Drawing from experience

Kissimmee artist Arlene Conow says her artworks interpret the moods and complexity of life.

Sara Sheckler

Although Arlene Conow draws with charcoal and charcoal pencils, creating surrealistic faces and people, she says her children Kathleen and Brendan are her greatest works of art.

"They are my masterpieces," Conow said.

Conow, who lives with Kathleen, 10, and Brendan, 4, in Kissimmee, calls the style of her art "very free and abstract."

"My style is the reflection, or I could call it the evolution, of what I love the most, which is sculpture," she said.

Several of her drawings are on exhibit at Kissimmee's City Hall.

Conow, 37, was born in Puerto Rico and lived there through high school. Before settling in Kissimmee in 2004 she lived in the United States Virgin Islands and Pembroke Pines.

For the past two years Conow has worked nearly nonstop on her art, but she began drawing about 23 years ago.

"I have been drawing because I had a house, and what a shame to have other people work on my walls when everyone knows I am an artist," she said.

Conow attended Escuela Central de Artes Visuales, an art school in Puerto Rico, from 1984 to 1988. Students there were able to take classes in a variety of media until they reached 10th grade. At that point an art major must be chosen.

For Conow, that was sculpture. "Then afterward, I just practiced and did some more work on my own, and tried different styles, to where I am now," she said.

One day she decided to put down on paper events that had transpired in her life that day.

"Not as words but as drawings, things I remembered or comments from people -- whatever stayed in my head. I drew it my way," she said.

Conow, a member of the Osceola Center for the Arts, prefers to work with earth colors, so her drawings showcase browns, reds and grays.

Her subjects vary.

"Some are simple and some are very complicated. My drawings are like moods: They express happiness, curiosity, laughter, envy or love. Some drawings have a lot of symbolism and some are just what they are. I see them as interpretations of life," she said.

One of her creations is called "The Gossiper."

"It is about how we all like to sometimes share a little bit more than other people really need to know; you can see it in the big lips and the eyes are like coming out because it wants to see more than is out there," she said.

Whatever the subject, Conow connects deeply with her drawings.

"I love all of my work. They all say something different."

Reporter: Liz Collin

His work is already published daily in a local newspaper but a Lancaster County man hopes the internet will lead to an even bigger break for his comic strip.

Mike Witmer created "44 Union Avenue" about three years ago. It's named after the New Holland address where he grew up. Just recently his work was picked up by the online group GoComics.com.

Witmer has loved to draw his whole life and his inspiration for his strip comes from his everyday life. He says his kids, work, and even a phrase will be enough to base a daily strip on.

There are musicians who are more than comfortable remaining anonymous. You know, happy to hide behind their guitars or keyboards and be sidemen to the stars of today or tomorrow. Then there are those that have grandiose aspirations of stardom, adoration and limelight. And then there are those who have a driving desire and need to say something original artistically, to express themselves and to communicate that expression to an audience, be it a small niche market or wider demographic.

Those falling into the first category can make a living, albeit fairly modest as a general rule. Those falling into the second category often live in a little bit of a dream world and, depending on their tenacity and 'smart' skills, usually end up disappointed because the focus is set on the destination rather than the journey. The third category usually reaps the rewards of the second category gaining all the success and limelight, but as a result of focusing on their art rather than the shallow and flighty end of the musician's world. These are usually the most fascinating people too, because they generally have a little mystery about them and because they actually possess what most entertainers really want; sincere and dedicated talent!

But there are also those that are in the early stages of artistic development who are still learning their craft, and open to influences. Possibly they will become great artists in the future, possibly not. It will be a question of choices and consequences, and doors opened and opportunities taken advantage of - or not. Life certainly will take you places.

But for those that do have aspirations of artistry and expression, then I firmly believe you must have qualities that others do not have. As an artist I believe one must stand out from the herd in order to be heard. It is so easy to make a record these days. One no longer needs to have the luxury of a recording contract in order to stand on a pedestal and say "I am an artist - buy my record!" With home studios costing one 16th of the price they did ten years ago and with software programs that do it all, you can churn out albums by the dozen if you put your mind to it. And many do.

