Life Drawings for Sale & Suggestions Taking Care of Original Art

0082

If you’ve been to my website in this past year, you will be familiar with these. This is my life drawing works from the past year. I’m looking to sell the ORIGINALS. If you’re interested in buying any of these (or any art for that matter), use this contact form on my site.

Here are prices, which DO NOT include shipping. When contacting me, be prepared to give me your address so I can calculate shipping and bill an all inclusive invoice. The paired images – I suggest you buy them together as a set because they go together, and I will prioritize people who want to buy sets.

About the work

Originals are all on 9″x12″ watercolour paper done with fade proof watercolours. They are unframed– BUT you can find inexpensive frames of these dimensions in most stores for very, very cheap (Amazon – $5-10). It’s not worth getting custom framing for this unless you’re going all the way and getting these vacuum sealed with UV protected glass. I suggest a slightly larger white frame for the lighter pieces, and a larger dark frame for ones with more black.

Here are a few quicker sketches. These have more irregular dimensions and might need to be trimmed down, but they are all done on the same paper with the same watercolours. These would be nice pieces for small area decorations, like a small bathroom or space in the kitchen.

Concept Art – Dragon – Last shot + Feet?

0046

Here’s the beginning of putting in the values, coming from the top-left corner. I am using the brightest and darkest values for the local value possible, and then a middle value. As usual, this is the point where I start working a lot faster and I am more concentrated, and I forgot to take anymore progress shots! Great job! Anyway, it basically becomes more and more fined & then I overlay gradient maps of colours (because I’m still finding other methods of adding colour confusing…).

Random SHOUTOUT! A dA user from (I think) Sweden recently blogged one of my ancient drawings. Here is the post! It’s the middle picture:

Syn Studio Life Drawing Workshop #1 – 20min Pose

0167

I did some longer poses during this workshop, but I think this is my favourite drawing. Why? It’s not really that it’s ‘loose’ – too many people get attached to that quality in art as if it’s magic. I’m more happy with how the lines are direct, assertive, and minimal. I’m happy with the texture of the watercolour, and how it’s also minimal, while creating a sense of realism. The expression looks natural and like there is a real person behind it. The composition is pretty good. It makes me happy to see this in my own work when it’s done this quickly. This is a record of how streamlined my brain has become with art and I am happy to see the progress. Mistakes and salad fingers aside.

There’s more work like this on my website under 2013. (Update – Year labels have been removed from my site. It would be under a life drawing section. Have a look around!)

Syn Studio Life Drawing Workshop #1 – 2min Sketches

I brought watercolours to the workshop to challenge myself. In the past, I’ve exclusively worked with charcoal or markers. I never would use a water medium… teachers would insist I would, but we were drawing on newsprint. You can’t use water on that shit. I bought a pad of watercolour paper so I can make a legit attempt.

Two minutes isn’t a lot of time to reign control over wet watercolours though.
