Bad Riding....Good Art!

All in life must balance itself in some way or other, I tend to find. Yesterday I had the most shocking awful riding lesson in about a year on the lovely Rocky. I have only ridden him twice before and both times found him a wonderful little horse....

Garden Waterfall

This is another submission for Mosaic Medley. I'm not quite as happy with the way this one turned out. There's too much going on in this one and the ink faded more than I'd like when I went over it with the watercolors. Oh well, I had fun with it and...

No Wildebeast

Last week, I decided to paint another tree silhouette scene but with a bit more advanced technique for my colour wash, involving a few clouds instead of clear sky. I did this by adding some grey streaks while the background was still wet. See previou...

TREE PAINTING FOR KIM

Rules for this one include, classic swirls closed up and one size pen.  Sometimes I keep the swirls open and they lead into other details.  I usually use a size 00, 01 and 005 but this time just an 01.  I've started the painting proces...

DOLL PAINTINGS

Some finished "doll" sketches/paintings.  The one in the blue was the best out of TONS!  Little girls are hard to get right for me.  The perspective, the location of the eyes, size of the head and body.  Most of the dolls that did...
