About Me

I have done pictures since I can remember. I took all the art classes in junior high and high school I could and naturally became an art major in college. I graduated with a BFA in art and writing and marry the two by writing and illustrating children's books.

Illustration Underdrawing of Old King Cole at Final Charcoal Stage

When last we left OKC, he was just line work. I think after today, I'll say the black and white work is done.
   Next, I'll apply oil tints. The grasshopper and 2 crickets are not very visible at this point, but I'll bring them back out in opaque color. The background colonnade will drop way back after it gets it oil washes.
   Now, for some candlelight.

Thanks, everybody. I'm itching to get the color going. Spent the day drawing charts for an engineering company. It's money...

Thanks Louis. Color on this is about 75% done. Once it's complete, I'll post a larger view. Thanks for your interest.
