Still Life

Artist Steven Reddy is a member of the Urban Sketchers group and also teaches a couple of online courses through Bluprint (aka Craftsy).
I find his technique interesting but have never had the courage to adopt his quirky, almost cartoonish style. However, I do find that there is something liberating about using these direct pen contour lines, with little or no preliminary drawing. Perspective isn't always accurate and shapes are sometimes a bit skewed, but the finished result makes for a strong, illustrative drawing.

Letting Sleeping Dogs Lie

I haven’t been doing as much painting recently, but still drawing and sketching.
Quite often it is the dog who gets to star. I really should make an effort to do some action sketches. Letting the sleeping dog lie is all very well but they get a bit repetitive.

Window Sketches

I am a big fan and follower of the urban sketchers group, but I am too much of a wuss to spend much time at it myself through the Ontario winter. I have to make do with these views through my windows.


Snow Trees

12"X12" Oil on canvas

Niagara is still full of fruit farms, although they are fast being replaced by vineyards.

I can’t remember what sort of trees these were. In the winter they all bear the same fruit.
