As per my post yesterday about drawing the same thing (person) for nearly a whole sketchbook... here are some of the better ones. Pencil, ink and colour markers. Definitely like how I’ve improved and the current technique is more me! #yyc#yycart#progress#process
Second session done! 💕💕💕 I love it so much and I cant wait to see how the rest turns out! Trevor is a genius! .
Something a little different from the other day! The dragon is a mix of Asian and European styles. It’s red and gold to honour my client’s step father who is Chinese, and for her is just Dad. Adoption is the most beautiful expression of love. Adopted children were chosen. Of course, most children are chosen, but when you adopt someone, you pick them fully formed. They are not a potential, they are who they are. I see God in adoptive parents, who chooses us as we are to be His children. He does all the paperwork. He pays the cost of adoption. He gives you an inheritance of life.
Lil’ devil kewpie 😈
Got to do a snakey wrap around thanks for the trust in your first tattoo! 👌🌟
Maxwell Bennett Bates is celebrated for his important role in bringing Modernism to Western Canada. He was born today in 1906 in Calgary and from a young age sought exposure to art, architecture and writing. In the early 1930s, he moved to England where he exhibited his work to a new audience and was exposed to new ideas. In 1940, he enlisted in the war where he was captured as a Prisoner of War in Germany—his experiences there would go on to influence his artwork significantly. “The Lonesome Road” was painted in 1970, the later years of Bates’ career. The mysterious figure stands in the middle of a field, sporting backwards clothing and decorated with a war medal. It’s an iconic example of Bates’ mystifying expressionist compositions, full of deeply reflective symbolism.
