past the lion

$100 - 8x10"painting
I went out with the Toronto Urban Sketchers last weekend! We met up at the Lillian H. Smith library, which has these awesome statues in front. It was a very tough subject for me and, after two unsuccessful small versions done on site, I finally painted this bigger one at home.

life drawing

I'm still attending life drawing sessions regularly. They are such a great challenge and wonderful way to keep at my drawing practise. Here are a few 2 minute poses drawn with charcoal pencil and then watercolour added.

I liked the curve in this creek so, I painted it. ; ) 
I am super happy with the way this piece turned out. I think the purple and pink and balancing nicely.

Happy National Ferret Day!


"Who me?" - I painted this little one for The Ferret Challenge over at Daily Paintworks, which I entered this week. I figured, being National Ferret Day, it would be a fun subject for people to explore. : )
Thanks to all those who participate. It's a lovely animal to draw and paint.
