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.

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

Things that I saw yesterday…

Fresh sheet of watercolor paper prepared to begin a new piece. This one is going to be intense…

I like the idea that we never really finish a piece of art but that we rather abandon it. This morning I am abandoning this as I feel that it is as complete as I wish it to be. This 16”x20” pen and ink/watercolor painting is of a group of coal miners, some being young boys, working at a mine in southern West Virginia around 1910. This is part of a series that I am currently working on. This shot on my iphone so I need to shoot it properly later.

Here are a few inks that I picked up over the last few weeks. Brands: Noodler’s, J. Herbin, Daniel Smith, Platinum Carbon and Iro Shizuku. I have a pretty large order of Iro Shizukus coming in with some fantastic colors. I thought I would share them so if you are interested in them you could get a little idea as to how they actually look.

Work in Progress….I’m making progress but still an enormous amount left to do on this 16”x20” pen and ink/watercolor piece of a group of miners including a few young boys in front of a coal mine opening in southern West Virginia in the early 1900’s. This part of a series that I’m working on now.

Picked up these three bottles of J. Herbin inks today and honestly love each of them. Cannot wait to use them in some drawings.

This is a pen and ink drawing that I started last night and finished today of a young boy who worked in the coal mines of WV around 1910. He picked and loaded coal and before the age of 14, he spent a year in the hospital after his leg was crushed in a mining accident. This is a 14”x11” drawing on 300lb cold press watercolor paper drawn with my fountain pen.

Picked up a few new inks today and I am in love with Iro Shizuku and J. Herbin inks. Both are so complex and beautiful. I’m particularly blown away the deep rich blue with undertones of red in the Iro Shizuku “tsuki-yo” and the rich golem tones that highlight greenish-brown of the Iro Shizuku “yama-guri”. One that is odd is the Noodler’s “Red Rattler” from their eel line. The color is beautiful but no matter how long it sets, you can still smear it with you finger long after it has dried. Definitely will be tricky to use.

Hitting a stopping point tonight on this drawing. I got a lot done but still more to do. This is based on a young boy who worked in Turkey Knob coal mine in WV around 1910 and was drawn with my fountain pen. I’ve refilled it many times just to get to this point.

Stepping back to look at four of my drawings in progress. This is a series that I’m working on of young kids growing up along Coal River in West Virginia from around 1900 to the 1940’s or so. Much of this deals with the kids whom worked in the coal mines. I’m sure the series will expand beyond this but for now…this is where I am.

Work in Progress…Spending the evening working away on a drawing that I started a few days ago of a young boy who worked in Turkey Knob coal mine in MacDonald, WV around 1910. I still have a ton left to do but I’m making progress and should make a lot more tonight.
