I've decided to get back into blogging, as my art will be changing directions.... i should be posting some new stuff soon, and hope to post fairly regularly.

looking forward to getting back in the swing of things!;)

It's been a little minute since i could just sketch. I took advantage of the time i had last night waiting for my haircolor timer to go off by sketching some photos out of a mag i found. I actually really like the looseness of this one....i gotta get better at profile lips...mine suck. but i couldn't be more pleased with the messiness and splatters...this one was a fun spread to do

Dreams & Nightmares Sign-In page

so this is the Sign-In page for my art journal exchange... I've added a bit more detail since I photographed this, so it'll still be a surprise when Gina gets this.  I'll post the rest of the pages after I know she has it, so she'll have a few complete surprises when she opens the book!

Someone's Watching Me

Here's a detail shot of the inside cover page of my Moley that I'm going to be trading with Gina.  I picked the theme Dreams & Nightmares for mine.  I have plans for the 1st few pages, and then I was thinking i might start some backgrounds on a few random pages, so we can collaborate on some pages together.  This is a large watercolor Moley...I almost used a little one, but I think it would be easier for me to work larger to start with.  Once I finish the rest of my starting pages, and Gina gets it in the snail mail, I'll post the rest of the pages, and the full opening cover of this spread.  I'm glad I picked this particular theme....so many ways to illustrate this! Gina and I will be blogging our exchange on confettiisfun.blogspot.com if you'd like to follow along!

i am fascinated by the Lucky Dog carts, and I want to paint hundreds of pictures of them. I don't know why. anyway, did this out in Jackson Square in the French quarter...getting a feel for the watercolors.... i've got a couple ideas for some mixed media pieces with the Lucky Dog cart!

This one got kind of muddy and overworked, but what the hey...it's my sketchbook afterall, and if you can't overwork something in there, where can you? LOL

i like this one.... it's my 1st landscape with watercolors, i think, but i do still like it... i can't wait to learn more and try more techniques to get it even better!

i kind of wish i hadn't used that ink in this one, but, i guess it's alright. i'm still working out landscapes and watercolor...
