Every once in a while I like to do one of these ink figure paintings from my drawings.  It’s a little break from my other painting to rejuvenate myself.  I’ll get back to my bright colors tomorrow.

Sketch for its own sake

I’ve take a few days off from painting but I’m still sketching.  It is a joy to sketch for its own sake.  So much of my drawing these days are plans for paintings so it is nice just to have fun with a scene that may never see paint! 

I’ll be back painting by Friday.

Okay, it was one of those rare sunny, warmish February days in Oregon and I played hookey and went outside.   I painted for much of the day, but didn’t finish my painting.  I thought you might enjoy the drawing I did two days ago of a wonderful model with whom I work  on an ongoing basis. 

As always, thank you for visiting!

Ink Figure Drawing – Spent the day at Hipbone Studios

Ink Figure Drawing
by Carolee Clark

I spent the day at a “Model Marathon” at Hipbone Studios in Portland.  They have 9 models in 9 hours and it is a exhausting, wonderful day of drawing the figure.  While doing this drawing I was feeling good, the model was relaxed and professional.  She was comfortable, and obviously a favorite of the artists present.   I rarely sell my drawings as they are fodder for my paintings, however, because I spent the day drawing, I didn’t have a painting to share with you.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. 

Cheers, Carolee

Many of you know that I gave myself the challenge to paint a painting a day for a year.  I have been doing this for about nine months now.  I knew that it wouldn’t be feasible to do one every single day so I thought that 5 or 6 a week would probably do.  Yesterday I realized that I had painted one for 26 days straight and I was tired!

Hence my little ink paintings.  They are my breath, a tiny respite.  I find them totally calming  and thoroughly enjoyable.  They take me less time than my acrylic paintings so I have a little more time to post, answer email, enter shows and work on larger pieces!

You might see a few of these in the next couple of days so that yes, I can catch my breath.

One trouble I am running into these days is the short amount of daylight.  If I don’t finish my painting before 3:30 pm I cannot get a decent photograph!  So instead of the painting I was working on today, I have posted this study I did yesterday of a larger work that I am creating.

I love to see dogs with their people.  They are always so happy, so eager and pleased to be on a walk.  This puppy was okay with waiting until his person had rested enough, but he sure had energy and desire to continue!

Does an artist have enough of these moments?  I know that I don’t.  This looks so nice, a quiet moment, to sit, to think, to enjoy the silence.
