I needed a new birthday wish cake to send out via email on friend’s birthdays! I made up this chocolate raspberry cake middle of the night when I was wanting just this! To hear about classes, follow me on Facebook … Continue reading
I am thankfully finishing up a few journals — and I found a couple of images I’ve not posted! I used to create recipe pages for fun which I used on my foodies blog (which I’ve not been posting too … Continue reading
A study in shadows, quick quick before I had much time to think from our virtual walk on favorite object, one of Bear’s. Leaving a swath of white helped I think! To hear about classes, follow me on Facebook! ☾ … Continue reading
Somehow I have to sketch every day… Nothing special, a doodle in front and in the lecture hall. I felt like I was coming down with something by the end of the day… so a very half-hearted attempt to finish!! … Continue reading
Derived from our happy cup… As I was drinking from it, I was doodling around… barely making a sketch a day with this workload! ☾ Aquabee Super Deluxe Journal, Pitt White pen, and Daniel Smith Watercolors. … Continue reading
Drawing from Jan 9… Just posting all out of order! Ice and snow and we lived on this in the studio…. though not really subzero here! Recipe, rough, approximate, because I rarely use a recipe… 2 big onions, chopped 1 … Continue reading
Okay, he’s not as fiery as some I’ve drawn but he is what he is and he is also a New Moon Rooster as he was made during my sketch blitz yesterday when I took some silence and set my … Continue reading
You might remember the sketch I did of this door and “blue” tiles at a home the other day >> It wasn’t the first time I’d drawn the house. I’m drawn to it: it is close to the studio, the … Continue reading
NOTE: This is about my preferences and why. Other artists will have other preferences, so reading what they like and what they say about this or that journal is good. The only negatives I will write are very bad experiences…. … Continue reading
I have such a love-hate relationship with Kamala. She drives me crazy, never really wanting relationship with me, but definitely trying to drive me crazy by getting into the exact things I want her to leave alone. She pushes baskets … Continue reading
Okay, first off, do NOT sketch in a black watercolor pencil when your first coat will be an Indian Yellow or Quin Gold. Dumb. I tried to wet and wash it off; alas, it did not work well. Also, the … Continue reading
Creatives get blocked. Creatives need play time! It has been a long time since I’ve been involved in a project — I’m not talking about recipes or art challenges but real projects — a couple of years of learning watercolors, … Continue reading
From a photo, middle of the night, watercolor pencil, splashing paint, no ink. Missing the ocean, need to dip my toes in sand and sea soon…. Aquabee Super Deluxe Journal, Caran D’ache watercolor pencil, White Uniball Signo, and Daniel Smith … Continue reading
Been so stressed for so many reasons. Middle of the night drawing. Moons on my mind. Watching Mitchell breath while painting ocean and palms and moon in her fullness, all calming. I almost woke him bringing salt back to bed … Continue reading
I post this with recipe on my foodie blog, but this is a thanks to Tracey and a commentary about taking classes. I am taking an online class by my favorite Aussie, Tracey Fletcher King, called Delicious Paint. A class … Continue reading
Took on foreshortening and portrait (EEEK!) and lions and tigers and bears, oh my! I’m pretty happy with the turnout! The suggestion of Marley’s and Hendrix’s portraits was done with masking fluid over yellow, then splashy splashy! I’m pretty happy … Continue reading
I’m using this “sketch-swim” to loosen up and try new things. I am in love with Reuven Dattner‘s wonderful sketching images. One thing I’ve wanted to try is the use of odd colored or complementary colored inks in a sketch. … Continue reading
