Love both, nice compositions!

love the directness of this, and the composition is a pleasure - the body language is great too:)

01-10-2007, 06:18 AM
Hi dear! Loved the garlic drawing. YOu did so wonderful.

What was the reference for the second one? Was it a painting or a photo. LOoks very classical themed.

Good to stop by and check up on you. :)

01-10-2007, 11:41 AM
thank you azul,,and the lovely rose for stopping by....the period piece was from a photo....tyree:wave:

01-11-2007, 12:18 PM
I like the simplicity of your period piece Tyree. Also, your extremely close clop on the garlic made it very abstract, which I like as well.

01-11-2007, 02:47 PM
You have some very nice dark values on this for graphite. Its nice to see such contrasts.

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/12-Jan-2007/65063-assignment_1.jpg this is assignment one in the d/s class that diane is teaching...how to draw clouds....mine are overworked...but im going to keep working at it..she will also be teaching other landscape methods..if anyone is interested...thanks everyone for kind comments and for looking....tyree:wave:

01-13-2007, 03:05 PM
Very well done tyree. I as well thought the garlic made a nice adstract composition. The period piece is exceptional, just enough detail to tell the story. BRAVO

01-15-2007, 03:24 PM
I missed your decanter the first time. I like how chunky and sharp you made it look. And again, you've abstracted it -- love that! What's the size on the acrylic canvas paper one? Op is oil paint, yes?

01-18-2007, 05:06 PM
yes alecto..op is oil pastels...very messy.. acrylic canvas paper was 9x12...thanks for looking...tyree:D

01-19-2007, 08:53 AM
Tyree - you are an inspiration - you have been making art----my favorite is the bear-----my muzzle is down in that grass with that guy......and my eyes love the background, I feel the cool stirring breese and the smell of the ground and leaves.......

The decanter is balanced contrasts & greys - something I am striving to work toward.....

The plater is a lovely flittering- between- abstract- realism experience.

01-21-2007, 04:10 PM
Susan your sketches are great! Really like the Chinese warriors!
The one before this, what is it? It looks like a jewel! Very pretty.
Are you keeping these in a book? Just wondering?

01-21-2007, 08:06 PM
nickel...lol...:p its strawberry shortcake on a flower plate...:lol: no not in a book..i start sketchbooks..but dont complete them..i should though...tyree

01-21-2007, 10:41 PM
Ok, gee, :o I really thought it was something else, pretty like a Russian jeweled decorated egg but I don't know, maybe it is my eyes........oops, I see the strawberry shortcake now. Yummy! It's not you but just me. I just kept following the lines and not seeing the big picture. Is that weird? Don't answer that ;) The reason I asked about a journal, I looked at altered books last night and thought it'd be cool to put some art in one. Lately, most of my sketches on whatever kind of paper I used are stacked in a cardboard box. I don't finish books either. Thanks for answering my questions:wave: Nickel

02-07-2007, 10:04 AM
tyree, you are definately kick:D ing b__ and taking names. You art is evolving so nicely. Show that practice truely makes perfect. I am really liking your abstract pieces. (I got the shortcake by the way). Way cool chineese wariors.


02-07-2007, 12:17 PM
You seem to have a tendency to play up the abstract component of an image, which I like very much. I'm starting to see a color trend. :) BTW, I like very much the circular/oblong movement in the last piece that flows (for me) from the blue sky to the orange on the right, then under the trunk, around to the subdued orange/green space to the left of the tree and back up to the blue. Very nice!

02-07-2007, 09:11 PM
I'm watching! :)
I'll agree you are on a roll with your art! Don't stop! N

02-21-2007, 09:02 AM
this is a very interesting drawing. I mean the boats are in the foreground but the impression I'm left with is that of the grass, sand and water....the atmosphere of the place is what you have captured....I really like it and keep going back to look at it......

I am missing out on tooo much fun!
Susan, these are excellant!

Growl!!!!!!!!!!said the tiger going
through the tall grass! I'm hungry!

