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.

Rainbow Guy

This is what happens when you let your grandson play on your iPad Pro. I think it’s pretty cool so I decided to share.

Grand Memories – Toy Box

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 1:57 pm

A few years ago I was commissioned to do illustrations for a book titled, Creating Grand Memories – A Toolbox for Today’s Grandparents by Becky Yates and Charlotte Barnhart. I don’t think it’s available anymore. My line drawings were placed at the beginning of each chapter. I decided to, when possible, use photos from my own family as sources. I won’t post all seven drawings at once. I’ll span them out over a few weeks.

This first one, the toy box, was actually taken from a time when my grandson and I were “licking the bowl.” You can see an original drawing of that at Licking the Bowl with GrandDad. I haven’t lost that much hair yet but I’m working on it. The girl in this image is just a random kid for composition and diversity.

This drawing was also used for the cover of the book so I did a color version.

Four Peaks

My daughter requested this painting. It’s a view of Four Peaks Mountains as seen from Piestewa Peak in Arizona near Phoenix. She and my son-in-law got engaged during a hike there.

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.
