The Element of Chaos in Watercolor

painting gif

I first found Agnes Cecile when I came across a sped up video of her creating a painting from start to finish. The first two minutes show her crafting a detailed, realistic portrait of a lady, but my interest wasn’t piqued until she brought her perfected woman down to the floor and started to splash a halo of watercolors over her. There’s a disorder to Agnes Cecile’s works that makes them exciting. Her portraits have a tendency to look half finished, elaborately detailed in some spots and a drippy mess in others. Her process videos show how much of her art is left up to chance. She paints her vision with absolute confidence, but the element of chaos is always there.

Seeing Through a Doodler's Eyes with POV Sketches

pov sketch

Artists who sketch on location always catch my interest. I love the spontaneous nature of pulling out a pen and paper wherever you are to capture an instance. Paul Heaston makes a habit of drawing every visual detail in his surroundings until his page is full. He sketches his entire field of view, including his own hands and sketchbook. By drawing exactly what he sees, the wide angle perspectives of places around Denver really make me feel like I’m looking at Heaston’s city through his own eyes. If you like his POV style, you will also enjoy one of our entries from last year about The Sketchbook as a Center Point.

Malisa Suchanya’s Black and White Pencil Portraits

graphite portrait

My small obsession this week is Malisa Suchanya's series of graphite portraits. Its cast of lovely ladies is diverse and expressive... plus, there's a handful of familiar faces in there. Suchanya says that she remains a lover for traditional art in a technological age, and her artwork proves it. When I first found her portraits, I had a hard time tearing my eyes away from all the immense graphite detail woven into the perfect textures for skin, hair, clothes, etc. She pays meticulously close attention to fine details, creating a super cool contrast between realistic faces and their more stylized surroundings. She sometimes posts progress photos on her Tumblr, so make sure to check that out too!

Funny, Inventive Doodles of an Investment Banker

matches skeleton bird doodle

Saeed Attari is a 36 year old investment banker from Bahrain and married with two children. Seems like a serious guy, but we know that doodle addicts come from all walks of life. In fact, Attari’s doodle muse is an imaginary pet named iBird! His doodles of iBird’s shenanigans are always interactive, incorporating mundane objects and contextualizing them into something exciting. These doodles look as simple as can be, but the ideas behind them pack a good punchline. Whether it’s food, phones, or his children’s toys, it seems like Attari can’t look at anything around his house without imagining what kind of trouble iBird would get into with it. It takes a good sense of humor to look at ordinary stuff lying around you on a daily basis and find a fresh way to have fun with it! Follow @ibird_art on instagram to keep an eye on iBird’s mischief.

Beauty in the Unfinished

There’s something appealing about seeing the skeleton of a drawing, the bare bones version before it has been perfected. It looks like Marjolein Caljouw knows this, because she often takes photographs of her works in process and shows them side-by-side with the completed illustration. With pencil, ink, and paint, she depicts the female body in all its mystery and sensuality. The soft, organic features are charged with human intimacy that is easily palpable even in the rough sketches.

Ink Flowers Blossom Inside Old Books

antique floral doodle

One of my childhood friends always treated books in an oddly strict way. She would click her tongue and say, “You shouldn’t do that,” when she would see me dog ear pages, scribble notes in the margins, or even use a highlighter on a textbook. Actually, she still does. I think even someone as protective of books as her would admit that Emilie Ely’s floral sketches are a thing of beauty. @helloimemilie’s instagram is a romantic’s dream. Her gentle, intricate doodles find their way onto a myriad of objects, such as tables and leaves, covering them with the artist’s antique charm. My favorite are her old books, whose aged and worn pages flourish anew with elaborate blossoms. With elegant softness, her pen gives life and beauty to something old and tarnished.

Retro Sketchbook

So many eyes! I’m looking into a sketchbook and it is staring right back at me. Its pages are filled with Silvia Asunis’ exciting style that comes across to me as a lovechild of retro cartoons and classic tattoo art. Most of the sketches are only slightly longer than her pen, but every crisp line pops with attitude. The petite sizes and cutesy colors give a lighthearted edge to features that are sometimes downright gruesome. See more of Silvia’s work on her Tumblr! You will wish you also had four extra eyes to drink it all in.
