Today’s Art (3rd June 2019)

Well, today’s artwork was a somewhat failed attempt at making a digitally-edited drawing based on this photo I took on a beach on Hayling Island last June.

Today’s Art (23rd October 2014)

Well, I felt like painting a landscape for today, but my initial idea for it was kind of boring, so I decided to make it a little bit gloomier and it worked out perfectly 🙂

Today’s Art (7th January 2014)

I have a confession to make, today’s art is hypocritical as hell. Yes, that’s right shocked reader, these are paintings rather than drawings! Well, sort of…

Basically, I got some watercolour pencils for Christmas and I’ve been experimenting with them. Yes, no good can probably come of this – but they do seem to allow me to have the kudos of making paintings whilst actually using the (vastly superior) medium of drawing to produce them. Perhaps it is the best of both worlds, perhaps….

"Showdown Desert" By C. A. Brown

“Showdown Desert” By C. A. Brown

Showdown Desert” was my first attempt at using watercolour pencils. Basically, I just made a normal drawing, but used these pencils for the colouring.

The only digital editing I did with this picture was to change the brightness/contrast (since my scanner usually makes things look “flat” when I scan them), but the watercolour paint kind of makes it look a bit like my old drawings (when I always used to add a blur effect after scanning them).

Oh, in case anyone was wondering, this drawing was mainly inspired by the fact that I was listening to this amazing song by Ghoultown when I was drawing it.

"Generic Beach" By C. A. Brown

“Generic Beach” By C. A. Brown

As the title suggests, “Generic Beach” is a rather generic drawing painting of a beach. I don’t know, this was mostly just an experiment with using the watercolour pencils on their own rather than as something to add to a drawing that I’d already made.
