My own rendition of Michaelangelo’s PIETA. I was inspired by the dark haunting drawings of German artist Kathe Kollowitz. I tried to evoke deeper intimacy of the sadness in this piece. Not sure if I succeeded, do let me know. Greatly appreciated. 🙂

Sketch Gallery : Bodies The Exhibit

April 13, 2014


Last month I went to the Bodies The Exhibit held at the former Movieland Wax Museum in Buena Park (conveniently just minutes away from my home) and marveled at the well preserved body parts and figures set up in interesting poses. And to think these are REAL human bodies, their identities unknown. It’s my first shot at on site sketching, armed with a giant sketchbook and a pencil I probably spent at most five minutes per figures, so as to not get in the way of other visitors.

Figure Gallery 3

A continuation of my figure drawing showcase, this time with color.  Not too many here I’m afraid, could only get it done on long poses. Someday soon I’ll try a little ‘speed’ painting with shorter poses…
