Serene Song: White charcoal and studio pencils on black paper. I once bought a pack of charcoal pencils that included a white charcoal. I finally came across a picture that would use that pencil. The shot I drew this from had stage equipment in the background. I left that out of the picture and instead placed a single red rose on the piano using studio pencils.
Scottie: Metalpoint on toned metalpoint paper. While in Timmins Ontario in the winter I did this quick metalpoint drawing, using silver and lead on specially prepared silverpoint paper.
At the Hockey Hall of Fame: Pencil on paper. I had a picture of my nephew pretending to leap over the boards while outside the Hall of Fame. It was drawn for my brother-in-law.
Beagle: Pencil on paper. Is it possible to not love the beagle? Charles Shultz loved it so much that he used the breed for Snoopy.
Greg: Pencil on paper. I was looking for something to draw one day and found this picture for a tuxedo ad. I just think he looks like a Greg.
Katerina: Metalpoint on toned metalpoint paper. This is another drawing done while in Timmins Ontario. A picture discovered on the internet gave me an interesting pose. Very few portraits have been tried by myself with a sid angel, but I am pleased with the result. This is a metalpoint drawing, using silver and lead on specially prepared silverpoint paper.
Husky: Pencil on paper. What can you say about such a beautiful dog. It was the profile of the animal that caught my attention for this drawing.
Holding Hands: Pencil on paper. A friend asked me to draw this one for her friend. How do you not love this pose?
Collie: pencil on paper. One of several dogs I drew. I’ve always loved this breed of dog, possibly because of watching Lassie when I was young.
Sarah: Pencil on paper. Whenever I feel like doing a drawing and can't find a suitable picture, I can go to Sarah Slean's website and find a good pose. Seriously, has this lady ever taken a bad picture?
Audrey Tautou: Pencil on paper. Amelie herself. I want to relearn French so I can watch this movie without having to look at the subtitles.
Carolyn: Pencil on paper. There was a movie made in Canada in the 80s called "Breaking All The Rules." It was not a great movie but did have a few scenes that made me remember it a couple of decades later. One of the stars was Carolyn Dunn. This was a screen capture of the girl who said, "You love my underwear?"
A Christmas Secret: Pencil on paper. When my nephew went to see Santa for the first time, the picture that was taken had this perfect pose. There was no way I could resist doing this drawing.
Golden Retriever: Pencil on paper. One of the most beautiful dog breeds, I enjoyed the look of this picture, the dog sitting in the tall grass.
Drawing is one of my favourite hobbies. The reason I love doing it is there really isn’t much involved in the cleanup. Painting (especially oils) is a bit more time consuming when finishing for the day.
I use mostly pencils for my drawings as they have a large range of hard to soft giving me a great range of tonal values but I also really enjoy the classic feel of using silverpoint.
