Gave Faber-Castell PITT pens one more try. A few years ago they seemed not to be dark enough, but things change with time, right? Not these ones, though… Ok, no big deal, I will stick with Derwent Graphik.
The blacks are ink, all shades of gray are charcoal including grays over blacks. I hoped for a different result, but it’s just a small sketch, so not a big deal. I will get where I want with the next version.
I am excited to have my drawings in the Three Rivers Gallery & Gifts through March and April. The gallery is located inside the cozy Singer Hill Cafe in Oregon City. The gallery is hung salon style and offers paintings, drawings, ceramics, jewelry, and about anything you can think of. The cafe serves excellent coffee […]
It started with a reference photo of majestic icicles which I managed to lose shortly after mapping some details in pencil. Not willing to dig through my huge and badly documented collections of shots taken over 15+ years, I decided to continue on my own and see where it ends. Somehow it ended in an […]
This last little drawing completes the “Gathering” series. It going to be a while before I want to anything other than single drawings. The original ($80.00) and prints are available in my online shop as a part of the “Pen and ink” collection. See the first four pieces in this series:
I will have two of my older pieces at the San Jose Bridge Center from January 27 till April 28, 2015: There will be no reception for this show. The San Jose Bridge Center is located at 1300 White Oak, Suite 103, Campbell, CA.
Trying out new artist pens that I got for the New Year. They are Sharpy Stylo and Pigma Micron pens. So far, Micron ones win with a little finer lines and more steady ink flow (that’s the left and center leaves).
The fourth piece in the “Gathering” series got no horses, it is dedicated to the beauty of many rock patterns. I think I will do the final piece the same way, without any representative images. Most comments that I get about this series is about the beauty of rocks themselves it seems fitting to get […]
I will have a few pen and ink pieces in this show: If you are in the area, stop by for the opening reception on December 5th, starting at 7 pm. HARK! 9th annual holiday exhibit & sale is open from December 5th, 2014 through January 16, 2015. KALEID gallery is located at 88 S 4th St, […]
Updated: October 26, 2014 It’s finished. I like how it turned out more than the first two pieces in the series. The original ($80.00) and prints are available in my online shop as a part of the “Pen and ink” collection. Updated: October 17, 2014 So most of my ideas are not suitable for small […]
I had a different look and feel in mind when I started this sketch, and to add to that I grabbed some odd oil chalks (not even sure what that might be, it feels like something between a wax based colored pencil and an oil pastel stick) instead of normal pastels for coloring. The result […]
As busy as this year’s Silicon Valley Open Studios were, I managed to snatch up some time for drawing. The result is the second piece in the “Gatherings” series that was finished yesterday a couple of hours before the last day of Open Studios in front of the Cupertino Library was over. Thank you everybody […]
Commission a similar drawing This one started as an exercise after I haven’t done any pointillism in more than a year. In the process of getting the feel of the pen again I began to see a composition in the bunch of rock textures and from that point treated the small drawing more seriously. The […]
New Spring I and New Spring II will be part of the inaugural Art Wall Display with the theme “Spring Fever.” Of the 25 FALC members with more than 50 artworks, 8 artists were chosen, and 11 pieces will be shown from March 31 till June 30, 2009. Reception: Friday, April 3, 7:00-9:00 p.m. Address: […]
