In The Studio:Watercolor Sketchbook Painting

Our November challenge is going to be working with #watercolor for the month.  One painting either in our #sketchbook or #watercolor pad. 

So here is Day 1 Mystery Lady which was a drawing I’m doing in ink as well as watercolor.

Since I’m practicing my face drawings this is the perfect project.

Eenjoy the process, the world is waiting for your art……

Inktober2017 Day 4 Underwater

I’m getting the hang of this, we are on day 4 which is Underwater.  Sometimes the day to day issues can make you feel you are Underwater but always know things that you see are subject to change.

First Box Finished

So I finished my first box. It as a challenge with the eyes and nose.  

Gonna have to get some very detailed brushes for this project. 

The only thing left is to varnish to add shine.  So what do you think?

Fruit Series-Cont

Still working on the Fruit Series,  so here we are with “Spatter of
Grapes”.  This is 9x 12 Oil on Canvas.  We are using samples of oil paints we received from Winsor and Newton.  The paint is the riches purple they could have created in my opinion. Then I took the brush and just splattered the paint for the background.

A Day With Sheep

Loving the day spent with a lot of sheep at the Sheep Shearing Event.  Learned a lot about the process of shearing, washing the wool, drying it out, dyeing it  and spinning the wool.  We made a friend of one of the sheep who kept coming back to where we were every time he went away to join the others.  The animal kingdom is really amazing.

Here are the sheep after they have been sheared of their wool, it was about 80 degrees today so I know they feel so much better.  These would come right up to you so you could pet and feed them.  As you can see they were not camera-shy at all.

Collage, Oils and Pastels = A New Creation of Art

I started playing with some of my old pieces by blending them with some new software I have.  I remember doing this once before with my watercolors where I took some watercolor paintings and reworked them in Illustrator which made some beautiful digital art.

The top one is a Collage 18 X 24 , I used pastels, cut out some pictures from magazines and then scanned this into my software to make this beautiful new piece of Man’s Confusion.

The bottom piece is a piece I had done for the Small Art Series Gallery, The Bell Peppers are  8 X 10  Oil on Canvas, scanned into the computer to make this collage type Digital Art piece.
I really like the way they both turned out and it goes to show you can re-create any piece of art making it tell a different story.

Let me know what you think about these two creations……..be sure to follow us, like our page and leave comments (we really do read them)
