Lisa Gets Caught

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 10:06 am

I was feeling the urge to draw but I didn’t have much time. I have absolutely NO IDEA why this popped into my head. But I went with it.

IMO – this is one of the most chilling movie scenes of all times.

Girl in Red Shoes

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 10:00 am

I’m still learning to use my Apple Pen on my iPad. I conjured up this. No reason. No purpose. Just practicing. Why red tennis shoes? I don’t know. Why not?

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.

Red Smudge

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 4:55 pm

I have no idea how old this is. I recently discovered it in my file. Over the years the chalk has been smudged. Not the original intent in this sketch but I think it adds a nice touch to an otherwise simple drawing.

Another oldie. I haven’t had a chance to draw and paint lately. I’ve been keeping my grandkids. And loving every minute of it.
