My twist on an older painting I saw. I was trying to practice my observation skills…i.e learning to see things more for details than just looking. The drawing was done with a #2 pencil on an 8×10 white piece of paper and then the flowers were highlighted with color pencil. I am taking a course on studying the Bible and one of the things I learned is this read the passage, read round the passage, read the passage some more. Once you have done this go back and keep reading it until God and the Holy Spirit make it clear what you need to be learning from reading the passage. It is funny how art sometimes translates into life. In art you must, look, look and then look some more .until you see what needs to be created.
Another soft pastel painting done on an 8×11 inch book page. Once again I love an old book page as a canvas.
A simple pen drawing highlighted with Crayola Twistable Color Pencils. The drawing was done on 8×10 whit paper. The drawing while a lans ape drawing is also an abstract of a man pushing his broken bike up a hill. I would like like to says life is like the broken bike there are times we must push our broken bike relying on God to help us make our way.
An original abstract painting rendered in soft pastel on an 8×10 old book page. I love putting small paintings on old book pages. There is something about the yellowed paper which sets off each painting differently. This painting is of an old Tim toy standing next to a vase of flowers. I hope you enjoy the painting.
It is hard to say good-bye to loved ones who leave us. Their memories linger in our hearts and remember them in our hearts. This pastel drawing done an 8×10 old book page pays homage to these memories.
Well I’ve reached the midway point of my 1001 drawings/paintings challenge. The two paintings today are of the same flowers and are both done on 6×9 inch Strathmore paper. The flower on the left was painted in soft pastels which were then lightly brushed with water. The one on the right was done using oil pastels. I like certain aspects of both but just like life there are things I’d like to redo. I hope you like them.
I did one drawing of old tin toys on an old 8×11″ book page. This is number two done in color pencil and black pen. I have a couple more in the series to do.
