Back to life drawing. I drew with a 6B pencil and I had a few pools of watercolour at the ready on my palette for these 3 minute gestures.

back on track






A friend of mine at Trafalgar asked me to sit at their Italy Tour promotional booth and be a  "Venetian painter", like on the streets in Italy. It was so fun! A few people came right up and said hello but mostly they just peeked over my shoulder.

Forest Hill Art Show



I participated in the Forest Hill Art Show this weekend! There were about 20 artists and we had a steady stream of guests... and I sold 2 paintings! The masonite panels we use, which have holes for hooks, is a genius idea.

lucky friday



Today I decided to take on the challenge of working from a photograph.  My three goals were, to add an interesting light source, give the background depth and have fun painting plaid.

The bad news is, I was late for life drawing and I had to sit in the back. The good news is, there is a wonderful coatrack at the back!

half sweet hot chocolate


Today I drew on 8"x10" watercolour paper instead of the usual discreet 5"x7" pad. Everyone was so involved with their book, computer or friends, they still didn't notice me drawing them!
