Walnut Tree, notebook sketch with Uniball pen, painted with a watercolor brush in Photoshop.
I always wanted a walnut tree. We finally planted one a few years ago, and while it’s healthy, it’s taking its time producing walnuts! Last year we had two or three. Maybe this will be our year? I’ll sketch more over the summer and track its progress.
The unfolding leaves are as beautiful as any sculpture.
Two Tulips. Graphite, watercolor pencils and colored pencils on watercolor paper, plus Photoshop.
I started with the black and white pencil drawing of these same tulips I did yesterday—I traced the outline of that onto watercolor paper using a light table, because I wanted to create a color version of the same thing.
Gesture drawing of a vase of flowers. Mechanical pencil on paper. I wanted to draw this as exuberantly as the flowers appeared in all their wild growth.
Calla lilies and tulips in blue ballpoint pen.
Pear blossom from our pear tree in front of our house. Sketched then redrawn on a Wacom tablet using various brushes in Photoshop.
