Going Bananas (and Peachy)

After being immersed in a failed oil painting portrait and a major home construction project it was wonderful to return to sketching despite feeling rusty. The funny flat peaches in the drawing above are called “Donut” peaches. They’re just as yummy as the round ones and way better for you than donuts. Below are more banana and peaches sketches.

In the foreshortened banana sketch above I was experimenting with the “Flatting” brush in Procreate.

While I was away from my blog, WordPress made some nice changes that are making it easier to post so I’m trying to get caught up with a few months of sketches and paintings. Today a couple of fruit bowls sketched in Procreate on the iPad.

Sketching Before Breakfast #5

Now that I’ve come out the other side of the kitchen remodel I’m so grateful to be done and be able to enjoy it, to have the house to myself again, to not continually have noise and dust despite the careful screening, and to have completed making seeming hundreds of decisions and purchases big and small. Now I get to return to a “normal” routine of painting, drawing, hiking and spending time with my dog, friends and family.

Mouths, Lips, Teeth

I’ve been doing a lot of drawing practice to improve my people portrait drawing skills. Mouths and teeth are the most challenging I think of all the features. All done in Procreate on the iPad.

More mouths!

Shower Caps! And here’s the ph

Inspired by a Sktchy photo, created in ProCreate on iPad with Apple Pencil, when it was too early for bed and I was too tired to go to the studio. Sat the iPad on my knee, looked at photo in Sktchy App on iPhone.  And here’s the inspiration photo:

Let me know what you think about shorter posts like this. I’m going to try to post more often to the blog, with more pictures and less words. Sometimes less is more (posts) if I can get stuff posted quickly without long explanations. But don’t worry, there will still be lessons I’m learning in the studio posts too.
