Bar taps, painting ideas, and a big-boned kid.

Goodness gracious, finally a sketch actually done while sitting in a bar. ūüôā¬† This was done Thursday night at the Blarneystone while waiting for a few friends to show up.¬†

Next is a pencil doodle done while sitting through a section meeting…

Last, but not least, well, maybe least, is a couple of visual notes I jotted down during a unit meeting for one of the oil paintings I’m working on.¬† (A few blog posts before this, you’ll see a photolog of what the painting looked like in the first few stages…..these doodles are vague ideas on what to do with the rest of the space.)

I’ll see if I can take some more pictures this weekend to show where the painting is at now (plus, some photos of the old Alexis and Kiely painting that I’ve started working on again).

BTW, if you’re looking for life-drawing classes in the Baltimore area besides Dr. Sketchy’s (link at the right), you might want to check out the classes¬†hosted by John Brewer for The Charcoal Club.¬† The Charcoal Club has been around for about 130 years now and is a Baltimore institution….it’s ten bucks for 3 hours.¬† The have two sessions a week, Mondays and Wednesdays…one day is one long pose, the other day is a lot of short poses.¬† Sometimes they even have multiple models, which if you’ve done any of these things before, is a blessing and doubles the chances of you finding an angle you like.

Sometime in the next week I’ll make a link button for their page and put it in the right column.

Really old doodles and some link love.

More old doodles today…some of these are really, really old, probably going back to highschool.¬† (ie, I don’t even remember doing them)

The next one was a Borjun’s Tavern sketch….a top down view of the bar.¬† (I have no idea what the little guy at the bottom is.)

A sketch that later became a painting (the painting is in a previous entry somewhere….I don’t even remember there being a preliminary sketch, but apparently there was).

Lord knows what this was….

Hopefully I’ll get some painting done tonight or tomorrow.

BTW, I saw two blog posts on Drawn and Lines and Colors that you might find interesting.

First, Lines¬†and Colors had a post¬†on Charley Parker’s attempts to reproduce Rembrandt’s ink sketching techniques and the modern tools he’s using.¬† I highly recommend you go read it.

Second, Drawn has a post up about a free website where you can make your own fonts.¬† (It’s called YourFonts)¬† The site is getting hammered by site traffic at the moment, so if I was you I’d bookmark it and check it out when their traffic isn’t so high.
