Now a drawing of warmer climates. The art of boat building and boat repair. A fine craftsmen making repairs to his boat. This was another fun one to draw, and had several challenges. Hope you enjoy.
Always wanted to do a scene of the country with a team of dogs pulling a sled. Tried several new techniques on this one and have found that an eraser is almost as good as the pencil to get interesting shading results for the sky and rough snow. Hope you enjoy, this has been a rough sketch and kept the dogs in simple form so as not to take away from the background. The dogs could be cleaner and more detailed, but again on this one I like the rustic and rough look. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do. Enjoy
This was a study of the reflection in the eye of an eagle. I think I captured the serious tone the eagle is displaying as he is overlooking his hunting area. As birds of prey often display a very intense look in their eyes, they serve as the most important aspect to its survival. The edges of this work were too large for my scanner so clipping did occur. I will try and get a photo displaying the whole piece as soon as I can.
May the Fair Wind Blow – 8″ x 10″ Pencil Drawing on parchment paper
The wind does not always favor those swift at heart. For some we must make our own wind, and hope we do not get caught in its whirls. For others we only need to dream.
Strength, Spirituality, and Wisdom- 8″ x 10″ Drawing on parchment paper
Give me the strength to conquer my enemies, the spirituality to reasure me what is right, and the wisdom to know when to use each. A warrior, shaman/medicine man, and a chief are atop their horses overlooking an empty plain, the great emptiness. Perhaps a glimpse into the distant future or a reflection of our past, you decide.
