Here’s #4 in the series of graphite drawings I’m doing. I don’t feel as happy with this one as I do the others, but that’s alright. It still ties in well enough with the others stylistically and thematically. I don’t have much else to share. I’m just excited to start the next piece!
Progress has still been so slow with this one. It hurts. Particularly, the tree branches have been taking a long time to render. I believe once I finish those, I will be able to finish everything else pretty quickly. I hope so. I keep thinking of other things I want to draw and it really,Continue reading
Here’s a progress shot of where I’m at with the next drawing of the series. It’s a close up – there’s more to the piece, but I haven’t started those parts yet. I’m trying my best to hunker down and put my everything into making art. I’ve been feeling an undercurrent of anxiety about gettingContinue reading
Another graphite drawing of a deer. Lately, I’ve been thinking about what direction to go in with the deer art and have landed on the idea of doing a series of graphite drawings. Or at least I think. I change my mind a lot. I’ve just been longing to put something together that feels cohesiveContinue reading
Well 2020 is gone, but I don’t think I’ll quite feel a sense of a year having gone by until it’s March 13th, 2021 a.k.a 365 days since the lockdown in my state began. I think back to my life before that date and I have to say I lived a very charmed life. IContinue reading
Here’s a progress shot of the next piece I’m doing. It’s a graphite drawing of a little baby goth deer. I started it two days ago and have already made lots of progress! Maybe I can get it done by the end of this weekend? I guess that remains to be seen.
I’m all done with this drawing! I actually finished it a few days ago, but ended up noticing some issues with one of the bones that I’d been wanting to touch up and fix, so I did that today. I’ve got a number of deer sketches in progress, both for potential paintings and drawings. I’mContinue reading
Feeling happy. Healing is such a strange process. It was only two weeks ago that my breathing was still so labored, my chest so heavy. But now, just this last week, something has dramatically changed in my body again. For the first time in 2 months, I feel somewhat close to how I felt beforeContinue reading
I was feeling a little burnt out from painting so I decided to switch back to my favorite medium ever: graphite. I’m still on the deer train, though. And no idea when I’ll be off it. Maybe not for a while, ha. I was planning to do a series of 4 deer graphite drawings thisContinue reading
Well, I’ve decided to call it quits with this one. There’s more I could have done, but I’m feeling anxious to start the next deer painting! This is my first (and perhaps last, haha) time doing a primary color palette. It is tough! I’ve always leaned more towards monochromatic color palettes, so doing this feltContinue reading
