Irish wolfhound

I am now nearly finished with the old door.

I have really enjoyed drawing the textures of stone and wood.

.... I still wait for a title to pop up in my head.

irish wolfhounds

The dogs are now emerging in front of the stones. Before I start drawing them I still have the door in right side.

Irish wolfhounds

Here is a view of more of my drawing. I am soon finished with the stonewall, next will be an old door placed to the right.

You can perhaps see I have started a little test of the ground-texture; gravel....
And you can see my outlines of the dogs.... very hairy breed!

I have been voted into a place in Guest Gallery International Artshow of Realism.
Votes are placed by the public. There was many entries, so this position makes me very proud.
My entry was "Mille - poodle"

... and more stones

I am still working on the wall with the smaller stones. I still have some work to do here. You can see my initial lay-out for one of dogs too. This is gonna be with irish wolfhounds..
You can read about my intentions with this image here.

By the way - very unusual for me - I do not have a title yet. Most often I have the title before I start drawing, but once in a while not so. I hope that one will pop-up while I am drawing.

More stones

I have started the smaller stones of the wall. (I do not know the english word for this kind of wall).

Stonewall 2

I was not quite satisfied with my first stone rendering.

Here I have lifted graphite to get a bit less texture, but still showing rough stone.

My second blog - pin-ups

Perhaps you didn't know that I also have a pin-up blog. It has been very quiet there, but I have recently drawn a lot more for my pin-up blog.

I draw whimsical pin-ups in an on-line drawing-program. You can see more on the blog. Even whimsical, pin-ups are proberly not for the narrow-minded.


I have started in upper left corner and worked my way down drawing an old stone-wall.
There are some distortion from the digital-shot.

Sketches for new series

I have begun what I intend to be the first drawing in a new series in graphite.

Dogs - or to be more excact - purebreed dogs, placed in an inviroment that relate to the specific breed.

I work for the first time on a paper called Mellotex bright white. It is a paper that Mike Sibley recommends for graphite. I am very curious how this paper is to draw on. My first impression is: smooth - very smooth. If not recommended I am sure, I would never have tried out this paper.

I have made some small initial texture examples to get a feeling of the paper. So far it seems fine. These are just small sketches though.
