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.

A friend asked me to donate a painting to a children’s cancer charity. The charity is based in Iowa and holds an annual gala with a silent auction. They auction off a lot of University of Iowa and Iowa State sports memorabilia. Here’s what I came up with.

Swimmer

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.

Three Men Playing Soccer

Another minimalist sketch.

Sprinter

Quick sketch of a runner in ink. Thinking about the Olympics.
