Today I put aside my normal Nicolaides exercise and Fandom Fitness drawing for a relaxing day of art.
Today I finished the Hogwarts castle and started some exercises from Kimon Nicolaides’s book The Natural Way to Draw.
I’m trying to describe more with less but I find myself getting way too detailed on these drawings.
Today I’m starting a new Fandom Fitness drawing of Hogwarts Castle from the Harry Potter movies.
I had a lot of fun drawing this tree and starting super detailed.
The last of the series finished and finished well!
This is the last painting in the series but I don’t think it will be the last gouache landscape I do. I’ve had a lot…
Even though I was having a lot of trouble keeping on task today I still finished this painting and got 2 hours of art in…
I’ve finished the fourth painting and started on the fifth. It’s a very productive day!
I’ve had a very productive day today, but not on art unfortunately. I only spent about an hour painting today.
I really like how these paintings are turning out. At first they don’t look so good but after some details they are really vibrant.
This one is of Mt Baker as seen from the Heliotrope Ridge trail.
I’m very happy with the improvements I’ve made over yesterday on the first painting and I like the second even better.
It’s a bit late in the game but I got inspired to do some Christmas / snowy themed landscape paintings for gifts.
I’m excited to start some new things on my website so I decided to start working on that today but it took up much more…
I’m getting a bit burned out on Patrick’s painting so I’m setting up a larger study of Mt Shuksan.
I’m trying to go from what I remember of the mountain the last time were were there and my memory is much different than the…
I was just trying a zoomed in version of this study today and wanted to keep everything very loose with not much detail.
I kept asking myself “why not” through this painting and trying subtle differences from all the other studies.
The fourth study painting of Mt Shuksan in the series and I like this one a lot but I’m not sure it’s ready for a…
The third study painting of Mt Shuksan in the series and it may be the worst yet, but it has some good things also.
The second study painting of Mt Shuksan in a series of paintings that I don’t know how long I will continue with, maybe 50.
I’m starting a new series of studies with the same subject, Mt Shuksan. Eventually I hope to turn what I learn into a large painting.
Working a bit on Patrick’s orange shirt. Trying to achieve these vibrant oranges is difficult.
