Yesterday I posted an ink drawing of my hero, Roberto Clemente, so today I figured I'd bring us back to the future with my favorite Pittsburgh Pirate, Andrew McCutchen.
Well the Steelers' season is over and I'm trying to find ways to cope; so I'm already thinking about baseball.
What better way to start getting into the Pittsburgh Pirate mood than to commemorate the Great One, Number 21.
Oh yeah and I finished the SpaceMan. So Hit the jump to Check out the Drawings, step-by-step.
I draw a lot; (Especially in my free time) and I love people watching, so it's a wonder why it has taken me so long to start combining these two. Here's the premise:
I'll draw a random stranger on the sidewalk (it may have been you, sorry for using your likeness), and tweek it. It's a bit windy to try to explain it all, so I'll show you.
It starts with a sketch
A little 4x6 line drawing with a little "tweeking" to make the subject a little more interesting and expressive.
And Then a Watercolor
I scale it larger, Try to fill the space a little more, and more "tweeking".
The third and final step will be large acrylic paintings.
I'm constantly creating sketches and turning them into watercolors, but I only recently begun turning them into larger paintings.
I'll keep you posted as I keep cranking out artwork.
