Baron Wilson🎨  Artist • Austin • Texas

It’s a pretty damn cool vibe to know you were shopping for art supplies where a certain local artist would pickout her supplies. Although the prices may have changed with the times, Artisans Art Store in Santa Fe is still the place for local artists and even traveling artists like me. Now, I need to go find some poppies. #santafe #santafeartists #georgiaokeeffe #artsupplies #atxartist #texasartist #travelingartist #instaart

Final posts from Thursday’s AVAA figure drawings. This time using graphite for another twenty minute sketch. First time to draw this particular model and she is amazing, although these sketches only bear a slight resemblance to her. It is always humbling for me to attempt ‘portraits’ and I am constantly learning with each attempt. I also find that instead of continuing the same drawing during the longer poses, (with breaks every 20 min.) that I prefer to start over again in order to practice and emphasize a basic fundamental approach to drawing from life.

Throwback Thursday - An early architectural rendering from two decades back depicting a yet to be built project across from the Littlefield Fountain on the UT Campus in Austin. One of my first large scale watercolor renderings of which I only have a small print of it in booklet form- hence the strategically placed stapes! Even though it has not come to fruition as of yet, it was nonetheless a great project to be a part of and getting to work with architects Clovis Heimsath, FAIA and his son Ben. This concept is designed to faithfully reflect the Spanish Mediterranean architectural vocabulary of what are known as the “six pack” portion of Cass Gilbert and Paul Cret’s master plan buildings on the south mall of the University of Texas campus. As Austin and the University continue to grow this proposed version of the University Catholic Center will hopefully become a reality in the future. “University Catholic Center, Austin” 1997. Winsor & Newton watercolor, with graphite, color pencils and ink on d’arches hot pressed paper. 22x30” #tbt #throwbackthursday #architecture #architecturalrendering #rendering #winsorandnewton #archespaper #utaustin #universityoftexas #texas #austin #austinartist #heimsatharchitects #faia #architects #paulcret #cassgilbert #littlefieldfountain #catholic #watercolor #watercolour
