Mod Bod with Gold

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 1:26 pm

I found this oldie in the files. I think I did it in the 1970s. Maybe earlier. Very random. Mostly gold, sparkly paint on fabric covered cardboard.

Fence Line Road

Filed under: PAINTINGS — Colby @ 9:36 am

On my frequent drives to Houston I pass by an area that I think is interesting. There is a flat pasture where cattle graze. Immediately beside it is a hilly wooded area. A dirt road runs at the edge of the woods, separating the contrasting landscapes. The road follows the contour of the hills just a few feet from a steep embankment created by leveling for the pasture.

Inspiration can be strange because when I made up the image to paint, it not only doesn’t really look like what I see as I drive by but is a bird’s eye view.

Leslie

French-American dancer and actress Leslie Caron.

I was thinking of a strong line running through the middle with just enough thinner detail to identify the person. I think the center lines could have been thicker; could have been fewer thin lines.

Palm Tree

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 8:53 am

I was driving in traffic and saw a landscape company truck with a logo of a tree with big giant leaves. The leaves looked like hands to me.  When I got home  I sketched this out on my iPad.

Mary Kornman

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 8:10 am

I was watching an old John Wayne movie and the girl-interest was Mary Kornman. I looked her up and discovered she had been one of the Little Rascals of The Our Gang series. I found a photo of her I thought was precious and decided to draw her.
