Today’s artwork is of a green bug on a pink flower. I had previously done this same subject in oils and I decided to give it a try in colored pencils. The painting was done in colored pencil on a 6″ x 6″ sheet of Stonehenge paper.
Today’s painting is of some Mules that I took when I was at Grand Canyon National Park last summer. The painting was done in oils on an 8″ x 10″ wood panel.
Today’s artwork is of the Morgan County Courthouse in the beautiful town of Madison Georgia. The entire town is filled with beautifully preserved stately old mansions and other historic buildings. The 8″ x 10″ artwork was done in colored pencil on Stonehenge Paper.
Today’s artwork is a colored pencil painting of the former Dahlonega Georgia Courthouse. Constructed in 1836, it is the oldest surviving courthouse in Georgia. The building is in the Federal Style with Greek Revival Influences. The courthouse was designed by Ephraim Clayton and with its two foot thick walls took over two years to construct. The building is no longer used as a courthouse but instead serves as a Gold Museum. The museum houses exhibits depicting America’s first major gold rush that occurred in the town of Dahlonega in the mountains of North Georgia. The bricks of the courthouse were constructed with local clay and contain small visible flecks of gold. The 8″ x 10″ painting was done in colored pencil on Stonehenge paper.
I don’t really know the official name of these flowers (I have always referred to them as trumpet flowers). They grew wild in New Mexico but I have seen them in people’s gardens in Upstate New York so they must thrive in a wide range of conditions. The work shown here was done in colored pencil on a 6″ x 8″ sheet of Stonehenge Paper.
Today’s artwork is of the Union County Courthouse in Blairsville Georgia. The 8′ x 8″ work was done in colored pencil on Stonehenge paper.
Today’s painting is of a pink rose that was growing in our garden in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The painting was done in colored pencil on a 6″ x 6″ sheet of Stonehenge Paper.
