The Flood

While working today I did a rough pencil and pen sketch of "The Flood".
Rough drawing but if you look close you can see the different animals walking to
the Ark.

That lonely slender tree

The other evening my wife, my mother-n-law and I took a nice drive into the country.
It was a perfect evening, nice and cool, and the lightning bugs were out in full force by the end of the night. Anyways, we stopped a few times to take pictures of the fields and horizon and I loved the look of this lonely slender tree over a wheat field. so decided to sketch it quickly by memory today.

Tree in progress....and knowing when to stop.

Upon Vince's request (friend here at work) I decided to scan and post this sketch before I
"finish". Why??? because Vince and I had a conversation the other day about knowing when to stop with a painting, drawing, etc. He thought it was a good time to stop, and he liked how the pen fully rendered looked in contrast to the sketchy pencil. I can't exactly call this finished though...I "need" to finish it with pen...fully rendered. Sooo this is for Vince...raise your glasses! to Vince!

I will continue to post this image as I move along :)

"My Last Stand" (pen and pencil sketch)

I truly love pen. This drawing was done with my new brush pen, normal Micron pens, and pencil.
A lot of fun I tell you :) I may see what I can do with this in photoshop as well...we'll see.
