  • Walk the line Wednesdays: Week 56

    Continuing to examine Paul Klee's famous quote "a drawing is taking a line for a walk", I'll be attempting to challenge myself by adding a drawing a week to this blog, mind you, the idea for me is to keep it as simple as possible, laying down only the lines that are needed to communicate the idea.

    As usual, to see how these mere thumbnail sketches designed to be used for composition & value maps can be instrumental to the success of fully completed painings, check out the Gallery or the Available works pages on this site. Some of these will be developed into studies, others full blown paintings & quite a few left as is, in anticipation of future development. Priorities, right!?

  • Just Powder- No Lines

    Before going back to Walk the line Wednesdays and all that is being explored with  the singularity of line, I thought I'd give a nod to what can be done with ZERO lines, using the same meduim (graphite) , in this work, it is just arranged as powder, brush & eraser. Look as hard as you will and despite the appearance of lines ( created with a supertiny Rigging brush ) with the exception of the signature, this is all just - powder.

  • Bowring Park Busy Body

    Completed on the occasion of my Mothers 75th Birthday. She is an avid duck enthusiast and wherever she goes, if there are any at all - she simply HAS to go visit and feed the ducks. This one's for you Mudder, Happy Birthday!  Hope it is everything you wish it to be. Thank you for being who you are.  Love and miss you always.

  • Walk the line Wednesdays: week 52

    Thought it was week 52 - a full year -and then done, right!? Nope.

    I've recieved so many positive comments and requests to continue posting these small glimpses into my art practice and process that I'm going to try and round out the calendar year and keep going till Christmas 2019.
    At least, that's the challenge - 'Walk the line Wednesdays'.
    And  thanks to everyone for coming along on this odd ride with me so far, I continue to enjoy your company :)

    Cheers

  • "Taking in the wind"

    Just recently added to the gallery section of my site www.regcantwell.com.
    Made as a present for my Valentine - Jude : ) In a a similar way that the translucent fur of Polar Bear serves as a prism of sorts, reflecting, refracting and radiating the light, her spirit radiates an endless abundance of positivity and hope which is an inspiration, always.
