WIPs, Life & Little Bits

Unfortunately, I'm having one of those weeks where the things I draw REALLY aren't matching the visions in my head. I know I'll get these "imagined" paintings right at some point, but it won't be this week!

In the meantime, I fiddled about with a group of girls chatting away at a club (that you can't see yet!). Maybe I'll come back and finish it. For now (and maybe forever), it's a WIP.

I like the color scheme though. I spent some time looking at the gorgeous palettes over at www.colorlovers.com and spied this one that reminded me of candy floss. I added in some browns for a bit more variation. If I don't finish this painting, then I might take those same colors for another painting.

I made some decent drawings at the life drawing session today. This is one of them though I really have to remember to take my photos during the day, not at night when I want to post... even with the ugly yellow flash color distorting the image. Ah well. She still looks the same I figure.



While playing Call of Cthulhu tonight, I managed to ink up an old man and then added some color with markers and a dash of acrylic paint. I'll probably stick him in someone's Deco or maybe in one of my own. Maybe splash some found poetry or a quote over top of him.

All of the images are clickable. I stuck up small versions here to squish it all into one post. Happy PPF. :)

  9. Great characters ! I love the palette for the Club Girls and the idea of adding a poem to the crinkly old man. Happy PPF !

  10. Of all forms of art figure drawing is my favourite. Despite your photography problems your drawing is lovely, and such a nice pose to draw. Love the girls and worry about your elderly friend - he looks drawn (in psychological terms) and worried. It will be interesting to see what your poem is like when it comes to your mind.

  11. Wonderful drawings! I do like the color palette you have in the girls painting. I can identify with the not getting the image from your head onto the paper/canvas. My last month has been a lot like that. Happy PPF!

  25. Some weeks our visions just don't match our work - been there. I absolutely love the old man-you did a fabulous job there. I agree about the girls - the color scheme reminds me of colored illustrations I would find in books when I was a kid. The life figure is wonderful even in the night photo.

  26. I can relate to those days when things in my head dont match that which my hand creates :) I actually like the photo taken at night, especially when it is enlarged. It looks like a fun and productive week. Have a good weekend.

  30. Wonderful paintings - I think it is so much harder to paint from your imagination! I am SO much more comfortable with the scene in front of me! LOVE your life drawing - her pose is so expressive and would also make a fabulous painting!
