I painted Peggy’s Cove (one of my favourite places) a while back, and I recorded my process from pen and ink lines to watercolour wash:

Here’s today’s warm-up sketch. I started with fast gesture lines to describe movement, then worked in simple shapes before refining the sketch:

I’ve been trying out mandala drawings over the past few days, and this was the first to really come together the way I wanted it to. I’ve also been thinking ahead to using one of my mandala designs in a future wood carving/ wood burning project. Time to break out my geometric stencils!

I went out for coffee today to get away from my desk, soak up some fresh air and sunshine, and practice my outdoor gesture drawing. People on the move are a great challenge for speeding up my drawing (and memory) skills:

Here’s another painting from last fall’s acrylics class. Looking at this piece again, I’m quite happy with the energy in the brush strokes, as well as the contrast between the crimson and green. I love saturated colour, and using orange as an underpainting seemed to really pump up the intensity of the rest of the colours.

On a recent trip to the beach I did some very fast gesture work of people walking and playing, something that’s a real challenge when the subject in question is in constant motion! This was certainly a good exercise for speed.
