Another interesting exercise at the the art academy was the quick paintings with watercolors, without any details, in order to loosen up. The following examples of my “quickies” are based on calendar photos:
What a great feeling of accomplishment to see all the 30 paintings of the last month! So here is the collage to give you a nice overview as well. As mentioned in the beginning, my goal was to combine it with the homework for art academy. Therefore they are all drawings, mostly with graphite, some with ink or fine-liner, some with red chalk, sepia and or coal and two just for fun on the iPad. Several were portraits for the JKPP (Julia Kay’s Portrait Party) on Flickr. All of them were done to improve my drawing abilities and provided good practice for me.
These drawings will not be posted on any website for sale. However, if you would like any of them, I am willing to part with them for a symbolic fee and postage. Just shoot me an email.
My apologies but there is not much from our art course suitable for posting here. So, for today I can show you some landscape sketches and some still life drawings. Hopefully there will be more worthwhile drawings tomorrow.
