Dark Horse

I took about 10 days off of my sketch a day activity. My energy levels are climbing again so I'm going to resume the daily sketches. This was digital and done with a small wacom bamboo digital drawing tablet in Photoshop. It took about 20 minutes and I worked from my imagination.

Nasty River Pirate

A quick digital sketch before going to bed this evening. I got the idea from google translating my name from German. I got "Nasty Waterman". So I started imagining what a nasty river pirate or hooligan would look like. Just havin' fun. :-) This took about 40 minutes.

Old Oregon Barn

A few miles north of Newberg, Oregon, in Oregon's wine country area, is an old barn that looks much like this along the road. This is digital and was done from memory of a recent drive I took through the area. The sketch took about 30 minutes and was my sketch of the day on Facebook.

Profile of a Young Woman

This was watercolor washes on thick 8.5 x 11.5 inch watercolor paper. I worked from memory on this one. It took about 25 min.

Watercolor Doodle of a Female Face

I have been sick with a flu like bug for several days and I haven't posted my daily sketches for awhile. I'll start up again now since I'm starting to feel better. This was a doodle out of my head of a female face done with watercolors.

Sour Note

A quick digital sketch this evening: I usually go to my reference files to find an interesting face/expression/subject to sketch when I'm at a loss for something to tackle for my daily sketch exercise.
