Panty 2

I had been very unproductive and forced myself to draw something to keep my sanity. I hadn’t used chalk pastels in awhile so I decided to give that a shot.

Restful Arms

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 12:16 pm

While collecting photographs to accompany my song “Four Little Hearts” I came across a really cute one showing a sleeping baby, her proud “Mimi” and a smiling big brother. They’re all sitting on a porch swing. I decided to draw a detail of the photo focusing just on the baby resting comfortably in her grandmother’s arms.

Normally when I do a pencil drawing I rely on a single pencil and maybe some white to highlight. For this drawing I used a range of grays, utilizing 5 or 6 separate pencils; no black.

A quick sketch of Senta Berger. It isn’t a very good likeness but she was so beautiful that even a bad picture of her comes out just fine.

Don’t just look at titles and labels. Read the descriptions as well.

Las Palmas

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 10:32 am

It’s summer so I decided to post a vacation drawing. One of those relaxing vacations – just sit around and don’t do much. Lots of lollygaggin’. With sketchpad on my lap I took the time to sketch the walkway over the dunes to the beach. This is on Galveston Island, Texas.

It’s Greek To Me

Filed under: Uncategorized — Colby @ 8:05 pm

Yet another college class assignment; exploring etching/printing. I’ll let you look at it first before I tell you what it is.


I chose to use the Greek letters of the fraternity I was in. Sigma Lambda Chi. Don’t look it up. You’ve never heard of it. It was a local fraternity and I’m told it no longer exists. But we’re having our annual reunion so I dug this up.
