Lunch Sketch #3

I started this yesterday but then I got interrupted by work so I ended up finishing it today. It’s not perfect but I’m happy enough with it. The purpose of these lunch time sketches it to get myself out of a bad habit, I want to stop just mindlessly surfing my lunchtimes away. Who knows, I might even improve my drawing skills too!

Alvaro Castagnet Water colourist with Spanish flare.

I found Alvaro’s technique very compelling when I stumbled upon it yesterday on YouTube. He has boundless self-confidence which is probably the most important lesson of all when learning to paint: to be daring and not being scared to make mistakes.

Lunch sketch number two

It may not be the best caricature I have ever drawn but I am happy to be sketching with my new mini-water-colouring set, a ‘Field Box’ from Winsor & Newton.

I stumbled apon this site the other day called Wikipainting. It needs to feature more artists to succeed but it does have potential. I enjoyed looking at the Alphonse Mucha and Egon Schiele pages; make sure you click on the , ‘All artworks’ tab to see of the complete archive of the artist.

I know this is politicly incorrect, 
but I like it! 
Rockin’ JellyBean who lives in Japan (I think) is known for wearing Mexican wrestling masks and having a babe on each arm. He also has a Surf-Rock band called Jackie and the Cedrics.

Developing my drawing style

http://www.klimt.com

I am currently scanning my life drawings from 2011 which I hope will soon be published here on this blog. While looking through all the studies I decided I need to stylise my illustrations to give them a more accomplised feel. As I like Art Neuveau so much I plan to try this style in the near future and see what developes. Artists I like are: Alphonse Mucha and  Gustav Klimt. More modern Artists I admire in this Art Neaveau style are: Audrey Kawasaki and Adam Huges

Audrey Kawasaki



http://www.audrey-kawasaki.com
Audrey Kawasaki’s work is both Manga and Art Nouveau inspired, her technical skills are top-class. I find the work both erotic and innocent, the fact that a lot of the paintings are directly on wood add a lot of warmth to the compositions.

Audrey updates her online journal frequently with new work, pieces in progress, information about shows and more. Click here to visit Aud’s Journal
