Colored Halfweek

I have been busy this week with pencil and colored pencil. Often its just drawing from imagination but a focus on landscapes and characters. Molding them together.

On Friday I cutup brown paper into long stripes to use. Just like at art school!

Pencil on paper. One request was the sunflower (see right of ‘William’). I love requests! Several characters are also created, then a landscape. Notes on the right regarding color.

Color pencil. I could not find a green pencil. I wanted to cover the landscape and maybe areas of ground with it. Instead I used browns, reds and blues. Purple lightning!

Oil pastel. This is a train track. Blue water is flooding the track. Character portrait on the left. Red house in the distance. It’s raining blue.

STOP GO sign request. Could not find red, went with green. Had to color background blue or would of felt incomplete.

Final landscape request. Started with a star. Houses include a fire-station (with pole!).

Cheers,

Dolly felt work

I’ve been doing art at Fairfield Community Centre in the afternoons.
One of my regulars is Dolly.

Here she is working on her ‘Fairy House’ – gouche on white paper.

Her Feet People. It was a rainy day. Her shoes and socks were wet. She took them off.
She has excellent ideas regarding art activities and came up with the idea of tracing her feet.
This tracing of her feet was developed further into characters.
The character on the left is Dolly and on the right is me  – William. The characters are holding hands :)
The clothing and colors are the same as what we were wearing. Awesome obsovational traits.

The fairy house that she created. Started with pencil, then gouche, finally feltpen.

I hope you have enjoyed Dollys art, more in the future.

Ted Castle

Spent the day focusing on oil pastel and pencil. Some excellent results and collaboration with the kids.

I wanted to produces some landscape/building designs for Teds environment. So far I’ve created several character models – and weird shapes. Needs some environments!