I like the sun light on he/she's back.
I can't tell a female from a male. Sorry;)

AN the elephant, this one sneaked in, I hadn't
seen it.
Also, I like how you did the sun light
here too.
That was funny about the blood on the rock.
You should have said it was peanut juice. :D ;)

04-17-2007, 05:24 PM
On the first tree - I like the way the shadow leads to the tree and the lacy shadow, and the tree is kinda ephemeral feeling - not fluffy but light

The second one has some good wood grains - you are getting better and better with the pencils :)

05-03-2007, 09:12 AM
that is good Tyree - you really got me to keep going back to the eyes and of course I kept expecting her to brush the wisp of hair back or bob up and down in the water slightly :p

05-03-2007, 10:36 AM
Here's my five cents, it's great! Don't touch it!
Don't do anything different.
This drawing has emotion and feeling.
Her eyes speak.

I wish I could do her and show what you have shown about her.

05-08-2007, 12:18 AM
I like the little heart leaves on the flower. And the light playing in the room.
The red looks just right.
Your kiwis look just like themselves too.
Not my favorite fruit cause I think they look really funny in real life.
I like seeing the little wild strokes, adds interest. :)

Hi ladies... I had a lot of trouble getting in this website lately... my antivirus kept giving me virus alerts ! I'm glad to back again as it seems that all the trouble is solved now ...I couldn't help trying to get in again and again !!
It's a long time since I visited tyree's doodles... you can't call these doodles... it's a real gallery! You are getting SO personal... I find you have grown a lot since I first saw your work last year! The animals are really good ... and pastels ARE messy ... I know a lot about that too!

The girl in the swimming pool has a lot of spontaneity! The only fault I can find in it is that the eyes are too close and her face thus seems a bit crooked compared to the ideal line which connects her mouth to them... I don't think it's wrong to give a look at each other's mistakes .. we can learn a lot from each other, you know.. just as long as the critiques are intelligent and aren't only aiming to discourage ! I know a lot about that too...unfortunately !
I wouldn't try to correct your drawing... it's just nice just the way it is!

We are all trying to improve ourselves... and are growing and growing !:thumbsup:

Great Work!

Mony :cool:

05-31-2007, 11:07 PM
Boy if I could do these on the run I'd buy some running shoes :)
Susan these are great. My fav is the smile on the second one.
I like the nose on the first one and color of the grizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzly on the third! I think he bites. :) Bravo dear! Each one is so good and better than the last! Your smoking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Thanks for showing them! I'm loving them! :) Nickel

This kitty is such a pleasing piece. The depth, the compo., the feeling/expression - the tentativeness of a cat- outstanding:thumbsup:

06-15-2007, 10:55 AM
Hi Tyree! Your boats on the beach give a nice sense of place. Personally, I'm allergic to landscapes, but you did a remarkable job on a difficult subject. I especially like the value shifts around the image -- very atmospheric. The light lights and dark darks of the center boat puts it firmly in the foreground, while the greyed-out and fuzzy background gives a nice sense of distance.

On your fruit shop, you got a nice amount of detail without making it overwhelming. How big is that one? It looks like it might be a very small drawing, which would make it even more interesting, detail-wise.

If you're disappointed at your photos of stained-glass windows, I recommend you draw them from now on. Your version is lovely and well-done. The figures are well-proportioned, with just enough delineation to make the scene readable, and the colors work well to define the forms, even where two panels of similar value come together.

Your oil pastel with the red sky is hard to see on my monitor, but from what I can see, your use of color is intriguing (and brave!).

Your cotton sock ponies work very well as an abstract. I have a real soft spot in my heart for representational pieces that are abstracted (as opposed to "pure" abstracts, which I have absolutely no use for -- sorry for the strong insertion of opinion there, but I'm terribly offended by art that starts nowhere and goes nowhere). And your willingness to dive right into bold colors is inspiring!

Very cute kitten! The transition from fur to negative space around his left paw (right, as we're looking at it) is especially successful.

Nice tree studies. I especially like the first one, where the tree becomes one with the background and ground through bleeding of value (the lost edges) on the mid-right and lower left edges of the trunk.

The elephant is, again, a nice abstraction. The rock may have stood out (to the individual who thought that it's covered in blood) because it's the only object that varies widely in color (which also kind of makes it the focal point). Maybe if you could have included red as a blend (like the trees) instead of in distinct patches, it might have been less forcefully the center of attention. I definitely like the blue/grey in the rock though -- adds a welcome cool touch to the image.

The tiger: another brave, vibrant image. It looks like you're working fairly small with your pastels.

The top tree in the next two studies is very nice! There's a sense of lacy leafiness in the canopy, but also a sense of movement from the blurred light patches. Most people try too hard to draw leaves when they do trees, but you modeled the masses and that definitely works better. Excellent depth through value as well. To my eye, it's one of the nicest things you've done.

