Another Royal Winter Fair drawing (watercolour).

There were incredible cows there. I don't know what the breed was called, but they were all wrinkly, and coloured like Weimaraners. I did the drawing on location and painted it when I got home.

For those like me interested in process, the under-drawing looked something like this:

I am pretty sure I'll be headed to Europe in the spring for a month or two. Before that happens I feel like I need to make a concerted effort to draw more from observation so I am equipped to make the most of the trip. Hopefully I'll be able to bring myself to produce and post some figure drawings soon.

I really adore your work! It's inspiring me to push my own visual sense in my own. And I was just wondering after you draw your sketch do you water color over it? or do you scan it in and digitally color it?

Cool, I was just going to ask the same question as Toohey, I'm pretty curious because if it is computer I'm even more impressed than I already am.
In ancient times it was a compliment to have eyes like a cow, I still think the term could be used today.

I suppose I should have mentioned it was watercolour and ink. I had thought it was evident, but people are doing wonderful things with digital mediums these days...

Sorry to disappoint.

Sublime, encore une fois ! Et le mouton aussi !

C'est d'une sensibilité !!

Le vert olive du croquis d'étude en dessous est un plaisir pour l'oeil.

Et le travail digital ne remplacera jamais jamais le travail avec les outils dit "traditionnels" !! ((c'est mon avis))

Bravo, tout ici est magnifique, (j'aime énormement).

Hey Big Brother! You inspired me to start my own blogging thing. Did you happen to get a good enough sketch of the llama from our RWF outing to render?
