Strokes of Genius 7

Strokes of Genius 7

“Adrift” appears on page 123 of Strokes of Genius 7: The Best of Drawing; Depth, Dimension, and Space (North Light Books, 2015).  I’m excited that my work appears on the same page as Holly Siniscal’sDancing Shoes“.  I’m a fan of Holly’s work (and just missed owning one of her originals in a bidding war at the CPSA silent auction).  Copies of the book can be ordered from North Light Books online store.

I created as short time lapse video of the work in progress photos from “Daybreak”. You can see my process for this piece was:

  1. White line drawing on black paper
  2. Foundation layers for the background
  3. Worked the skin tones from brightest to darkest areas
  4. Worked the shadows
  5. Brought up the lights and refined the fine details

Thanks for watching!

Spotlight Artist

My work “Adrift” will be featured in the “Competition Spotlight” section of the October 2015 issue of the Artist’s Magazine.  “Adrift” was a finalist in the 2014 Artist’s Magazine annual art competition.  It’s an honor to be selected for the competition spotlight (and I’m always particularly happy when a colored pencil piece is selected in an all media competition), so be sure to check out the October issue.Artists Magazine Competition Spotlight
