Here’s my first drawing for October!

Getting Ready for Inktober 2020

“Murillo Reference” Cedar Park, 2020

I’m getting psyched for the upcoming Inktober! Just like last year, I’ll be doing daily drawings on my iPad but not following the official Inktober prompts. And of course, these won’t be ink drawings.

I’ve been really lax about my digital drawing, so this will be good for me. I know I learned a lot last year and am looking forward to what this year will bring as far as new techniques and preferences.

Today’s photo is of a drawing I started. I am basically getting a line drawing ready to use as a basis for different kinds of styles.

The original painting is The Virgin of the Annunciation by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo which I viewed at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Unfortunately, one of Murillo’s other paintings was in the news recently because of a botched restoration attempt. 😔

Oh well, nothing is permanent…

Doodling

“Doodling” Cedar Park, 2020

Lately I’ve been enjoying just doodling in my sketchbook using my Pilot Metropolitan and Noodler’s Bulletproof Black Ink. It’s fun to just let the lines go where they want to.
