Apologies...Momentary Pause

Hey everyone,

Sorry about the dry spell in the posts. I have had a ton of things come up in the past few weeks and to top it all laptop dies. Needless to say I have not had access to a computer to post any new work and unfortunately there will continue to be a drought until I can figure out a way to get a new computer without breaking the bank. Hopefully I'll be back soon. Thanks for stopping by.

More Digital Painting

I took a look at that rough sketch I did before bed and decided to flush it out a bit. This is what I have so far. I'm not really happy with it right now, but I'll keep at it and see what I can pull off.

A visit to the AGO

I paid a visit to the Art Gallery of Ontario yesterday to do some drawing. I came out with a study from a Ruben's painting. I'm still struggling with the anatomy of the body, but this study was a great help in helping me move forward.

A little painting before bed...

Here's a quick painting I did to capture an idea I had before I head to bed. I figured this would be a good point as any to start capturing the ideas that have been coming and going all summer. The true test or surprise is whether I can tell what I painted when I wake up tomorrow morning...we'll see :)

More Fun Times Life Drawing at the TSA

Here are some drawings from my morning open life drawing session at the Toronto School of Art. I have started to use an even thicker marker and the experience has been a lot of fun so far. As I get more accustom to it I'll hopefully be able to really play with what it can do and take it to extremes.

Here is a quick paint for my next post for gnarled nubs. It was a play off one of the other posts that had been submitted. Not sure if I'll take this one any further, but we'll see. Enjoy the dinosaur goodness.

Back to Painting

I completed the below painting for a weekly challenge for the "gnarled nubs" blog. Its been a while since I tried to paint, digitally or otherwise, so it was quite the struggle to plow through the rust. Regardless though it was lots of fun and satisfying to get back to digitally painting.
