These are my versions of a rendering assignment I give my illustration students as a means to learn some quick Copic marker and Prismacolor skills. The ray gun designs/diagrams are from the 1950s. I made mine lemon-limony and bubble gum pink!
I have always been fascinated by fish and have drawn them from time to time. Here are some little multi-media sardines that I started yesterday in my sketchbook. (Media used includes rice paper, glue, ink, watercolor, colored pencil, marker and a self-inking rubber stamp.)
I have been seeing a lot of apples in paintings lately and decided to mess around with one myself. Last spring I had some of my students draw a circle and figure out a composition inside that circle. I guess this is my solution to the assignment using watercolor and colored pencil.
This was my view on a beautiful September evening as I sat on the Old Faithful Lodge porch with my sketchbook and watercolors. (The mountains and sky were done in colored pencil.) It was wonderful experience to visit Yellowstone as nature prepares her for the upcoming winter.
Today is closing day for the The Grand Old Lady and she will sleep for the winter while waiting for her new visitors next spring.