However, just because you can, why would you? - is my question. Just for fun? OK, valid I suppose. But Isn't it better to spend that time and energy searching relentlessly for something unique and different? God knows record companies are releasing enough mediocrity by the hour. Even signed artists are now under the impression they have something to offer. Maybe they have, but for the most part I don't think so (as public reaction and their CD sales will attest!)

Perhaps I am being extremely unfair, but I think too many artists do not realize that they have a responsibility to say something profoundly unique, certainly if they expect any kind of career longevity. We live in a world where musicians spend their lives emulating their heroes; singers spend their lives emulating Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra and so on. Rock guitarists spend their lives emulating Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Paige, Jeff Beck and Eddie Van Halen. Jazz guitarists are proud emulators of Pat Metheny, John Scofield and Wes Montgomery. Saxophone players worship Charlie Parker, John Coltrane and Michael Brecker. And so on...

Before I go on I have to say that emulating heroes is absolutely imperative in your formative years as musicians. You simply MUST listen to the greats, past and present. One has to have a strong grounding and musical knowledge and one simply cannot get there without listening. However, way too many 'artists' cannot get passed this stage. They need to have peer approval, have to know that other respected musicians around them recognize them and applaud their abilities. Often all this takes place subconsciously.

This 'peer approval' is a stage of development that is also important. Every musician goes through it at some point. It is absolutely natural, but I firmly believe that to become a great artist, you have to move beyond that stage and look inward. I always liken it those wedding band singers, who despite having an honorable and justifiable (and in some cases envious) career, they are all too often 'performing monkeys'. They are often fine vocalists but at the end of the day they are seeking approval and applause and not communicating or expressing anything artistic. They certainly know how to entertain but do they know how to intrigue? It's a huge gap. Nothing remotely subtle about it as far as I am concerned.

The real communicating artists seek unique expression. They are not interested anymore in sounding like their heroes. They have moved past that, now searching constantly, developing and refining their own unique voice. Look at any of the true giants of yesterday and today. Yes you can hear their references, but they also have their own strong identity. At some point during their development something bigger than them took over. The chances are they knew it at the time and took advantage of it and made an extra effort to really hone that uniqueness.

Finding that unique inner voice might not be as easy for some. I think it starts by recognizing your technical weaknesses. It is often those weaknesses that ultimately end up becoming your artistic strengths. Let's face it, if you were able to play the guitar technically perfect, at all speeds, meticulously so every note that came out was totally clean and audible, would this be ultimately interesting to an audience? Yes it might be very clever and impressive, but for how long could you listen to an album where every phrase felt like you were having your teeth drilled!!?

Wes Montgomery played with his thumb because he didn’t want to wake the neighbors, ultimately enabling him to become the greatest and most influential jazz guitarist of all time. BB King has about three licks in his entire blues repertoire. Does anyone NOT know BB King when they hear him? Thelonius Monk refused to conform to traditional piano techniques and musical ideas. He simply HAD to play music the way he heard it in his head. He made such a bold musical statement during his time that he is now emulated the world over and revered by the greatest musicians living today.

Technical shortcomings can be the very essence of your unique artistry. Now, should those shortcomings get in the way of what you need to say musically then those weaknesses might need to be turned around so they don't restrict what you hear in your head.

Remember, the true artist simply communicates from within. All other extraneous thoughts, influences and distractions need to fall by the wayside. The minute a lick or a phrase that your hero played or sung (and made famous) ends up on your record - watch out! You might be in trouble. Absolutely steal from your heroes, but just remember that real artistry is about what YOU have to say, not what your heroes have already said before, and have possibly said better.

Push yourself to the max and search for that truly unique quality within. After all, that next great talent we are all so desperately waiting for might just be you!

