Still having fun with Summer Art Camp when I can. The last 3 days, we’ve had some cute bird projects. When I got home last night, I curled up on the couch and drew 2 prismacolor birds. I like the way Diane Culhane showed us to cut them out so they will stand up on their own. I haven’t cut the owl out yet but the other bird is perched on the mantle.
It’s not too late to Win a Monster from yesterday’s post.
Sorry I’ve been neglecting the blog a bit, lately! This is my latest painting, Red Shoes Waiting, 12″x12″ oil on panel. It’s currently in a local show but will be available in June.
And a couple of sketches for Sunday Sketches, too! Hubby and I stopped for coffee amidst the errands yesterday. Well, he had coffee and I had a bottle of water. It doesn’t look like him, (he said to say that) but I didn’t have my glasses with me. That’s my story and I’m sticking with it. The pooch is our ancient Boston Terrier, Sophie. She’s about 200 years old but still chasing lizards and crickets. She just takes very long naps in between.
Just posting a couple of recent sketches. I’ve been sketching with Paper, Paint, Pencils & Pens! and you can see more of my sketches there. Maybe you’d like to join PPP&P, too? We have 2 themes a month. It’s good practice! Go take a look at what everyone is doing for this month’s theme.
I hadn’t come to terms with it being January 2014 yet and here is February. The weather has been a little crazy lately and the cold and dark is making me moody and lethargic. I decided to paint something small and colorful to cheer myself up so on Thursday I started some red tulips. Very colorful and cheerful! But then on Friday I came down with a stomach virus, courtesy of my son, and didn’t get to finish it. Hopefully, today or tomorrow I’ll be up to it.
I started a new sketchbook, made by the hand book co. The paper is good. I can work on both sides with watercolor without show through or buckling. My dark water soluble markers show through a little. No bleed-through but you can see them. It opens flat and stays open. The paper is buff instead of white so I’ll have to get used to that but overall, I like it. That head is kinda creepy but I like the hand.
We are having some freaky cold weather here in Louisiana and I haven’t been able to brave my cold art room to paint. I have been sketching however.
