At the gallery by MJBivouac
At the gallery
I don't like to post photos of myself...but I make an exception here. Yes, I'm old and loosing my hair. Except for the two shrubberies that started to grow out of my ears a few years ago.
Here I am with my Jupiter 2 painting at the Carter Sexton Art Supply art show: "I Love Sci-Fi". My first gallery showing ever...well since I was in high school anyway. I had a great time. I had a lot of very nice comments on the work.
Tony the Boxer by MJBivouac
Tony the Boxer
Attended an "Open Studio" session this morning. The model was "Tony" wearing only jeans and boxing gloves. The ladies loved that.
Colored pencils and watercolor on Canson colored art paper.
After class Tony's girlfriend liked my drawing so much she offered to buy it. I gave her a VERY good price...and she was very happy. I had to quickly snap a couple of cell phone photos before she spirited the drawing away for ever. I'm such a sucker for a pretty face.

Based on a photo of the adorable:
I have taken a few liberties with certain features. But that is one cute backside. I hope she isn't offended.

Night Lake by MJBivouac
Night Lake
Another painting sample to demonstrate a potential art class possibility. This time painted in acrylics and done in a couple of hours. A friend suggested an acrylics class might do better in our area as the paint dries quickly and it is less expensive than oils. I cranked this out to see what I could do with the medium but QUICKLY.
I hadn't painted on raw canvas in a long time and the paint gave me some trouble. It just wouldn't flow of the brush the way I wanted it to. I prefer smoother painting surfaces I guess.I think I need to try this again on a smooth panel. I think I also need to differentiate more between the tree line and the clouds' color and form. 
Thoughtful Hat by MJBivouac
Thoughtful Hat
Did this at a two hour Open Studio session this morning.
Live model, pencil, Koh-I-Nor colored pencils and watercolor, on Canson colored pastel paper. The image here is almost actual size of the drawing.
Came out "Okay". The likeness is pretty good. Hand turned out a bit small I think. The model never managed to get 100% back into the correct position after very break period and that made things a little difficult.

Nice one! Very cute.

Indeed! It's too bad there's never wallpaper-sized alternates of this sort of image.
MJBivouac Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2015
Hmmm, it's still rather large...and I think one could create a decent wallpaper/desktop using the image rather successfully.

Wonderful gallery! So many varied styles and yet one can tell they're from the same person. :clap:
Touched by the Lost In Space art, saw the show in reruns in the 70s as a boy.
