While I’m spending a little time doing some figurative work, here’s a brief post on a few nature themed pieces I still have available in store for the homes of some lovely collectors. More works of adorable creatures and botanicals are soon to come. In the meantime be sure to visit the Art of Q. Rumbley.
It’s been a while since I’ve drawn a human and I have to say I was a bit concerned as I was sketching out this base drawing, for a minute there I thought I forgot how to draw a face. For some reason it literally felt like my brain had to switch into some different mode just to complete this sketch. And to tax my brain even more, I’ll also be inking this in color, which is something I haven’t done in a while either. So I’ll have to pull out my little hand drawn color wheel to get myself familiar again.
I think I get why some artists stick to drawing just one or two types of subject matter, there’s less visual vocabulary you have to remember.
My brain hurts right now. 😯
A week ago I was doing a bit of research on North American animals when I came across an image of a bison. Upon looking at this iconic creature I immediately thought of my father which prompted me to look into any symbolic meaning that may be attached to them. Come to find out bisons are a symbol of strength and stubbornness, which definitely reminds me of my dad. So for the past couple of days I’ve been busy inking away on this drawing to give to my dear father for Father’s Day, who has been a pillar of consistency and dependability in my life…and from whom I probably get my stubbornness, according to my husband. 😊
Well, I don’t have much to say about this one except woohoo, I’m done…now on to something new. 😊
Lately I’ve been so focused on slicing up erasers and making stamps that I almost forgot about this piece I started. My first love is ink so I’m taking a moment from carving and getting back to inking. It can be a challenging task balancing two crafts but being a little versatile helps to keep me from getting bored or burnt out on one thing.
