This weekend WDE was hosted by Sharrm with a great group of images. But seems that today just wasn't my day... but I want to try an continue sketching and posting no matter WHAT!!! Win some ...loose some. All done in A5 sketch pad..... 2B Mechanical pencil about 15-20 minutes... Amaryllis a bit longer but didn't help much.....
This summer my art teacher Dov Segev referred me to the Yahud-Monosson city to illustrate a program for Edut-Testimony Theatre. This is a program for high school students and Holocaust survivors to meet and act out the survivors stories. This year Ezra and Irit Dagan worked with the students at the Yahud-Monosson Jr High School. Here are the illustrations that appeared on the program cover and the invitations to the production.
The first illustration was based on a oil painting I made of a forest. Cropping and inverting the colors in photo shop... I then added some faces and other images fro the Holocaust.
The back cover photo collage was made up of images from the families of survivors that took part in the program. The whole program in PDF format can be seen here. The top image sketch taken from a photo from March of the Living.
My granddaughter Mor just returned from Poland where she visited many of the camps.
I will be trying to do some sort of sketching or other art work daily... except of course for days that I am in Jerusalem... Really need to get back in practice. Sketch was done in my small A5 sketch book that I bought at Kravitz... not expensive... paper has a nice texture... HB pencil
Decided it was about time I got to doing some drawing sketching and what better place then the weekend drawing event at Wet Canvas. This weekend's host is RubyRedDog. Here are a few quick sketches done in my A5 sketch pad.
All done with 2B mechanical pencil... Really like this new sketch pad... paper is 98 grams and has a nice texture. Will have to see how it takes my crayons!!!
One of the forums I take part in is"Hello World" forum. It's a small group mainly interested in photo-shop and other photo editors, study groups. Some of the books being studied are Katrin Eismann's books on restoration, darkroom, and compositing and masking. Hello World is a great place to meet and show off our latest shoots.. pets, software, camera tips, and anything else under the sun... take a look around and join us..
This month Krisse proposed a challenge of fall colors giving two examples from a stock photo site called Freerange . Everyone is invited to try their hand at it. I decided that it may be a good idea to have a Flikr group so that we can view all the entries together.. I re-learned the use of the art history brush... which I think will be a great tool for my regular painting projects.
Used basically two sources for the art history brush... one that I used a underpainting filter and the original. Made two paint layers.. first with a large brush from the underpainting source and then a smaller brush using the original for putting in more details. Photo was done by Ron Chan and can be found here. May try my hand at the second image also by Ron Chan that Krisse gave us. To download images from this site you must register.
