David Bowie - Eyes of a Starman, India Ink on Canvas Drawing

India Ink (Faber Castell) on a narrow canvas panel. 14″ x 18″

I’ve never done ink on canvas before, but I thought it somehow fitting to the image I was trying to create.

One thing I love and hate about ink is how cheat-proof it is. I don’t get to erase it or to tweak it, not like with a faulty stroke of a pencil. With ink, my first pen stroke is my last. A bit like live music – once heard, the faulty note cannot be taken back, but the piece is all the more beautiful for its presence.

Portrait Of a Wise Man – Black and White Charcoal on Toned Paper

I’ve not drawn anything – on paper – in over two years. What made me return to it is the kindest, wisest man I have ever known.

Rest in peace, Ray.

I drew this portrait about a year ago and forgot to post it here. As you can see, it’s a rather unsure attempt to do an all-charcoal face with a small (tiny) degree of realism thrown into the mix. I didn’t even own a kneaded eraser yet, nor had I any idea how to use my hi-polymer one to create hair highlights. Nothing has ever given me as much trouble as Zach’s hairline.

I am still reasonably pleased with the result though.

'Come Hither Gesture' Charcoal Pencil Drawing, 2012

‘Come Hither Gesture’ Nude Spock Charcoal Pencil Drawing, 2012

Pencils used: Fabre-Castell HB, 2B, 4B, 6B, 8B graphite and a coarse HB charcoal.

The drawing is 11” x 14” and is too big for the scanner. Unfortunately, a pencil drawing doesn’t photograph too well, so pardon the quality.

Anyway…

I have no idea where this one came from. The only explanation I have would sound something like this: “I did it, because I can”. It is not logical, but it is true.

For the past several months I wanted to try my hand at drawing a nude male form or a moderately complicated hand/arm combination, seeing as I’ve never done either of those two very interesting things.

So I’ve found a suitably striking hand/arm picture and drew it…. and if I happened to add Spock’s ears and eyebrows, I have no regrets.

Consider it to be my gift to all the Trek fangirls everywhere. The new movie is still almost five months away and already I can barely wait!

p.s. I still couldn’t draw fabrics/textures if my life depended on it.

Audrey Hepburn Charcoal Pencil Drawing
I know I don’t draw enough female faces and this charcoal pencil portrait of Audrey Hepburn is my attempt to rectify the situation. This drawing was done with a regular charcoal 2B pencil and blended… wait for it… with the now semi-famous, good-for-all-occasions eye liner make up brush. I don’t think I’ll ever do charcoal hair, whether blonde or dark, without that brush, – it makes everything look softer, more lifelike.
