Default Disc Golf Art

Usually I paint in my studio, but lately I have been bringing a sketchbook, pen, and a small travel watercolor box out with me to paint/sketch out at various locations. Here are a couple disc golf sketches:

That’s great work for being in the field, awesome job!

How many times did you almost get nailed?

Reminds me of Winnie the Pooh. Which isn't a crticism.

I don't think a disc golf basket is an object to focus a sketch on. At least not in an attractive natural setting. I wonder what would happen if you started with a worthy natural scene and made the disc golf element secondary or even camouflaged within it. I have never seen a scene made more beautiful by disc golf equipment, but I have seen beautiful scenes that included disc golf.

None; these holes are both fairly short so I could still see the tees, plus it was during the week so not as many people playing.

Yeah I have heard the Winnie the Pooh thing before about my pen and watercolor stuff.

Mostly agree on that, but at some point it looks like simply a landscape and not a disc golf course. But yeah there has to be a nice balance or a fine line to find.

I could definitely see this as some kind of printed coffee table book. Nice work.

Tut-tut, looks like rain!

It's a rather blustery day...

I'm gettin' sea-sick from seein' too much!

All Pooh, all golfy.

Very nice drawings. Is pen/watercolor your preferred media? Or do you think of it as doodling? Regardless, I think they're lovely.

Thanks! I have preferred acrylics or oils in the past, but lately I have been on a watercolor kick. It seems more portable; easier to pack up and easier to clean up.

Have you ever seen the fantasy golf artwork by Loyal H Chapman? I could definitely see a market for these type of settings for disc golf.

Watercolors, ink, and colored pencil are my favorite combination. I love how quickly I can work with them.

I have been thinking about creating some DG themed images recently. Your work has inspired me to make it happen. Thank you.

That's pretty cool; I'll have to check out more of those.
