Lyra has been drawing her fantasy houses lately and it got me doodling. Doodling turned to some serious thought, and then I pulled out my rusty skills in perspective. I did this kind of thing as a kid, too, and my dad still brings it up from time to time. Please note: I've continued the tradition of balconies, slides and pools.
And here she is.
I whipped up these little postcard sized drawings for a Yankee Swap I'll be attending tonight. Happy Festivus!
My dead cityscape is complete (at last).
Watercolour, micron pen and copic markers on paper, 6" x 40"
My experience painting live at the RUH Foundation's Masquerade Ball was very interesting - I was surprised to find that I mostly tuned out the guests behind me and went about my business. It was much like painting at home (but with nicer clothes).
This landscape still has some drying to do, but I hope the winner will be pleased.
I've been working on these drawings from a trip to Beaver Creek on and off for the last month or so. Initially, I was just going to do some light washes of colour. Well. I left it like that for about a week before I came back to my desk and threw in some shadows. A week later, I started adding in little details. Today I went all out. Now I'm 'really done for real, this time,' but I've got a feeling I'll find something wrong with it tomorrow.
I picked up another bouquet and made a push to finish this floral still life for my portfolio. I've never done much with pencil crayons, certainly never on a heavier paper like this, and I've also never worked on black, so this was an interesting challenge for me. The end result is something I'm very happy with: I feel like the drawing has a lot of life to it, the flowers are identifiable even though I had fun with the colours, and I like the quirky balance of the layout. It'll make a great addition to my portfolio.
I'm so pleased to have work in a Sask Arts Board show in Regina! Some colour to bring up our spirits in the dead of winter (even if the weather isn't so very awful this year).
Cute little drawing of kiddo, finished. Approximately 8"x10", with art markers, acrylic paint and ink.
