Sketches from 2008

While perusing some old artwork I came across these gems.

They were all completed in an inexpensive dollar-store mid-tone sketchbook which I can only imagine became disheveled and is long gone.

These pieces, which I must have liked at the time (and still do) were tucked away for safe keeping.  They appear to be done in a combination of ink, coloured pencil and watercolour and were all completed en plein air at my parent’s farm in the Interlake region of Manitoba; except for the one with the elf-like creature having a smoke.  I have no idea where the inspiration for that one came about.

TV’s “Grace & Frankie” Fan art: Coloured Pencil

Above is a sketch of Frankie, played by the talented Lily Tomlin, from the TV show “Grace & Frankie.” The illustration  is done in Laurentien coloured pencils (or pencil crayons, as some may say).  Yes, the same coloured pencils that I used all through elementary school.

I found them a little difficult to blend and after a while the tooth of the paper would not accept any more pigment.  While I do not think I will be completing any masterpiences with the Laurentien coloured pencils,  I will be using them again.  After all, I have a huge tub full; waste not, want not.
