Number Eight

 

I have developed several ‘doodles’ from the sketchbook into very simple line-work drawings but this pen & ink ‘doodle’ (“The Gift”) worked best in a “Thumbnail Sketch” format.

A very simple pen & ink palm tree ‘doodle’ was the start of this “Thumbnail Sketch”.

These two small faces found their home as a “Thumbnail Sketch”. It wasn’t until I worked them into the thumbnail format that I decided on the ‘watching the movie’ narrative.

There have been a couple of subjects whereas I had a finished drawing and years afterward converted the main subject to a “Thumbnail Sketch” format. The ‘stone man’ is one of those subjects.

A reminder, the ‘Box’ with the “Thumbnail Sketches” are only 2 1/4” (56mm) square.

This 30 year old ‘doodle’ finally found it’s home, with some slight modifications, in this “Thumbnail Sketch” format.

 

The original is in private collection.

“The Thumbnail Sketches”

Number Two

 

There have been a few “Thumbnail Sketch” subjects that have, over time, managed to find their way to a larger modified ‘finished’ drawing. This is one of those Thumbnail sketches.

The outlined box is 2 1/4” (56mm) square. The thumb outline measures 2” (51mm) from the bottom border to the tip of the thumb.

“The Thumbnail Sketches” Number One

Thumbnail 1

“The Thumbnail Sketches”

Number One

 

Way, way, back when, I had a small simple sketch (doodle) of a face that I liked. Every time I reviewed my earlier sketch’s, I saw this “face” and as much as I liked it, I couldn’t seem to develop it into a finished drawing.

Over time, I also noticed that I started to accumulate other small subject’s in the sketchbooks that never found a home as a finished drawing.

During my tenure as an art teacher, I created a ditto, called a “Thumbnail Sketch Sheet” (with a drawing of a thumb to one side of the title and a nail to the other side). Beneath were four outlined squares for my students to create four different ideas for the current art lesson. One of which would be used for their final composition. The other three were tucked away in their file folder, also never to find a home.

After years of an ‘on again/off again’ mission to find a home for these doodles, there came an evening, four years ago, when I remembered the Thumbnail sketch sheet and wa-la, an idea, I traced my thumb for a pattern and found a home for my “misfit” doodles.

The outlined box surrounding the thumb is 2 1/4” (56mm) square. The thumb outline is enlarged from my original thumb size to accommodate a small drawing, but it still only measures 2” (51mm) from the bottom border to the tip of the thumb.

While these postings of the “Thumbnail Sketches” will not be in any chronological order, this first post is that initial “face” sketch that started me on this road.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week 30

Singer on a Stick

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 30-Holiday Intermission

 

It is my intent, with the Holidays and illness behind me, that next week I will post the “in-progress” center section with “Jack”. Until then I offer this last “Holiday Intermission”.

This weeks’ posted image, is another very simple drawing. In 2005, after a several year pause, I found a number of ‘doodles’ in my sketch books that renewed my interest and during a flurry of activity, from 2005 to 2008, some of these completed images were extremely simple in line and color. This renewed interest didn’t end with 2008, but I then settled in and resolved that I would no longer allow any extended pauses to interrupt my inherent need to continue creating art.

 

Entitled “Singer on a Stick”, this 8” x 10”, Color Pencil and Watercolor on paper, was finished July, 2006.

 

The continuing posting schedule for the project is, as laid out:

Today, Monday, January 12; “Holiday Intermission”.

Monday, January 19: “Jack” Center of Painting Progress Post.

As I engage in the Holiday season and a wrestle with a bout of the Flu, I will post a few “Holiday Intermission” images over the next few Monday’s till I get re-involved with “The House That Jack Built” after the New Years celebration’s.

 

For this intermission, the above Pen & Ink/Watercolor/Color Pencil drawing is entitled “Ladybug Necklace-Butterfly Bowtie”. This image was completed in July, 2006.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week 25

Wire Mustache

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 25-”Rain” Delay intermission.

 

To be completely honest, I am not ready to post the “Fourth Corner” of “The House That Jack Built”. Still being worked on and just not progressed enough that I would be satisfied with putting it out there for you to see.

I am still working on it now as this is posted and feel that it will be ready to post tomorrow, Tuesday.

As I continue work with detail in the fourth corner area of the painting “The House That Jack Built” I will post a past Art image.

My apologies.

To reflect my mood at not posting the Fourth Corner, I will post a Pen & Ink/Color Pencil/Watercolor drawing entitled “Wire Mustache” completed July, 2007.
