I've heard of it and seen it on shelves in all good book stores.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

I've never worked with watercolors myself, only oils.

I drew another dragon...drawing dragons is like comfort food. I know I'm a grown up and should bake ziti and roast chickens and sketch nudes, but sometimes I want to eat Pop Tarts and microwave mac and cheese and draw dragons.

Nice attention to detail in regards to the lacrimal ducts in the corner of the dragon's eye. Splendid stuff.

A caricature of Teddy Roosevelt I drew, just for shits and giggles, and a sketch of the Mona Lisa used as a preparatory study for a canvas reproduction I gave to somebody.

Thanks!

Here are some of the oil paintings I've done. I've not painted in over a year now...can't seem to get up the motivation.

My favorite one is the last one, the hummingbird with the inspirational message. Very pretty.

That last one, is that painted on Slate? Sorry if it's not, looking at the painting on my phone. If not, wonderful background to truly bring out the colors of the bird. Just fantastic!

Thank you! I'm not a very experienced painter...I think I've painted about 12 pictures in total, but I really enjoy it, and I found a style of my own that I like.

Thanks! It's from a phase I went through of adding quotes or lines from songs and poems to my drawings and paintings. This one was a gift for my mom; the line is from an Elizabeth Barrett Browning poem and is actually an ode to her dog -- about the unwavering loyalty the dog showed even when people let her down. It is really quite a beautiful poem, and that has always been one of my favorite lines of poetry. My mother has been through a lot in her life, and through it she had two dogs that helped keep her sane and helped her to heal, so the poem was really appropriate for her.

Nope, just plain old canvass! Though I think part of the reason the background color turned out as it did is that I painted this picture over another painting that I didn't like! I was too broke to afford a new canvas, and was painting Christmas presents for all my family because I couldn't afford to buy them.

Tonight I drew my baby, Maxwell. He died a few years ago, and I do miss him.

He looked like a champ. My condolences. That's a great drawing.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

Started the next phase of my Water Color class today, decided that I would try and paint a bird. Found a great picture of a Cardinal...

This is my pencil drawing for reference.


Here, I redid my reference on Watercolor paper. I decided to go with a poured technique for the background. I used almost pastel colors, a light blue and lemony yellow and pale green. Unfortunately the green and yellow look the same when mixed with the blue. So it looks like I will have to go darker.
