Drawing a Honeybee
Here is a drawing of a honeybee that I have been working on. I heightened it with white chalk and white gouache.
Drawing and Painting Boats in Maine
Taking a family trip up to Maine, with my wife and four kids. We're so excited. My whole life, I have always loved painting old, commercial fishing boats and sailboats. Where we currently live on the south shore of Long Island, there are fewer and fewer commercial fishing boats, which makes me sad. But up in Maine, there are the most amazing lobster boats slumbering away in harbors, trawling boats, tuna boats, etc. I am bringing my easel and drawing material, and will upload pictures of me, drawing and painting away on these works. I'll also be recording some video content, for a few lessons on drawing outdoors. It'll specifically be dealing with objects in landscapes, and how to paint tricky subjects like water. I can't wait to record and upload this content! I am attaching here a few drawings and paintings that I've done through the years, in the commercial fishing harbor near my house. I thought that everyone might enjoy. Some of these paintings are big in size and highly developed, others are just small, quick sketches done in an hour or so. I hope you enjoy.
Livestream drawing this week- "A Llama"
I thought you guys might have fun seeing my drawing, I worked on it a bit more, after our livestream today. I use so much to draw- my hands to smudge big areas, sharp pencils to indicate sharp areas such as the bone of the nose, and a blending stump to softly render areas like the lower eye. I sometimes even draw with an eraser, though it is kinda like drawing in reverse- I pulled out the light fur, by erasing away into the dark. It was a blast. I enjoyed drawing this guy, as he seemed to be half laughing. It's always so fun to work with all of you, I'm looking forward to the next drawing we do together!
