This is a study of hands today from the Figure & Gesture Drawing class. I hope to express emotion better in figure drawings. The class mode for hands has excellent images progressing from quick sketches up to the 30 minute pose.

One pencil, one sketchpad at Dry Comal Creek (New Braunfels)

This is a quick post of a great lesson I learned today. If you don’t like technical art stuff, you may skip this or use it to induce a powerful nap.  You were warned. When you’re having trouble with your paintings outdoors, only take a pencil and a…

Landa Park (New Braunfels): Plein Air Painting

At 2pm, it’s cold. Wet. Drizzy. Surely this is no time to get out to paint. 100% chance of rain with possible t-storms is what the Weather Channel App says.  With a heavy case of boredom and curiosity of what there is to paint in conditions like this, I…

Day1: After a bit of work on Saturday, I headed up to Canyon Lake, Texas to jog the dam a few times and brought my plein air pack just in case. Usually just downstream of a lake dam is a scenic area and sure enough there was one here too. I found a…

Plein Air: Belton, TX at Dana Peak Trails

This will be a quick post. I came to Harker Heights, TX to be with my parents for Christmas and found a few free hours on Christmas Day to venture and paint. It was full sun and 65 degrees. Perfect. This is a scene of some Live Oaks along the Dana Peak…

New Braunfels Plein Air: Canyon Lake Gorge

After painting at the popular Cypress Bend Park last time, I was out to seek a place where nobody knew about. A place of solitude and quiet. Canyon Lake is about 20 minutes from New Braunfels with pristine water so clear it’s noted as a favorite spot for…

Plein Air: Springtime at Pergatory Creek Natural Area

Last week I took only a pencil and paper to plein air sketch and re-learn to see the world in values (not colors). It really helped today. There was a very brief moment of sun around 3:30 and despite barely being able to put on my socks from a hurt back,…

Hinman Island Park: Plein Air Painting of a Waterfall

Here a quick post of a plein air color sketch from yesterday that I saw when going to Landa Park (see last post). I arrived after work around 4:30 and wandered around looking for the best angle, which ended up in the water. Then came the planning on how…

Madrone Trail (Canyon Lake Park): Plein Air Painting

What started off as a cold Saturday, turned out perfect with the warm sun shining through the clouds.  I got back out to Canyon Lake to find a scene on the Madrone Trail. This 8-9mile loop is on a long peninsula with some amazing views of the clear,…

I like Croquis Cafe too. I use them in our hangouts to warm-up for the long drawing. Great reference for us artists. We are spoiled now a days. lol

It is definitely spring here in Central, TX.  I went out to Dana Peak again to hike and find a good spot only to find the small parking lot full and cars lining the sides of the road for a quarter of a mile!  I went to my favorite sitting spot in a peak…

Plein Air: Fall Colors in New Braunfels, TX

It’s been a while since I’ve had energy/time to get outdoors for some painting. Post turkey dinner and a good sleep last night gave me just enough of a boost to head out to my favorite spot in New Braunfels to paint, Cypress Bend Park.  The fall colors…

It’s been quite an adjustment these last two months, but I’m now living in New Braunfels, TX (45min south of Austin; 30 min north of San Antonio) and working full time as a welder.  My mentor in the welding company says, “This is the Dark Side, because…
