From the serious to the whimsical, here is some of my work from the past month. As mentioned in my previous post I had the opportunity to attend a class with Painter Jim Robinson at the Art Academy in Saint Paul. Mr. Robinson focuses on teaching the traditional methods used by the Old Masters.
|Field Study - Graphite, Ink and Watercolors|
Precise drawing, to foundational underpainting, Mr. Robinson's methods are designed to equip the Amateur and the Professional alike with tools that raise the quality of their work. I learned several new techniques from Mr. Robinson and am thankful to have had the opportunity to study under him. I plan to return to his studio in the next semester to learn more.
Lot's of fun and memories associated with these drawings. I draw at many locations, from coffee shops, malls and the local zoo, to outdoor locations. I love drawing and painting on-site.
I spend a lot of time these days sketching with my friend and fellow Artist Larry Ehrlich. Here is a link to his Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/ehrlichart/