As an artist I find it hard to survive in a rural area where I live now. When I lived in Omaha I had shows just about every month. Now that I live in the small town of Hugo, Oklahoma I find it very difficult to get shows. When I am able to get shows, they are far away and are very few & far inbetween. I now find my best outlet to be the internet. It is not as much fun as it does not get me the reviews like when an artist deals straight with the public. I have also noticed that my art is not selling as good on the net as it had in person. In fact I find most of my sales are going thru EBay & the art is not bringing as much as it had from shows.

As far as getting gallery representation when you live in a rural area as I do now it is next to impossible. Most galleries only want you if you are close to them. When I was in Omaha I had 2 galleries represent me. But when I moved away from Omaha, they no longer wanted to represent me because I was going to be to faraway. Most galleries that claim to be looking for new artists usually won’t take artists that are not in their area. But if you talk to their employees you will find they always claim that, but in reality they have not taken any new artist in several years. Why they do this is beyond me! I have found when checking out a new gallery they are friendly until they find out you are an artist out of their area, then they seem to put on another face.

It seems it is harder for artist to sell their art, get gallery representation, or even get articles written about them nowadays than in the past. In the past art was something that was considered newsworthy and most newspapers were glad to print the articles and give reviews about shows. These days that is not so, it is very hard to get local newspapers to print much about art or artists. They claim that there is not a public interest no matter how good the story may be. National newspapers and newspapers from New York, Chicago, Atlanta and big cities as such usually still give reviews of art and artists.

To put it mildly, as an artist living in rural areas, promoting your art is difficult. It takes innovation and intestinal fortitude in order to be able to get recognition as an artist and to sell and promote it. But with the high cost of fuel and the high cost of shipping art it may now be that the only way to survive as an artist is the use of the internet with all its many connections and downfalls.

Much research and experimentation has been done on color and how it can effect a persons mood and behavior. Certain colors can calm a person, while others can stimulate excitement or cheerfulness. That being said, you may want to think carefully on the type of color scheme you choose for your next painting. This article will talk about five different color schemes you can use to plan out your next painting. The tips in this article can be applied to any painting medium.

Painting is all about harmony. Harmony in a painting is when the arrangement of colors and objects are pleasing to the viewers eyes. As a painter you can either put too much into a painting or not enough. If your painting is too chaotic you may scare the viewer away. On the other hand, if your painting lacks something, it may be perceived as boring, and your viewer will not be engaged, so it's important to have balance in your color arrangements.

ANALOGOUS COLOR SCHEME

This color scheme uses colors that are next to one another on the color wheel. With an analogous color scheme, one color is usually the dominant one, while the others serve as an accent to the dominant color. You are limited in colors when using this scheme but that does not mean your paintings have to be boring. Just vary the intensity (how dull or bright a color is) and value (how light or dark a color is) to make your painting more interesting and pleasing to the eye. An example of three colors next to each other on the color wheel, that can be used in an analogous color scheme are orange, yellow and yellow-orange. Use only a few different colors with the analogous color scheme. If you add too many, you may destroy the harmony in your painting.

COMPLEMENTARY COLOR SCHEME

The complimentary color scheme is a good choice if you want strong contrast in your painting. Complimentary colors are colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. Examples of complementary color schemes are reds with greens, oranges with blues and violets with yellows. You shouldn't feel limited when using this color scheme. For instance, instead of using plain orange, you could use colors on either side like red-orange and yellow orange. Instead of using plain blue, you could use combinations like blue-violet or blue green. You could also vary the intensity and values as well. It can be difficult to create balance with this color scheme. To avoid ruining harmony, choose one dominant color and use the complimentary color as accents. For instance in a yellow and violet complementary color scheme, you could make the main subject and background violets and accent remaining parts of the painting in yellows.

TRIADIC COLOR SCHEME

The triadic color scheme uses three colors that are evenly spaced or equidistant from one another on the color wheel. This scheme produces strong contrast but still retains harmony. This color combination is more challenging for beginners. You can get carried away by making all three colors too intense thereby destroying the balance in your painting. You should allow one color to dominate and use the two other colors to accent the rest of the painting.

