The Art of Colby Jones

September 22, 2012


The announcement of the return of the Dallas Sidekicks and local sports icon Tatu as its co-owner and general manager reminded me of a drawing I did of Antonio Carlos Pecorari several years ago. It was done for a fund-raiser but the event fizzled out and I’ve still got the drawing. It now has Tatu’s autograph on it, not shown in the image below.

While looking through my “things to draw” folder I came across the photo I took of an intriguing looking drummer at one of those Renaissance-type festivals I visited last Spring. Even though I think I could have done much better using color pencils I was determined to use acrylics since it had been too long since the last time I picked up a brush.

I rarely use any black when painting but since her outfit was black and red I decided to be bold and give it a try. I’m still not a big fan of black. Oh well.
