Watercolor postcards

- So Light World -

Watercolor postcards as Christmas and Birthday presents.

The "Light Ones" are those without boundaries; they need to use weights to keep their minds into the real world. Weights such as the love for the others, the dreams and most of all the desires.


The "Post Office" is the same everywhere. 


The "Witch of Hearts and the Footprints Eaters" have no personality so they need to eat the footprints of the others in order to survive.


The "Swimming Pool". Enjoy the fun!!!


In "The Pinwheel's Garden" you can hear the music made by the pinwheel flowers every time the wind blows.


The "Door keepers" need to travel. But never alone.


"Mr. Tailor" is a bit deaf, so he binds many little bells on his net to find it, after a long day work.


"Mr. Scarecrow" is the best musician of the county. He plays a "mandolino" made of corn cobs and his fond audiences mainly consists of crows.

City Life Drawing, Sol Art Gallery Dublin, 13.12.16

This time I left before because I was still a bit sick, but I tried the method of finding the shapes before the actual drawings, and I think it works!

1) find the line of action
2) find the shape
3) be aware of the silhouette

Some shape studies as suggested by Alex Woo during Gesture Drawing class thanks to Schoolism.

I think this can be a very fun game to play this Christmas with my nieces. One person keep a pose for 1 minutes, the others depict the main shape in 30 sec with a marker and for the 30 sec left they have to finish the drawing with a pen :) (maybe as they are far young we can have longer poses).

The Theater

- So Light World - 

So Light World is my imaginary world. 
Here the main characters are the different ones.
Here they have their own voice without judgment. 
Here even the boundaries are different.

I'm having fun creating this and my purpose is to entertain you. So... hope you enjoy it!

The Theater is open from autumn to spring. Rumours say it Mr. Maestro will attend in winter.

I changed the sketchbook:
this is with smooth paper, useful for the health of my ink pens ;)

Now I've started to draw the masses, studying the same pose from different angles.

Warm and cosy.

City Life Drawing, Sol Art Gallery Dublin, 01.11.16

This time I studied the same position in different angles, in order to better understand how the planes of the volumes rotate. As usual the first drawings are fast (1 min x pose) in order to catch the power of the gesture. 

1 min (Copic multi liner)

10 min (Micron 03, exhaust)

20 min (Palomino Blackwing pencil)

The Theater is open from autumn to spring. Rumours say it Mr. Maestro will attend in winter.

And so this is the end of my first INKtober. And I did it!!!!!!!
This was for me a chance to depict my imaginary world. Obviously at the beginning I was super scared about it, because it's not about technic. You will never feel enough skilled anyway. No. It's because is intimate. But I'm studing drawing with the purpose of speaking my voice, not just to do pretty drawings. Therefor thanks to everybody that used to encourage me to keep going with a like, a message or peeking over my shoulder to check the new subject of the day and all the INktober attendants!

The Legend of the Singing Holes has it that during The Harvest Festival you can clearly hear a song coming from the holes of the Central Field. It's Mr. Bulldozer looking for his mate.

City Life Drawing, Sol Art Gallery Dublin. 25.10.16

I'm happy with my new marker for the gesture poses (a black Copic Multi Liner M) and moreover with my last drawing. In the latest the perspective and the sense of weight was very hard to depict, but I didn't change my spot in order to take this new challenge. My studies become every day more interesting.

Lady Victory and The Podium Builders are preparing themselves for the next challenge. She is massive as a mountain and patiently counts the time stream. They are noisy, frenetics and change position all of a sudden.
