My first true love - consisting of nothing but a pencil and a piece of paper. No still life here. Just some sketching from my imagination, memory, some referencing and random doodling. All in good fun, there is no good excuse (admittedly I've been guilty) not to find the time for something so simple that makes you so happy!
Figure Drawing has been a challenging, yet fun and very rewarding experience for me. While there are endless possibilities for improvement, it has enhanced my skills as an artist by learning to gauge proportion, assess space more accurately, and draw quicker.
For me, painting has proven to be a personal and individual activity. Using mostly acrylic and gouache paint, I’ve found that form of expression inevitably shows through and it becomes therapeutic in a sense… even when painting nothing but tiny dots with only tints/shades of red, yellow and blue.
Charcoal / Pastel
Drawing with charcoal and pastel gives a different kind of freedom to create anything from strong and fixed to light and fluid. I had fun getting messy, while having the ease of being able to render highlights, shadows and mid tones with this softer media.
Enjoy a collection of photographs primarily focusing on nature and located in Savannah, GA. It’s tough not to find beauty in this unique, historic city. Aside from preserving memories, photography has allowed me to see things I may not have noticed otherwise, with the whole concept of time not stopping and all.
