Window Lamp

I used Prismacolor pencils and Fabrico marker.

The artists from Paint Party Friday are fantastic teachers and painters.  Some artists show their art journals that they do weekly/daily and describe how they are made. It is a fun and educating group of artists that I am so proud to be part of. There teaching ranges from products I've not heard of but can't wait to try, to products you see and use everyday. Their paintings are huge to ACEO size. Check them out.

Little Lulu

Little Lulu was my favorite character growing up. I remember all the cartoons. Remember Tubby? She was so fun/funny. I couldn't wait to draw her. I used pastels, prismacolor pencils and drawing pencils.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for a wonderful Paint Party Friday. Go see all the other many artists who participate. There are a variety and it is always lessons involved.

Pups by the water

It is my destination to have a pups (in my yellow cottage by the water).  She was sketched and prismacolor pencils were used for the coloring. She is a French bulldog. (((Hugs)))

Don't forget to visit all the very talented and varied artist on the Paint Party Friday blog.  Kristin and Eva are amazing artists that host this wonderful party each week. 

I have become enthusiastic and changed my life course (to what it once was - Art) because of this website, these hosts and the wonderful artists that leave comments, advice, tidbits and generous encouragement.  Thank you for all your kindness, time and support.

Owl Sketch

My owl sketch and color pencil is partially unfinished. I was trying to shape all the feathers individually.  The face feathers, wing feathers and the breast feathers are all totally different. The eyes in the picture were different, but not as different as my picture shows. 

I find that when I draw/sketch/paint that the whole picture shows up differently on the computer than  what I see while sketching. I can see the details better and how it could be changed, shaded or highlighted.  What in the world did I do before computers!! I do like that I am better able to see a more exacting picture through the use of the computer.

Join the whole group and see all the other artists at Paint Party Friday.

These two birds were drawn and I used Prismacolor pencils for color.

This week I used the book "Drawing in Color" BIRDS by Lee Hammond, pages 55 and 47.

Please check out the other artists on Paint Party Friday.  This is week 51, year 2.
