Farmyard


I took a small Journal and began drawing on the pages.  This one is a farmyard. . .Prismacolor pencil.  The first drawing in this journal was the old man.


I had started drawing faces and became side tracked with the bulls.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for a place Artists can go to have their weekly show and tell at Paint Party Friday.   There are so many fun artists, tutorials, and ideas so be sure and visit them.
Blessings,

Baby Duck


Prismacolor pencil, pan pastel and pen.  Baby ducks are going to be everywhere pretty soon.  We must be on the lookout to keep them safe.

I haven't been able to take my walks because of my knee. . .however, it is getting much better.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for a fun site, a wonderful group of artist that not only show their work, but comment, teach, and bring us videos of how they do some of the most creative work I've been privileged to see. Take a lot at our artists at Paint Party Friday.  You will be amazed.

New Bull #2


I used Prismacolor pencils, ink and pastels.

Bulls can be adorable and they can be hard on the riders. They are a strong and individual. More individual than I expected.  They have their own personalities and give a different ride to each of their riders.

8 seconds is a very long time when you atop one of the magnificent creatures.

Paint Party Friday is a wonderful mix of artists, creativity, and teachers.  Be sure and pop on over and take a look. . . and if you are an artist, please join us. We have a great time with our art and each other.

Blessings,
Janet

Girlfriends and their pets


Prismacolor Pencil and .005 ink pen.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for hosting Paint Party Friday each week. So many varied artists and instructions for those of us that haven't heard the latest art products and how to use them.

Of course this is on a ocean front cottage. I love porch swings.
These both are ACEO cards.
