New Year´s resolutions

Draw, draw, draw....did I mention draw? Now seriously: I spent 2012 practicing gesture drawing heavily, trying to make it a habit. This will remain during 2013, but I aim to increase the load on finished pieces.
Earlier today I was reading Walt Stanchfield Lectures volume II and stepped into the following Sanskrit poem related to this new year´s resolutions we all do by the end of the year and forget during January:

Look to this day 
for it is life
the very life of life
In its brief course lie all
the realities and truths
of existence.
The joy of growth
the splendor of action
the glory of power
For yesterday is
but a memory
And tomorrow is 
only a vision
But today well lived
makes every yesterday
a memory of happiness
and tomorrow a vision
of hope
Look well, therefore,
to this day!

Have a great 2013:)

Tutorial de Aquarela

Documentei a criação da aquarela abaixo, como um exercício de passo-a-passo, filmando cada estágio da concepção original da ideia até a pintura final.
Espero que gostem, e que esta possa auxiliar aqueles que estão iniciando na pintura com aquarela ou simplesmente buscando informações a respeito desta.
Um abraço,

O processo foi documentado em 3 partes:

Parte 1 - Link -
Conceito da pintura, referência fotográfica, composição, materiais, estudo de tons e estudo de cores.

Parte 2 - Link -
O desenho, transferência do esboço para o papel de aquarela, máscara líquida e fixação do papel
Parte 3 - Link -
Terceira e última parte do tutorial, cobrindo cada passagem desta pintura em aquarela, através de diversas velaturas (camadas de tinta sobrepostas).

Sanguine Drawings

Practice pieces 11x9". After long hiatus on these (Contè & similar pencils)< I had re-discovered the joy of using these. Bellow drawings were created on watercolor paper - more tooth- and plain drawing paper w/ no tooth.
