New Work In Progress

Tonight I began a new graphite sketch based on a scene I had in my mind for quite a while. At first I thought to sketch some nymphs bathing on the river but the drawing told me otherwise. It shaped itself so that only a small dragon can be added flying close to the cliff. Well I'll think about that while working on it. The castle is Saint Michael's: just for a change because I drew of it only seven or eight times.

Old City Map end

Today I have completed my watercolor painting of an old map of my city, I suppose dating to the eighteenth century.
A very teaching painting indeed.

Old City Map 1

I think I have completed the bistro phase of my map painting. Just this gives the idea of three dimensional buildings, isn't it?

Old City Map

Today I worked a bit on the painting I'm busy with. That brownish color is coffee, while everything else is watercolor painting. I think I'm going to paint the whole of it with just the three primary colors.

New Work In Progress

This afternoon I completed the preliminary sketch of a watercolor painting to be. Based on an old watercolor painting whose picture I've found exposed sometime on the shop of my city.

Goldrake

Today I worked on this drawing which portrays a hero of my childhood (and my old age too) from the genius of Mr Go Nagai, drawn with charcoals. I still need to look at it with unaccustomed eyes for mistakes and improvements so this may not be the completed version.

Three Towers

Tonight I was in the mood to try an ink drawing on a credit card shaped cardboard saved from the waste bin. I thought to find an explanation on why Saint Michael's castle has only three towers left: that's because of the dragons obviously!
