I also work figuratively, sketching all sorts of subjects. It is very different than painting abstract, yet I love doing both, they complete each other.

Aude-Noelle Nevius - Blog: Dry point portrait of Malik

Dry point portrait of Malik

About 9 x 7.5 inches, printed on Rives BFK. This was my last project in the printmaking course I took with Eleanor Anderson. I carved it on a piece of plexiglass with a scribe, after having made a drawing from a photo. This is a long process and the printing part is as well, and you don't want to miss any steps or you wind up with a lousy print. I'm pretty satisfied with this one, the first of 3 and most successful. It totally looks like Malik, although his muzzle is more concave and not so…

Collagraph - Printmaking ink over Rives BFK paper, 8.5x6 in.

Printmaking ink on Rives BFK paper, 9.25 x 7.5 I am taking a printmaking course with Eleanor Anderson, who is so incredibly talented, in printmaking, and in ceramics! I love her work, she is highly inspiring to me. The first week was lino cut, which I like, but didn't create anything transcending. This week we did collagraphy, which is is a printmaking process in which materials are applied to a rigid substrate (such as paperboard or wood). Ink or pigment is applied to the resulting collage…

Bright thistles

I like to walk my dog in South Park feedgrounds, and the early morning light has been wonderful, with fog that makes the land mysterious, and bright colors when the sun comes out. I came upon some thistle in full bloom, and I simply loved the color palette, green and fuschia, beautiful. J'aime aller marcher a South Park avec mon chien, et la lumiere matinale est tres belle ces temps-ci, avec du brouillard qui rend la vue mystérieuse, et de belles couleurs fortes lorsque le soleil sort. J'ai…

Gray day on the Town Square

Yesterday was a gray day, and at times rainy. Good light for drawing, no harsh shadows, and I spent a while on our local town square sketching people. I could have done much more, but I got cold as sitting just about motionless is not the most warming thing to do. And here, if it rains, the temperature plummets. But the time I spent was fun, and I want to do more. I liked the abundance of colors in clothing, the hats, the umbrellas, and the challenge. Hier, le temps était gris, et parfois…

Tools Study

Still lives can be fun to do, particularly when I challenge myself with different objects. No pear or lemon here, only Alan's tools, which were really fun to do. A little tricky on the foreshortening of the tape measurer, but overall, I'm satisfied with the result. I used my watercolors a bit differently, on top of a water soluble marker, that was cool.

Sketching at the Raptor Center

Today I had the great pleasure of sketching at the Teton Raptor Center, with the wonderful artist Shannon Troxler Thal. I've always loved her work, and having her there to help me as I worked was most inspiring. I had the opportunity to sketch Ruby the partially blind red-tailed hawk, a real beauty, a bit restless but after a while I understood her shape. Her talons were stunning and I wish I had had more time to sketch them. I also drew Owly the great-horned owl, a true model at heart as…

Rainy Day

Last week had a couple of very gray days. Driving back from town, I could see a downpour to the west, back behind some hills. I couldn't stop and take a photo, but it stayed in my mind. I finally had to get it out of there since it was haunting me - happily! I knew watercolor would be the perfect medium for this, since it was a watery kind of day. The view is from my imagination and I feel that I'd like to capture the real one. I'll have to wait for another stormy day. Il y a eu deux jours…
