Nature Still Life (2008)

pen and ink drawing of nature still life

The still life was built inside a shoebox using objects found around the campus, and then drawn using micro pens. I didn’t really enjoy working with the pens; they were too hard and precise. The previous project was with charcoal, which I find much more fluid and responsive.

Canton Clock Shop 2 (2010)

drawing of Main Street in Canton, NC by Chris Lockhart with ink, gouache and brush

Across Main Street from our apartment was a tienda Mexicana that I went to frequently, and on the corner was an old clockshop where they sold and repaired clocks and watches. For a perspective assignment in Drawing II at A-B Tech, I decided to draw a series of images of this block. The perspective in this drawing emphasizes the clockshop, though the tienda Mexicana is just down the street. Another drawing focused on the tienda, which the owner now displays on the wall behind the counter. The paper is a cornflower paper, which has blue petals embedded.
