In song: Pencil on paper. A sketch of one of the best singers
A Boat in the Water: Watercolour on paper. A picture on the Internet was what I used to try and paint some mountains. I'm happy with the way the boat turned out.
Carol Lombard: Silverpoint on panel. Although a sketch to define my silverpoint grounds, it's of one of the beautiful women of early Hollywood. Watching "My Man Godfrey," it's easy to fall in love with this sweet lady.
Study of Dürer Praying Hands: White chalk and black pastel on blue paper. This was homework for one of my master’s techniques classes. The assignment was to copy “Praying Hands” by Albrecht Dürer. Although I’m happy with the result it obviously doesn’t compare to the original. More about Dürer can be found at the Artsy Albrecht Dürer page.
Study of Käthe Kollwitz Woman with Dead Child: Watercolour pencils on watercolour paper. This was a 30 minute sketch of a Kollwitz print that I did in a drawing from the vaults class at the Art Gallery of Ontario. It was done as a compositional study.
Table in Coffee Shop: Watercolour pencils on watercolour paper. A table in the corner in a coffee shop in Timmins Ontario. With watercolour pencils I quickly sketched the scene and then finished it off with water back at the apartment.
Beverley Street: Watercolour on paper. Beverley Street in Toronto next to the Art Gallery of Ontario was the inspiration for this watercolour sketch.
Study of Whistler's Nocturne: The River at Battersea: Watercolour pencil on paper. Another from drawing from the vaults at the Art Gallery of Ontario, I tried using colour in the composition even though the original had none.
Pond Hockey: Watercolour on paper. A sketch of a picture I came across on the internet.
Open Hands: Silverpoint on panel. A quick sketch to try a silverpoint ground.
