Lynn Lane's Photography and Art

I'm a professional photographer/artist living in Houston, Texas and I teach at the Houston Center for Photography. In my photography, I primarily shoot editorial, dance, portrait and documentary based work. I also draw and paint various things. I was recently named one of Houston's Top "100 Creatives" by the Houston Press.

All work on this blog is my original work. I don't repost. I use this blog as kind of a running train of thought about my work. Take a look at my website to see my portfolio: Lynn Lane Photography

First sketch of the day of people sitting around me at the coffee shop.

Work in Progress…I came home tonight after the art fair and have been working on this watercolor portrait that I began painting earlier today. I’ve added more layers and it’s starting to come together but there is still a ton left to do before it actually looks like what it supposed to. That’s the nature of watercolor. It’s a process of very thin washes…oh and his beard has frisket in it. When I remove that it will reveal the paper and then more detail goes into the beard. If you don’t know what frisket is it protects the paper from paint so you can preserve certain areas.

Sketching people around me this morning at breakfast at House of Pies…

Tonight, I finished this watercolor portrait of Jarrod Gibbs that I began last night. This is a pure watercolor on an 11”x14” piece of Fabriano Artistico 140lb cold press watercolor paper.

I finished this watercolor portrait of Josef Helfenstein, Director of the Menil Collection last night. I photographed him recently and decided to paint him as a further exploration. This piece is done on a 16”x20” sheet of Arches 140lb cold press watercolor paper. The character in the background is a Walter Hopps sculpture at the museum. It has red rust running down it.

Just finished this portrait of Tedd Bale that I began last night. This watercolor is 16”x20” on Arches 140lb cold press watercolor paper.

Spending the afternoon in the studio working on a new watercolor portrait.

I finished this watercolor portrait of Chester last night. This is a small 11”x14” watercolor on Fabriano Artistico 140lb cold press watercolor paper.

Just finished this watercolor portrait that I started last night. I’m pretty happy with how it came out. It’s watercolor on Fabriano Artistico 140lb cold press watercolor paper (11”x14”).

Work in Progress: I spent the evening working on this new watercolor study. Still more to do but I’m enjoying the process and the feel of it.

This is a sketch (watercolor with pen and ink) that I did last night of a moment on the block. I’m enjoying experimenting with these studies.
