December 2010

…just in time for your last minute shopping!

Two new paintings in the shop. Well, they aren’t necessarily new, but they’re new…to the shop. AND if you purchase before December 31, with the holiday code EGGNOG, you get an additional 20% off! And they each include free shipping! Also in the shop- the next drawing of 100 Drawings, at a special holiday rate! It’s number 10 of 100 Drawings, the biggest one yet, and would normally retail at $200, but I’m putting it up as a holiday treat and keeping the price down to $150. Hurry, this one won’t last! Unless it does.

Hope everyone’s holiday season is going well, as well as any shopping, family and home prep. Best wishes to all on this joyous festival of seasonal winter celebratory joy time!

Number Nine…

…veering more and more away from a simple drawing.

Number Nine of 100 Drawings is done, available in the shop here. This one went through many changes, experiments and it was a fun evolution. I want to get back to this super strong contrast in future works, as I think it turned out rather interesting. Ink drawing, built up with acrylic washes and blocked in with heavier acrylics. Much of the original detail was lost, but I’m pleased with the result. Don’t forget to use code: EGGNOG in the store all through the month of December for 20% off. Enjoy!

Number Eight is here…

by ncwinters on December 8, 2010

…at long last!

Man, I start something up and I make it a few weeks, TOPS with any kind of consistency. The eighth “drawing” of 100 Drawings is done, which points to part of the problem. See, these were originally supposed to be ink drawings, sketches, maybe a bit of watercolor or what have you, and instead they’ve turned into full fledged little paintings. Here I am trying to convince myself I’m a drawer and not a painter, and invariably I’m right back on the horse. I’m not really complaining mind you, I’m happy with how they’re turning out, and damn my perfectionism to not just stop early.

But I’m getting better.

Should be a slew of “drawings” coming up soon. For sure in the New Year, I’ll be better about posting. You can bookmark this page for when I eat my words later. Oh, and some people have been asking- the 100 Drawings drawings that are no longer in the shop are sold. They’re going quick, so snatch ’em up fast! You can see all the drawings here, even if they get bumped out of the shop. I had a lot of fun with this one. Another great example of a drawing that gets done much quicker when it’s done in just two sittings. I’m finding that if I start a new drawing and then stop to work on a new drawing, it’s rare to come back to the original project with any kind of timeliness. Better to just grind through and get it done! This one was started on a Monday night and finished Tuesday evening. Enjoy!
