Blog : In Art Pursuit

I enjoy drawing, painting, and sculpting from direct observation - both in the studio and plein air. I also like to experiment with different tools and techniques. Following my blog will allow you to see examples of my work in progress and read about what was happening as I made them.

Life Drawing of Dalawn in China Marker

Drew Dalawn last night with china marker. Lighting was a compromise between sculptors and painters. Between the highlights on his forehead and the darkest shadows of his hair, there were a full range of values. I considered removing the tan line from his arm, but only for a moment. I was more interested in drawing what I was seeing.
