Red Cups-Figurative

 Close ups

Graphite on paper...approx 6 1/5x5 
This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Lin was the gracious host this week who provided a bunch of great photos.

 I went with a couple on the beach. Intriguing to me thinking of all they've been through together.

I did another graphite mainly because of time constraints. This is approx. 6.5x5.5. I used colored pencil on the cups for surprise/shock value. Creates interest.

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking and commenting!

Psalm 100:5, "For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations."


  1. You drawing skills are top notch, Dean. This one is also another outstanding piece. Love the red cups just like you thought I/we would!

  2. Good Sunday morning to you Dean!... Your capacity and skill in rendering as a draughtsman is never more evident and beautiful... than when your rich colour "plays second fiddle" in your posts!

    Another "look"... another reason to admire! Bravo!

    Happy Fall... Good Painting and Sketching!
    Warmest regards,

    PS Wonderful.... how you irresistably "snuck in" those red eye grabbers!.. You devil !

  3. Fabulous drawing/sketch, Dean. I love the red cups too!

  4. Excellent graphite painting, Dean! Wonderful shadows and love that touch of color!!!

  5. This is a great drawing! I like the frame lines in the back of the figures. I think it makes them pop out more. The red cups were definitely a nice touch!
