Old Cowboy

Old Cowboy

I decided to do a couple of faces.  I started with the old Cowboy. I used art pencils. This picture is drawn in a small art journal.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for a Paint Party Friday where we can share our artworks and creativity with others. Please visit other artists to see all the new paint products and artists video 'how-to.' A wonderful place to learn and be inspired.

Blessings,
Janet

Who Remembers Little Lulu? Happy Valentines Day

PICTURE REPLACED
I forgot her curls.


I decided to be whimsical. . and nostalgic.  Remember Little Lulu and her friend Tubby. . . and her shenanigans. I loved it all.  She has a heart necklace for Valentines Day.  I used Pastels and Pencils.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for a great artists party every Paint Party Friday.  You put on a great party with so many diversified creative artists.  It is a fun community, I learn about the latest art supplies and how and why to use them. . . .what's good, what's not so good and why.

Be sure and visit the artists to find out what is going on in the art world.

Blessings,
Janet

Everyone is talking about that 4-letter word - I painted it.


This is not my Yellow Cottage, I just didn't know what other color to paint it. When my girlfriend said, 'We're only suppose to get 4 more inches' . . . !!!!  I knew she flipped out. I thought, OK that deserves a view.  .  . Here it is.

Pastels, Pan and stick; Prismacolor pencil, Faber-castell Pen, and Acrylics.

Thanks so much Kristin and Eva.   You put on the Best Paint Party Friday ever.  Be sure and take a look at all the great, wonderful and creative PPF Artists.

Blessings,
Janet

I am writing a book about Monsters. These are 3 of the characters in the book. However, I think I need to work on Becca.  Brad is another character yet to be drawn. He's the bully. Big Bad Brad.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for have a great Paint Party Friday for artists who want to show the world their talent, creativity, and just have a comfortable place to be each week. We all just want to teach, learn and share. (((Hugs))) to you both.
