|Got a chance to work on this drawing a little more....I think|
I have the hair done..yea! The hands are the next challenge. I may
have to use a ruler on those guitar strings. And I am going to make
them dark instead of light.
|This is a house portrait that I have been working on for awhile. I have|
had to make several changes, and add a few things. I will email her this
photo, and see if she is satisfied. Hope so!

|I haven't had a chance to draw very much; I have had lots of company,|
and have spent most weekends with my daughter and that cute
grandbaby! But I made a little progress on this...still trying to figure out
how to do that hair?
|I received some good news about this crazy piece again...|
it was a finalist in the Animal Category of the Artist's
Magazine Annual Competition this year.
It will not be printed in the magazine, just my name.
But that's something I guess!

|Finished this name canvas, and got it delivered to the customer. She|
was pleased. I hope the mother-to-be likes it too!

|I didn't get much of a chance to work on this drawing...the main reason is in the|
following photos! I am thinking of doing this one a little more loose...a more
unfinished style. I am back home now, and will get more chances to draw.
|I have been down to babysit this little one over the weekend. This was a really|
rainy day, and we just got to look outside...not go outside.
|I got to be creative with her hair!|
|It was fun to make her smile. Little Clara Grace is such a blessing and|
a delight. I enjoyed the weekend, but I remember why God gives them to

|Sally Lightfoot Crab|
|I started a watercolor of one of these crabs. (I don't know|
why it uploaded sideways?!) Anyway, these are the
initial washes...just a light, thin, glaze of color on the white paper.
|Starting to add some of the details and the darks, and building up|
the layers. This is where the illusion of shadows is added (value), and he
starts to take shape. Will keep working on him.

|This is the finished watercolor of the pelican.|
|Here it is with the masking fluid on it. It coats the painted part and allows|
for the wet, loose background to be painted freely. Once it was dry, I wet the
background with clear water.

|This is a sample of what they painted today. They used some|
different waxes, and some gold leaf to get
different effects. It looked like fun!
|Some of their supplies. The class on the 23rd is at 10 am, $75.00, and all supplies|
are included. You can call the gallery if you might be interested.
