Today’s Art (22nd October 2014)

Well, since I couldn’t think of a new idea for a painting for today, I planned to make a copy of this old Rembrandt painting called “Scholar At His Writing Table”. But, fairly soon after I started, I realised that the man in the painting looked a little bit like G. R. R. Martin. In case anyone is puzzled by the dialogue, G. R. R. Martin isn’t exactly famed for writing quickly

Today’s Art (7th February 2014)

Well, today’s watercolour pencil drawings ended up being kind of random, but I’m really proud of both of them.

"Spirit Of The 80s" By C. A. Brown

“Spirit Of The 80s” By C. A. Brown

Spirit Of The 80s” was meant to be a random 1980s-style drawing/painting, but it ended up having more of a 90s kind of look to it. Still, I’m really proud of it nonetheless 🙂

"Not The Night Watch" By C. A. Brown

“Not The Night Watch” By C. A. Brown

Ok, originally “Not The Night Watch” was going to be my attempt at a faithful copy of Rembrandt’s “The Night Watch“, but as soon as I tried to draw the lead watchman’s hand, it kind of looked like he was making a slightly crude gesture and this suddenly gave me the idea of turning this picture into a parody of Rembrandt’s original painting.
