Some anatomy sketches

Self-Portrait #15


This is what happens when I get ahold of my son’s graph paper for his science project.

Colored Pencil Drawing

A quick sketch; colored pencils on black construction paper.



This is a preliminary sketch for a painting I may or may not end up doing. I sometimes (but not always) sketch out my painting ideas ahead of time, to figure out placement and values.

Colored Pencil and Charcoal Portrait

This is something that’s been sitting in my sketchbook for awhile. I started out by drawing a bunch of rectangles on the page one day but couldn’t figure out what to do with them. So I just left the page like that. Then I came back a few weeks later and drew the swimmer in with some colored pencils. Thought it might make an interesting idea for a painting one day, but I never followed through on it.

Self-Portrait #9

On a whim, I picked up some colored pencils yesterday. When I can’t think of anything to draw, I just practice on my own face.
