Paint Party Friday!

It’s time for Paint Party Friday! I made a little time for art this week. I did these 2 little pears in watercolor. The scanner always leaves an annoying glare on the light parts but it’s better than taking a photo. Cameras hate me, no matter which end of them I’m on, LOL.

I’ve also showing off a little one line dog I did this week that I’m fond of. I’m really enjoying spending some of my art time doing drawings that aren’t realistic like this. It’s a nice break because you can’t do it wrong and sometimes the results have a special charm. This one is colored pencil and marker.

      Your pup is awesome and the pears are just great. I haven’t tried scanning in a painting and that sounds like a great idea. Great pears and pup. Have a wonderful weekend.

    Melisa, your pears are just gorgeous. I like the light spot on them. Even if it’s not really in the painting. It is not a distraction to the beauty of the painting. Doggie is cute too.

    Oh I always love what you bring to the table! LOVE your pears- gorgeous colors and your little dog is FAB! I’m trying to work in that looser style more often lately just to free myself up a little more 😉
    Happy PPF,

    Love the pears. I had a pear phase about two years ago and know how challenging they can be… these look great.

    Both the realistic and the “unrealistic” paintings are fabulous. Your pears look delicious, much better than the ones that are hanging in my tree!!! The dog is adorable, he’s git such a cute expression.

    Hold it! The dog isn’t realistic? I saw one just like it… when was that? Ok, maybe it was a daydream. He is quite adorable, either way. I have to agree your watercolor technique is quite terrific. I have never ventured into that territory. Kinda scary. 😉

    I really like what you’ve done with this doggie! It’s my kind of style too, color pencil and markers is pretty much my main tools for all my artwork!
