Poppy Field at Sunset

Filed under: PAINTINGS — Colby @ 9:02 pm

It is what it is: a¬†painting I really didn’t want to do in the first place and didn’t want to continue once it was¬†started. But I was determined to struggle through. I finally reached a point where I thought, “I’m done.”

These are exercise drawings I did several years ago. I was just practicing.

I rarely (almost never) draw the same subject twice but I decided to draw this again using a more free style with chalk pastels. I never quite finished.

Giraffe Rider

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 2:54 pm

Archives: 1970? This is a sketch of my daughter as a toddler. I did not like the drawing because it didn’t capture her as I wished. I stored it away. About three years later when her little brother was about that age the drawing looked more like him than it did her.
