Kingdom of dragonflies - finished


I finished my colored pencil of dragonfly and waterlilly. The title is "Kingdom of dragonflies". A bold and lush drawing with details to be found among plants and insects.
I like the kind of feminine and pretty look of this drawing

Dragonfly and waterlilly - wip



Due to having a new kitchen set up in my home, I have not had space, time or the peace to draw.
Even not drawing for many days does makes me very restless, the whole process has been upsetting with delayes, changes and other annoying issues.

Now I have my drawingtable back in place, so even the kitchen is not finnished, I can go back to drawing.

Here is a shot of it :)

Dragonfly and waterlily - wip


I started with colors. Been so long since I worked with those colored pencils. Too long - I enjoy the slow process of layering ☺

Dragonfly and waterlilly - wip



I am working on a new drawing. You can see my thumbnail at bottom on the ring-bound pad. When doing thumbnail(s) I play around with composition and sometimes values.

Next I scanned and printed the thumbnail (top right), but I found the composition was not as I wanted. This will be a stylized drawing, so I take my artistic freedom to make the flower quite large. I also cut out the dragonfly and moved him around. I finally decided to place him in the opposite side. So final sketch will be the drawing upper left (I think - sometimes I do change bits).

Now I will start transferring the sketch to my drawingpaper. I will draw freehand with just a simple cross of guidelines.

PencilArtSociety Show online



The show from PAS is online: http://pencilartsociety.com/shows/ipas2017/gallery.html  I am happy to be in this good company of excellent artists. I am a little dissapointed with the format of the gallery, as all artwork in horisontal view is so small...hope the PAS will change this for future shows. But I show you my entry here, to be viewed more closely  "Au revoir Tournesol"

Brown bear - wip finished




I have finished my watercolor-painting of Brown bear. Obviously in a loose style. The image looses a bit of brightness on screen, but sure you can se delicate layers, hard and soft edges and beautiful hues.
Painting this way it is always an issue when to keep layering and when to stop. At least thats how I feel.
The image is 30x40 cm on watercolor canvas.

Brown bear - wip


Yum-yum - working with wonderful watercolors. Its a balance to keep the paint bright and transparent, but also get darker values without getting too muddy. So I work layer-on-layer.

I paint on watercolor-canvas. This is bought ready-to-paint on, but I am also going to try to use Golden Absorbant ground, to make these canvas' myself.

The reference is one of many great shots I took of brown bears in Scandinavian Zoo some years ago.
