Henna Hand

This is a Henna Hand done in ink and colored pencils.  The wife had this done some years back.  Her two small fingers are curling down.  The colored pencils make up the color of her skin.  Her Mother thought it was a tattoo and freaked out.  It only took three months to wear off, so it seemed almost permanent.

Back to Painting

I am back painting, I had to take a work trip and did not get any work done.  I added the start of the water reflection added details to the rocks, the fountain, and I started on the fur of the rabbit.

Seated Skeleton Study

I some times feel like this at the day job.  Well this is modeled after the medieval or masters style of drawing the skeleton, then the muscles, and then add the clothing and facial features.  Tomorrow I will add the muscles.

Red Chalk sketch - Man falling

More of an experiment in red chalk and white chalk on grey paper.  I did his quickly as something new.  I am not happy with the proportions but it is needed as practice.

Airplane Art, or what I do while captive on a plane

I am getting back from some work travel.  When I fly on a plane, I work on these type of quick pencil sketches.  This one is of a toddler with bed head hair.  It is done with regular pencil.
