Not Suitable for Children

Not Suitable for Children
Christmas this year and the world seems darker. You cant suppose that things will work out.  We will all have to work harder at making this a better place.

Landscape ink

Landscape ink
Landscape study in ink.  Done with a biro then I found my brush pen about two thirds through.  Learning here for me was the importance of grouping values.  Was somewhat OK in the foreground and background but middle became muddied with no clear textures. The ink is unforgiving to those who do not plan.

Random practice

bug




Did not work on a big piece last week but have started something this week.  In the meantime I am still practicing.  One thing that is becoming obvious is that my linework in traditional is way ahead of the tablet. Something to think about.

Repairs


Repairs
Been working on this on and off for the last few weeks. 

The inspiration came from this image  by Ferdinand Bol.  He worked in Rembrandts studioJust wanted to try and catch some emotion.  I tried to polish as much as possible but ran out of steam.
