come by, we're around


I drew this, while sitting in the park, with my favourite Micro Graphic1 art pen. It was a little chilly, so my lines are even wigglier than usual. ; )
I'm off for the Holidays!! See you all next year.
Happy Holidays and Happy Painting Everyone!

it's a big world

It's a good thing I love snow, both being in it and painting it... what with me being Canadian and all. : )

let's walk

Well, we've had lots of snow! I love the way snow sits between the tree branches and on bicycle seats. It makes good shapes. Also, I wanted to see if I could get two thirds of the bicycle to 'work' in the foreground. I'm happy with this year's first winter scene.

group photo

I just discovered Holbein's watercolour called Peacock Blue!! Mmm. Very turquoise. It makes lovely greens when mixed with Burnt Umber.

tickled pink

I had forgotten all about this copper pot in my still life cupboard. I found it and was immediately inspired by it's orange colour. So, I grabbed pink flowers and a lemon to keep an analogous colour palette... and got to work.

old friends


Here's my Daily Paintworks Challenge for this week. Love drawing old trucks!! Such wonderful shapes and colours... well actually, they were both blue so I made one red. I also omitted the wire fence and I pulled the shadows into the foreground.

Self-Portrait in Silver

I had a great time painting my reflection in this little silver sugar pot. Also the first time I've painted blackberries!
Happy Creating Everyone.
