Even though I love watercolor art I haven’t used that media in decades, maybe since college. I decided to give it a try. I looked in the cabinet and found a typical, school art class tray of Crayola watercolors; 8 colors. The box has my son’s name on it. I’m not sure if it’s from his high school days or junior high.

This is not a new cartoon but I don’t think I’ve shared it on this site. I post it now because a lot of charities, churches, etc. go through their fiscal stewardship efforts this time of the year.

One of the basic coordination skills to learn early in life – putting on glasses.

Experimenting again with oil pastels (fancy crayons). I intentionally chose a rough blending method.

Me in 1830

Here’s an example of modern day doodling – a quick sketch on my iPad using “Sketch Pro.” While working as an extra on a history-based documentary I took a selfie of myself in costume. (I stood behind President Andrew Jackson while he signed some historical document.) A few days later I sat in my lazy-boy with iPad in lap and came up with this just for fun and practice.

Tug of War

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 11:47 am

This drawing is actually three drawings; a triptych, so to speak, depicting children involved in the classic tug-of-war, with the usual variety of success, failure, and enthusiasm.

Put side by side it would look something like this:
