Fun with Crayons and Markers

Having worked Toys R Us for the Holiday seasons, I thought why not buy crayons markers and other materials usually considered children's art supplies, just to practice with and save myself some money, in regards to the more expensive traditional artist supplies.
 What I ended up producing from Crayola Crayons and the Toys R Us brand, Imaginarium Doodle Pad was surprisingly decent.
 When I was a child I used markers to draw along with Captain Bob on weekend mornings - so I wasn't so surprised what could be done with markers, but also I use highlighter markers for shading and effects.
I remember as perfecting the techniques a lot better as a child than now, none the less still producing some very decent works.

Markers and Highlighters

I did try other brands of crayon and doodle pads, but I prefer Crayola Crayons and Imaginarium doodle pads from Toys R Us.

More Stone Cairns

This one is from a year ago on North Beach in Hampton NH,
to date it is my favorite.

South of Odiorne Point in Rye NH is a small beach that has a rocky outcrop, that every summer is covered with cairns.
This past summer I was able to create a simple one.
 Did not have the time to invest in it as much as I would have liked.

As time goes by

recently an old friend and artist model reminded me of the good ol' days, - a flash from my past- the drawings I was producing back in the mid 1990s. 2 young masters at their craft.

Stone Works Part One

over the past 4 years I have been building sculptures with rocks and stones.
here are some photos of those works.
These stone sculptures I built last year in my back yard.

This one is around 3 feet tall and was built over 2 days.

This is a stone wall with a round opening in it - the wall is just about a foot tall but it was still difficult to build - once the initial arch is set the rest of the wall becomes progressively easier as the weight adds to the support and strength of the arch. These photos show the stages over 2 days in the wall's construction.
