Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

Life Drawings, Short Studies

Five, ten or fifteen minutes is not a long time in which to do a drawing. Shorter poses are more simplified than the longer ones.

I like them, especially for the movement which is difficult for the model in longer poses. It's a good challenge to draw quickly to capture the lines of the body, masses of shadow with the charcoal, and some highlights with the white chalk.

Contact me if you'd like to buy these 18"x12" drawings on grey paper, $65 each plus S&H.