MONOCHROMATIC COLOR SCHEME

This color scheme is probably the easiest for beginners to work with. The monochromatic color scheme uses variations in value and intensity of only one color. Beginners like this color scheme because they only need to create a value plan using one color, which makes things a lot easier. Your painting will not be as exciting as other schemes that utilize more than one color, but your painting will produce a peaceful and soothing effect.

SPLIT COMPLEMENTARY COLOR SCHEME

The split-complimentary color scheme uses three colors and is a twist on the complimentary color scheme. Instead of using the colors compliment, you will use the two colors adjacent to its compliment on the color wheel. For instance, Red, Yellow-Green and Blue-Green could be a split complimentary color scheme.

Don't let color theory intimidate or discourage you. Working with color in your paintings takes some getting used to. With time and practice you will begin to develop the eye of a good painter. A great way to learn more about the use of color in paintings is to view the art of experienced painters. Make some plans to head out to a museum or visit an online gallery. God Bless and Happy painting!

Drafting is also known as technical drawing, it is the method of creating drawing for architectures and engineering. A person who is skilled in this field is more popularly known as a draftsman.

The fundamentals of drafting are easy. To be able to draft something, a draftsman places a piece of paper (or other drawing material) on any surface that has straight sides and right angle corners (drafting table).

Another tool needed for drafting is a t-square. A t-square is a ruler-like tool that slides on a straight edge, making it easier for a draftsman to move his/her tool on the drafting table.

The t-square enables its users to draw parallel lines by moving this tool and running your pencils edge along its straight edge line.

T-squares can also be used to hold other drafting devices like a set of squares or triangles. This way, the right angle of the t-square plus the angle of the triangle can create a perfect straight and angled line onto your paper.

Modern day drafting tables now come equipped with parallel ruler supported by both sides of the table. This ruler can also slide through your drafting table, assuring you that parallel lines that you draw are going to turn out parallel.

Other drafting tools are used to create circles and curves. A primary tool used in drafting is the compass. This instrument is used to create simple circles in your drawing.

A French curve on the other hand, is a plastic curved ruler that helps create simple and complex curves for your project. For more intricate curves, a spline is a drafting tool that is made of an articulated metal covered in rubber to enable users to bend this tool in different curves.

The simplest drafting system needs to pay full attention to the placement of tools and the accuracy of the table. The most common mistake in drafting is to let the triangle push the top of the t-square slightly down. When this happens, it will throw off all the proper angles in your drawing.

Another common problem in the area of drafting is the difficulty in drawing two angled lines and making them meet at a point. Because this was such a tedious task, the introduction of the "drafting machine" came into the light of possibility.

This machine makes it possible for the draftsman to have a precise angle wherever part of the paper he wishes to draw at. He does this with the help of the pantograph.

A pantograph is a special mechanical tool connected to the drafting table that when used to draw, it moves in a fixed relation to every other element of itself. Also, one major advantage of the drafting machine enables the ability to modify angles, thus eliminating the use of triangles.

Drafting must seem easy to most people, but to be able to draft something, it requires a certain knowledge in engineering.

For a time, drafting was a sought after profession in the United States, considering that the draftsman was a very skilled at his craft. But because of the creation of the drafting machine, drafting has become fully automated and largely accelerated using computer aided design or CAD.

An innovation of CAD is the less recognized CADD or computer aided design and drafting. Although this may be the case, skilled draftsmen may still be of use to some who need routine changes to their drawings.

Drafting is an art common to architects, engineers, or machinist. Some of the uses of drafting are for birds eye view, elevations, plan view, isometric projections, cross sections and the like.

