Masks – Sketch

Here’s a drawing I’ve been working on.  I’ve always loved drawing clowns and have been for several years now.  I think my clowns tend to look more like the Pierrot type of clown.  Anyway, I’ll post more about all that later.  For now I thought I’d share this sketch.  It will more than likely be a base sketch for a digital painting, but as of now I really like the drawing too.

Blue Morpho on Orange Leaves

I believe this is called a Blue Morpho Butterfly, and I think it is so beautiful, not only in the way it looks, but also because of it’s size and the way it flutters around in the air.  I didn’t have the easiest time photographing this butterfly because it was always on the move.  Not only was I lucky when it finally landed and spread opened its wings, but it happened to land on this colorful plant with orange leaves that really show the rich color of the blue wings.

Happy Turtle

Here is my newest artwork, a digital drawing of a hawksbill sea turtle.  It is far different from some of my other animal pictures in my animal series, and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.  I had fun with it too.  If you’re interested in seeing the drawing process, I posted a video here on my blog.

Prints of this artwork are available here
