Pen and ink drawings scanned from the originals.
Cover ArtThe following images are scanned from the covers of sports car club newsletters who have used some of my pictures. The originals were all pen and ink.
A Fiat 500. This model was never imported into the U.S. As a
reference point, this car made Honda Civics look large and luxurious. They were
cute little cars but they could lose arguments with motorcycles and large
dogs...I've seen it happen.
A Honda 600 Coupe. I actually owned one of these and of all of
the cars that I've had, this one was my absolute favorite - even though it had
the least power by far of the lot. It was just incredibly fun to drive. With a
two-cylinder air-cooled 600cc engine, it's top speed was 78 mph but it was
sturdy and extremely well-built. Mine was destroyed in an altercation with a
bridge ... completely totalled ... but I walked away without even a bruise.
WatercoloursI'd never done any watercolours before, but my best friend (who is an accomplished artist) started taking a watercolour class and wanted me to come over and paint with her while she practiced the various techniques she learned.
Untitled. This is the very first watercolour that I've ever done. This one is really rather funny because my friend and I started out with the same picture, however mine ended up looking like a surrealist painter trying to paint a normal landscape while hers looks like a landscape painter attempting to do surreal.
Seashore. Light and water have always fascinated me, at least partially because I can't figure out how to depict that quality of translucent depth on a flat piece of paper. This is by far the best of my attempts to do this. <grin>
AcrylicsI've finally taken an art class! I'm now playing with acrylics and so far I really like them. Pictures to follow...