How To Draw People - A Quick Run Through the Art of Portrait Painting - how to draw 6

As an onlooker, you may have often marveled at the stunning portraits or oil paintings, without really thinking too much about what goes into creating one. As all would agree, painting is an art, but quite a demanding one at that! It’s not just about putting right colors in the right places; it also involves a good deal of techniques and strategies, integral to a great painting. An artist would of course know, and an aspiring artist would be interested in knowing the tricks of the trade. Let’s sweep through some of the essentials of portrait painting.

The Basic Starters:

To start off with your painting, you would need the following equipment. So keep them handy.




Brushes of all size and types (synthetic or natural bristles)

Basic painting colors (at least one full set)

A color palette to mix the paints/colors

A drawing board or canvas

Painting mediums like linseed oil or turps



Remember that watercolor brushes do not work well in oil paintings. Big brushes are best for oil paints. So choose your brushes and your paint carefully to come up with the finest quality painting which would find its place in an art gallery.

Follow Examples:

If you thought you cannot follow the footsteps of famed artists, you’re wrong. On the contrary, it’s a good practice to start copying the masterpieces and then move on to creating your own. But copying just the 2D painting isn’t as much a help as trying to recreate the same painting by choosing the same 3D subject.

Sequence Your Painting:

Be it a pet portraits, a person or a landscape, in portrait painting, it’s very important to know where to start from. Old wisdom says ‘start from the eyes’. So be it. It’s best to draw the eyes first and then move on to develop the other features on the face in the correct ratio. But focus on one section at a time, before jumping on to the next.

The Golden Rules:

Most painters forget to spend sufficient time looking at the subject. It’s a golden rule to spend 60% of the time looking at it, 20% time looking at your canvas and the rest 20% looking at what you’re actually painting. Look deep and analyze your subject to bring out the best on your painting.

Another golden rule is to be confident. Think well and believe in your subject. An artist should never be deterred by the feeling that he/she would not be able to do justice to the subject.

So even if you are attempting a dog portraits, just enjoy doing it as you’d enjoy being with your dog. That makes the job much easier. Analyze its features, work your way outwards from the eyes, believe in yourself and bring the painting to life.

Regardless of all the statements and talk about what is the oldest profession in the world, drafting is the only profession that historically can be documented.

Drafting can be defined as a descriptive way to deliver an idea through the use of illustrations and drawings that show in detail the process of turning the idea into reality. This process dates back to thousands of years ago when primitive drafters illustrated on the walls of caves the processes by which they lived, hunted, worshipped, and died.

Since that time, this process has changed little except for the drafting supplies and tools used to draw, paint, and preserve the illustrations. The greatest changes are noted during the Egyptian and Chinese Empires and the development of rice paper and the methods of presenting ideas. This was the beginning of drafting as we know it today. Other than the drafting tools and equipment used to make drawings more accurate and legible, very little changed until the creation of the modern electronic devices that we have used over the last 75 years. Drafting is the basis of everything that is usable.

Mathematics and science are the foundations from which drafters work. There is nothing manufactured or process carried out without the aid of drafting. Everything that a person can hold in their hand, feel, or touch has some type of drawing or illustration created for the production of that product. When most people think of drafting, they think of skyscrapers, beautiful homes, or maybe a complicated electronic device such as a computer.

There are almost 100 different work disciplines for drafters and designers. These include aerospace, highways, parks and recreation, electronic, nano-technology, medical, furniture, high-voltage electricity, automotive, and many more.

Think about all the equipment and gadgets used in hospitals. Consider all the tools that are used during surgery. Knee implants that are specifically designed to fit your body, or something as simple as a band-aid; are all manufactured by the aid of a drawing. Engineers, architects, scientists, doctors, physicists, and even composers used drafting to create these products.

All of the world's greatest inventions, thoughts, and improvements started as drawings. The drafter is that invisible person, who in reality, makes dreams come true. Contact the American Design and Drafting Association (ADDA) www.adda.org 731-627-0802 for additional information on how to become a drafter or to join the organization.

