Here’s the final inked art from the pencils seen below. You can see I altered a few things here and there I went from pencils to inks. The client also made a few requests involving the lady in the illustration. This is a private commission.

Swampy’s Florida Prints – Picnic at Biscayne Bay.

Here’s the last of the nine watercolor paintings of Biscayne Bay beach set. This was the last one I needed to finish and I only found time today to do it. This wraps up the set and will show all nine when they are set for the gallery catalog they are going in.

January 23rd, 2013: Pencil art for Florida beach prints

by on Jan.23, 2013, under Cartooning, Illusration, Swampy's Florida

20130123-200713.jpg

Just chug-a-lugged out eleven pencil drawings of a series of beach scenes I’ll be doing later in February.

Stopped for dinner at Ashley’s Restaurant in Rockledge, Florida, for dinner and to get a little work done. Ate a fine prime rib and got the 11 drawings done in two hours and a half!

More to come as I work on each. Suffice it to write that I’ll be using lots of yellow ochre and cerulean blue!

June 5th, 2010 – National Trails Day!

Headed over to Silver River State Park about 5 miles. Above is a sketch from across the Silver River at the boat landing at the end of the River Trail.

After that I took the Fort King Military Trail. Below is a sketch from that I added color to.

At the boat launch all these little children were squealing about seeing a turtle. The softshell poked more of his head out and part of his body. He was a huge sucker. I pointed out to the little folks that the turtle was about the size of a little red head there and he was probably hiding under the launch to keep away from hungry gators. Their eyes got all big and scampered back so they might spot the shy critter again. Below is as much of the turtle I could get in a photo.

There’s more about this hike at Swampy’s Florida.
