3 Baby Ducks Playing

I decided that since I walk down to the canal and feed the ducks every day, I would paint baby ducks. . .hoping to throw a little hope into the wind. I haven't seen baby ducks for awhile.

I used Faber Castill Pitt pens and pastels.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for the Paint Party Friday creativity and Fun. Visit the other artists to see many varieties of supplies and mixed media.

Easy decision to draw them.
Of course, I had to add the Yellow Cottage.
Yes, I used my new stencils "J" because I claim it.
I used Pentel Pencil, Pan Pastel, and Prismacolor pencils.
I thank Eva and Kristin for this great Paint Party Friday opportunity for artists to show they talents, art supplies and lessons for us to learn more new avenues to explore. Be sure to visit all the artists.
Today is my Birthday (Friday) what a neat way to celebrate.

Art Supplies and Fashion designing hats, bags and 1 pair of shoes.

 4 sizes of lettering and masking tape with girls faces on it.
Who knew Office Depot had art supplies!
3 Gals. . . I used 3 faces from the tape.
Under that I drew their hats and bags. Middle hat has flowers and a bird. I used Prismacolor pencil. Only the middle gal decided on a pair of shoes too.

The polka dot book is a date book for 2015 and the Index cards will be used for recipes. I need to get a new box though, the two I have are crammed full of recipes.

Designing bags and hats is a fun thing to do.

Don't forget to see the other artists at Paint Party Friday. Some have videos but all are creative featuring different types of art.

Sketch 14 x 17 Doggie in doghouse.

This is Lady. She lived in her own doghouse just outside the house in the country. She had straw for the winter.  This is my sketch of her under a tree.

I used Charcoal pencil.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for a wonderful place (Paint Party Friday) for us to show our work and receive feedback. I appreciate everyone who visits and leaves a comment. Thank you.

Please visit the other artists and let them know you appreciate their creativity. A lot of them have video's and/or photography with instructions. A good way to learn.
