with a song in my heart


Another JoJo portrait. I used this same technique at my last portrait drawing class however, the model was a woman and these dark washes didn't flatter her. Perhaps I'll try warmer colours with the ivory black when painting females.

I love watercolour however, at times I miss oil painting because I really like toning the canvas first, which you don't do with watercolour... or do you?! I did today! I put a wash of ivory black and cerulean watercolour down, drew with a micron pen, added more paint and finally, some white gouache. Super happy with this fella!

snowy day sketch

The good thing about a snowstorm is that everyone stays inside drinking tea! So, I had time to enjoy drawing. Unfortunately, the man in the front left before I took the picture. I added a line/frame, a knapsack on the bottom right and of course, my signature. (CLICK IMAGES TO ENLARGE).

cross training


I've decided that painting flowers is just as difficult, if not more so, than painting the human figure... and horses! Flowers are so abstract. I really tried to keep their expressive nature and their individuality without getting heavy handed.

lost in thought

I love watercolour because it's about drawing and, as usual, I've left all my pencil marks that show my process. This is another one from this week's life drawing session.
