Sketch of Beverly

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.

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.

Girl with Arm Raised

Found art. This is a really old one. I think I did this in college. It’s a tiny one. Only about 3 ½” high.

Larry in a Yellow Hat

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 12:56 pm

This is the choir director at Central Lutheran Church in Dallas. His talent constantly amazes me. He has taken a guy like me, who doesn’t know anything about music, to a guy who is now well aware how much he doesn’t know about music.

This drawing was based on a photo taken during the dedication of my wife’s memorial garden and labyrinth.

I recently re-discovered this drawing from way back. I assumed I had already posted it but couldn’t find it. So, I’ll do it now.
