  • Drawing Basics: How I Start My Pencil Drawings

    Drawing block-in by Steve Early. From the time I started drawing, I have had a constant battle with myself over how to start. For years I have been looking for the one right way to sketch in a composition or block-in an underpainting. Lately, and with the help of my Studio Incamminati instructors, I...

  • Can’t I Be Part of a Painting Dynasty?

    Paris by Danny McCaw, 24 x 16. Not to be a whiner, but I don't have an artistic legacy to build on. So far as I know, no one in my family is an artist or has any particular leanings towards painting or drawing. That's why I'm so enamored with the idea of being part of an artistic dynasty...

  • Why Do I Draw?

    Today was a day spent asking myself questions about my art. Two of the questions I have focused on are: "Why do I draw?", and "Why do I draw what I draw?" The copy of a Prud'hon drawing that I did in Natalie Italiano's drawing class. I believe drawing is a foundation to realistic...

  • Drawing and Painting Together

    This is another complicated charcoal drawing, one done by an artist completing her first level of study at Studio Incamminati. I have shown it in three stages, ranging from the beginning of the drawing process to the end. The light is from the front right, and the subjects include metal and glass objects...

  • Re: New to painting, critique/advice appreciated

    I have a few comments. 1) There are no rules. There are ways of gaining skills, but no rules. 2) What do you want your drawing/painting to look like? Do you have (a) favorite artist(s) whose works you particularly admire? Find someone to emulate because it gives you a first standard toward which you...

  • Re: Challenge #25 - November 2012

    Because you invited experienced artists as well as beginners I decided to participate. I drew a version of the basket photo which I post below. It reminds me of a copy in pen that I made recently of one of Van Gogh's early still lifes (which I copied from a book). As with that copy (which follows...

  • Everything is Practice for Everything Else

    I have painted many still lifes over time, and I like to approach the genre differently at different times. Because it's not always possible for me to paint at the same time each day (for uniform light), I sometimes "practice" the subject by using other media that are quicker, less complicated...

  • new still life objects

    Every so often I revisit the thrift stores in search of new still life objects, and rarely do I leave empty handed. My most recent trips were no exception. And now in turning to still life again, I have a bunch of brand new-to-me things to look at and study. I first use them to make drawings. I want...

  • "Childhood"

    When I was very young, we'd go to my grandparent's house. At the back door and to the right, was a milk delivery door. It was cast iron on the outside against the brick and inside, next to where my Granddad would sit at the kitchen table, the inner wooden door with a chrome door. They were maybe...
