Taking my nice, expensive camera along for a ride with my turpentine, oil paints, mucky brushes and bulky easel is not something I plan on doing. But everyone has been asking me, well a very reasonable question – what kinda things have you been painting?? One day I’ll be brave and bring my camera with me to the studio but for today, I’m sticking with photographing some of the smudge free, harmless pen, pencil and marker doodles from my sketchbook. (Sorry).
Doing a study of Chinese landscape painting. I found a lot of similarities to the patterns in Art Nouveau paintings and so I’m trying to make something that combines them both.
I will ALWAYS go back to Gustav Klimt because this man was a plain genius.
The first day of landscape drawing I was too chicken to bring out the paints so I settled for hassle-free markers. Mt. St. Victoire. Picasso’s house is here and his grave.
Did a painting of this motif this morning and froze my ass off.
Drunk guys in a French painting that I copied.
Sorry for the bad lighting on these. My room is looking like this right now and I’m too tired to do something about it.
