Howard

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 7:59 am

I had been neglecting my art. Made myself stop for a minute to doodle on my iPad. I chose this pose of Bryce Dallas Howard, Opie’s daughter. I don’t really think the sketch does her justice but I was in desperate need of artistic exercise.

Young Grace

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 1:35 pm

After doodling the drawing of Grace Kelly on my iPad my curiosity urged me to search the internet for more images of her. I came across one of her when she was younger. Less “refined” but still beautiful.

After being reminded of the movie, Rear Window, I fell in love (again) with Grace Kelly. I felt obligated to do a drawing of her on my iPad.

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.
