Roy



Wow, I haven't posted forever. I have lots of things to post...just haven't gotten around to it. I have a real studio now, so that's exciting. Here is a recent watercolour based on a photo. I used Photoshop to clean it up a bit.

Grandpa

My Grandpa passed away recently and I did this portrait (watercolour on gesso) of him with his classic gin and tonic in one of the old glasses with stars and moons on them. Love you Grandpa.

Life Drawing



These are a couple of drawings I did for a charity show and sale. They are scanned from printed-out scans in a booklet, so apologies if the quality is not 100% (I didn't get to keep any originals). Originally they were done with ball-point pen. I like drawing from life with pens because it makes me concentrate that much harder.

New Stuff


Watercolour on gessoed paper, 8.5"x11"

Watercolour on gessoed wood, 9.5"x6.5"

Detail

This one is acrylic on canvas, and isn't new, but I hadn't documented it until now and wanted to share it. I did it a couple years ago.
Soon I would like to try some larger scale watercolour paintings on paper or wood.

Some Drawings...




...I did last spring. The top one is of my brother, and the lower one is of a boy from Bolivia.

New Painting



I'm doing a large painting of this scene which can be found on Highway 104 just after exit 5. I'm not sure what these towers are for, but they've always intrigued me. This is watercolour on gessoed paper and the large painting will be acrylic. I just did this to get an idea of the direction I want to take.
Now that I've moved and have settled in, I will be updating this blog more frequently!
