The Art 111 Show

I got my portfolio back from my Beginning Drawing class today and wanted to share a few of my favorite drawings from the class. If you are interested in contributing to my tuition fund, I am willing to let go of these fine pieces for a mere $1,253.87 each. ACT NOW!! These things are flying off the shelf!!! Anyways, it was a lot of fun, it always amazes me how quickly you sink into a different reality while drawing. The class was over three hours long four days a week but time speeds up when you have your favorite implement in hand and it seems like the class just flew by me! It was nice because almost every day we started and finished one complete drawing....enjoy.....

Hey Mart, "They're balloons...for a party." Remember that?

For some reason, this one was the most enjoyable to draw...

A Landscape drawn while camping at Olallie Lake...complete with skeeter guts...

Scratch that, THIS was the most enjoyable to draw!! Artists love nudity...

A still life in Charcoal...

I had to whip this one up at home, I really like it but I don't think it's finished,
I think I'll add a mermaid in the middle and go for some much more contrasting values...
Love the Anchor though.....

The Duracell one is pretty cool.

I actually hate sketching now because for my program, Interior Design, they are Nazi's about it, and it took all the fun out of it.

I am fascinated by what's inside Joe's head. The similar one you did a few years ago has been my favorite, and this one is also great.
