Inktober 2022

I undertook the annual Inktober Challenge this year.   This challenge is to respond to various prompts and sketch an image in ink every day during October.   I am not a fan of ink drawing since it is so unforgiving.   I much prefer pencil drawings which are more forgiving and less harsh.   Below are a few images:

Still Life with Alliums and Nightshades

I’ve tried a lot of different hobbies, crafts, and activities during the pandemic. It seems the one that is going to stick is a drawing practice using colored pencils. I just finished this drawing which may go up on a kitchen wall.

“Still Life with Alliums and Nightshades”, 9×12 inches, Prismacolor pencils on Strathmore 400.

Day 62: Teasing Out the Truth

A couple of years ago, I took a photograph of a beach sunset. The photo was lovely but it did not catch the luminosity and vibrancy that I witnessed that evening. I finished this painting last night– actually a triptych of panels since I did not have an appropriate sized canvas– that teased out the truth of my experience of that evening.
