x 14cm).

Freshly Painted

Sometimes, when I can’t sleep, I just lie in bed and worry about silly things that never seem to matter much in the morning. Other times, when I can’t sleep, I get out of bed and paint instead.

Midnight Issues. Watercolor, ink, salt, and worries on paper. 6″ x 5.5″.

Unframed: $200.00

Sketchy Dames

I try to keep my sketchbook exclusively to drawings from life, but sometimes pretty women just slip out.
