More fruit

Here's another work in progress of some apples in oils using a limited palette. Plus two quick watercolours character concepts for 'Floristen & Grodan'.

Illustrations

Two watercolour illustrations made for my portfolio. Still experimenting, these were made on a sheet of coldpressed paper that I stretch by wetting it and stapling it to a board. I'm going to do the next one on a hotpressed sheet and try to get smoother look/value transitions.

The first is 39x29 cm, the other 18x42.





Arm study


This is another study I did at school. It's about 80 x 30 cm and was my first large painting using oils.
Titanium White, Ivory black and Raw umber on Linen canvas no. 66 From Claessens.

Watercolour

I like to paint with watercolours. These are made on a hot pressed Watercolour Block 
from Sennelier that I picked up in Prague during a trip. The outline is made with crow quill pen and ink.

More school work

I finally finished my big cast and I'm moving on to oil painting now! 
This one is about 100 x 60 cm, white conté chalk and charcoal on toned paper. 
It took over 2 months to complete.

























After I finished the big cast I drew this cast to learn to be more efficient.
I put in about 30 hours into this one.

This is a thumbnail for a school assignment with the theme "The witch's Initiation".
I tried to do the final piece in watercolour but failed miserably.

Bird 2.0



Scanned this old sketch and made a high resolution version that 
I'm going to print someday.

Ink


I found an old school assignment when I was cleaning out our
old studio today. The theme for the assignment was "Age of aquarius".
It was my first try at inks, I used a mix of Sepia and Burnt Sienna 
from Rohrer & Klingner on Coldpressed Watercolour Block (140lb) from
Arches.

Doodle




I had some time to play today.


Birds

After long days drawing casts and nude people this 
is what comes out when I get home.







































These were my favourite pencils at the time, its charcoal mixed
with oil so they are a bit waxy and I like the slippery
feeling on the paper.

Stuff from school



This was my second cast in charcoal, at some point the teachers thought I 
should trash it and start over because I was struggling too much with the drawing. 
Now it's probably my favourite. It's Beethoven's death mask. Spooky.
A mouth cast done in chalk and charcoal on toned paper.
The finished version has a smoother gradient in BG, I promise.
A horse done in charcoal on Canson Mitents paper.
I use Grumbacher charcoal and some HB Nitram. On this one
I also used a charcoal pen that allowed me to go
really dark in the BG, but in the end I didn't like the waxy look it created.
(so...no I'm not a professional photographer as you might think I am looking
at the picture quality of this)


An early stage of a cast sculptor Max Patte made for some movie,
maybe Narnia I don't know. It's really cool though.
This stage is the most critical, if you get this right the rendering
is actually quite easy.
























This guy is huge.

*If you're interested in getting a strong foundation in traditional drawing (and painting), I couldn't recommend this school more.
