All posts by Pencil Art by Tim

I am a self taught artist who for lack of a better term considers myself to be an abstract artist. I love to dabble in all mediums and all types of subject matter. I especially love to add a little whimsy to many of my creations. I hope you enjoy my blog Inspire Arts as well as my companion blog

#506 Picking Flowers

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.


#504 Flat Tire

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.

#503 Standing by the Flower

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.

#500 and 501 White Flower Two Mediums

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.
