fiery redhead

The self-assured and fun model, Marcy, definitely suits her wonderful red hair.

inquire within

Yesterday I listened to the wonderful talented Lisa Daria's radio interview over at Artist's Helping Artists.. She is such a hard working and focused artist. A true inspiration!

Vine and Art Show

I made a few vine videos... Vine is an app which lets you make a 7 second stop motion video. Sound kooky?! Check out my cafe drawing HERE (the gray square) on my facebook page. You don't need to friend or follow me to see it, although you can!

Also, I'm in the Riverdale Group Art Show this weekend. It's always a lovely show with lots of walk in traffic.

Drawn with a charcoal pencil today at my favourite cafe. Also, loving this fall weather!

life drawing

5 minute poses
10 minute poses
15 minute poses
At today's life drawing session I used pencil then played around with Payne's Gray, Cerulean and Yellow on Hot Pressed Paper. It's great to experiment with new colours and still practise my anatomy.

home stretch


I drew this with a charcoal pencil first then painted it with watercolour. The charcoal created a nice rich dark line that I really like and, happily, the charcoal did not smudge or wash out.

that faraway look

I dropped these two white lilies into a glass and set them aside while I arranged some other flowers to be painted. Then, when I turned and looked at them, I realized they were the ones to be painted, just as they were.

Ready to be put into an empty 8"x10" frame... that you probably already own!