The best way to hone your figuring drawing skills is to practice. Even if you are primarily interested in landscape painting, you should be able to depict incidental figures to give a feeling of life to the subject. The figure is a foil to a landscape, and if it is not executed convincingly it can destroy the effect of an otherwise good canvas.

Life drawing should be a part of your training, and, if possible, should be acquired in an art school. However, you can learn to draw the figure well by sketching people at every opportunity. Sketch people in the subway, in the park, at home, at play. Draw at all times.

Observe how people walk, sit, and stand; notice their gestures. You will discover that you can often identify someone you know at a distance by the way his head rests on his shoulders, and you will see the different postures of the old and the young. Make notes on how clothes are draped on a person, and how wrinkles form in a sleeve when the arm is bent, raised, and hanging at the side.

The drawings do not have to be large - from 2 to 6 inches will do. They will probably have to be small if you are trying to capture any action. Indicate the line of action first and then draw the figure around it. Some of your early attempts may resemble scribbling, but get the action.

Obtain a small sketchpad that can fit into your pocket or purse and carry it with you at all times. Fill the pages with sketches, using a pencil, a fountain pen, or the newer felt-tip pen. If you use a pencil, don't use an eraser. You are not out to collect neat pads of figure drawings. If the line is not right redraw a corrected heavier line over it.

The advantage of using a pen is that it leads to a more direct handling. But do not be concerned about technical handling of the pen. Put the lines down as you feel them. Observe how the shape of a suit or a dress is affected by the figure.

In time your pads will contain a collection of both action sketches and studies of form. As these pads are filled you will develop your figure drawing and acquire enough knowledge to place a single figure or a group of figures convincingly in your composition.

While constant sketching will increase your powers of observation and general facility in handling incidental figures, some time should be spent learning at least the rudiments of anatomy. Study bone and muscle structure, so that you acquire knowledge of how it affects the figure. It is not essential to know all of the anatomical designations, but you should be able to identify and know the function of the main bones and muscles. You should know the relative proportions of the male and female figure. Most important is to know the working of the movable masses, that is, the head, the rib cage (chest), and the pelvis.

There is no substitute for drawing the figure from life, but you can get a great deal of help from wooden or plastic manikins, which are for sale at most art shops. They can be studied to advantage by checking with an anatomy book in arranging the various positions.

Drawing and Sketching

There are millions of people in many different countries all over the planet of love to draw. A good percentage of those people are quite talented and can create entire worlds on a single sheet of paper. The most common median used to portray the imaginations of these artists is the pencil, however many do use pens, and charcoal. These tools can be used to draw anything from the smallest of animals to aliens from the 4th dimension. Sadly, it's a pity to learn that almost 99.9% of these wonderful pieces of art are going unnoticed and not generating any revenue. Aware that great art usually takes a great deal of time and mental concentration to create, it confuses me why many are not getting paid for them.

Painting

Nothing draws the eye quite like a beautiful painting. There are so many ways to paint a picture, it would take me around 4 hours to explain them all. Though painting with standard paint is the most common form of painting, the two other types that I feel I am the most knowledgeable about is oil and water coloring. If you simply do a search for any oil or water coloring paintings, you will be blown away at their beauty. Though the well known artists make millions of dollars from each of their paintings, there is no reason why the millions of less established artists cannot make an income online from their paintings.

Photography

The saying goes "A picture is worth a thousands words". It can also be worth a thousand dollars or even more. There are hundreds of well know photographers getting paid untold amounts of money. What about the other hundred of thousands of aspiring photographers. I've personally seen countless photographs that have taken my breath away and I know they weren't taken by some professional photographer. There are tons of everyday photographers taking wonderful and astounding pictures. It's time you get paid for them.

Get Paid To Draw, Paint, And Take Pictures

I bet you're wondering how can you get paid to draw, paint and take pictures. Well it isn't difficult to start earn money from your art, simply look around the Internet. If you're thinking eBay or a similar auction site, I wouldn't depend to much on those sites.
