I’ve wanted to do a portrait of Beverly for the past nine years but just couldn’t build up the courage. I was finally able to accomplish a quick and simple sketch on my iPad Pro.

Horny Toad

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 8:32 am

As a kid growing up in central Texas we called them horny toads. Other folks call them horned toads, horned frogs or horned lizards or maybe something else. Despite their rough appearance they were very docile and fun to play with. They’re hard to find nowadays. I am told it’s because their main source of food, the red ant, has been driven out by civilization.

I drew this while practicing on my iPad.

Girl with Long Hair

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 2:33 pm

This was done on my iPad Pro using the “pencil” tool in Adobe Sketch. It is actually a detail of a larger drawing which includes nudity so I cropped that out.

From Dark Ages to Renaissance

Filed under: History,PAINTINGS,Religious — Colby @ 7:46 am

With 2017 being the 500th year of the still-ongoing Reformation of the Christian church I thought it appropriate to do a painting of Martin Luther, the guy given most of the credit for starting it all.

My goal was to illustrate how this movement helped bring the world from the stark, black and white of the Dark Ages into the color of the Renaissance. But there is also the hint of flames and smoke because with every great advance the world is also set afire.