Your pool girl is nice overall. I'm especially attracted to the hair at her hairline and the wispy light bits sticking out around the side of her face.

Nice work on the pot of geraniums! You're obviously not afraid of the dark. ;-) I really like the way you layer to create unblended areas of pure color that play off each other and help the eye move around and find interest all over (for example, the fuchsia-like color that peeks out from under the purple stripes of the table, from beneath and between the geraniums, and at the edges of the slats).

Love, love, love your kiwis! It's nice in the abstract, has wonderful deep darks, the colors play well together, and I even like the messiness -- it introduces bits of smudgy color from the central objects into the "negative space". For some reason I'm especially drawn to the smudgy light blue bit in the lower left corner, maybe because it doesn't appear anywhere else in the image. I really do think your colors are outstanding in this one.

Your next two, the portraits, have me thinking that when you start laying down pastel, you just go without looking back. I don't see any evidence of overworked edges, muddy colors or hesitation. A good example is around the edges of phoebecat's face where you have what looks like decisive, unblended strokes of black, and all around the eyes where the short, strong strokes really give life, and at her part where the dashes of highlighting are perfect. I also like that you don't confuse the non-essential parts (outside the face area) with too much detail -- the focus stays strongly on the face. (I do think the phoebecat one is more successful in that respect.)

Your door and lock piece is very satisfying: it has distinct textures, an excellent range of values, and ... it's just nicely done!

Of the next three, I especially like the dancer. Again, abstraction! It's also very moody and has some impressively deep darks.

I really like the shaving brush. Again, strong abstraction. (Are we sensing a theme?) ;-) Again, impressive darks, Again, lovely, unblended broken color around the top edge of the brush handle and the rim of the pitcher. I feel like you're beginning to display hints of a strong style in your pastel pieces. (I envy you: I bounce around all over the place in my ways of depicting; my hand can't quite seem to find an approach it's comfortable with. Definite envy here!)

Man, Tyree, you've really hung in there. You inspire me!

06-20-2007, 08:44 AM
you are good - you managed to hang on to the darks details in her hair-

The flower is great . It looks like a sunshine-catcher. It's leaves are good, too. The background looks a little flat is there something that is causing that?

06-20-2007, 01:14 PM
:wave: hi azul...my gypsy does look woeful:p doesnt she....the flower one..i had a time with...im terrible at flowers...and i did struggle with the bg...i finally just made it dark and used the electric eraser to do the tiny leaves...they do need more to them...not one of my favorites...tyree

Still, it's pleasing to look at. I think you did an especially nice job on the fenders. And, again, you weren't afraid to lay in some dark darks. Very nice!

I never saw the original photo, but water generally creates a line of demarcation where it meets an object, with the water being darker than the object it touches.

I've noticed that you work almost exclusively with shapes -- very few lines. It makes the lost edges (like along the rope) especially effective. I like it!

:wave: alecto...thank you for noticing that..i see things in shapes and it is how i draw it...tyree:heart:

That's really interesting about seeing line v shapes.

I like the boat and water, and I kind of like not seeing
the break between boat and water, my mind just kind of
put it there anyway.

I like it.

Your work makes me smile!
I love the look on the bears face.....he's tooooo sweet...
and I know he really shouldn't look that sweet, I think it's charisma a thing but also a proud look to his, I assume him, his character.

The beach hut, you hit a mood again there, I sense the experience
of the ocean, the breeze, the smell of the sea.

And your apple looks like you worked from life.

Bravo, you are doing really well and like I wrote, you are making me smile with your art too.
Thanks for making me smile.

I wouldn't have said that you went color crazy with the apple -- it looks like perfectly natural way to depict one. Nice! Your hut intrigues me. What medium did you use on that one?

Well, you got some impressive deep-darks with that mechanical pencil -- the tones in that hut look like compressed charcoal. I love -- as I've said before -- that you're not afraid of going dark.

I was already typing about how your newest ones have that miniature look before I noticed the little sentence at the end of your post. Very nice. You really managed to play up the abstract qualities in the radishes, coffeepot, and butterfly ones. The butterfly and radishes are especially interesting to me. Nice work!

So how do you like working in miniature?

I was just looking at your thread here. Great drawings! On this last page, I just love the kneeling girl with the flying hair--she's fantastic. Everything else is great too, but she just really caught my eye.
