Last year, Debbi made me a gorgeous book for my birthday. It took me until last week to get the guts up to make a mark in it. Now I can't stop.
This is the doodle on which I based my lino cut.
Then I started practicing my drawing techniques from "Right Side" and drew and watercolored this topiary that sits on my mantle.
Then some doodles and faces and other things, including a cat that looks like the kind of creature Katie Kendrick might draw.
These faces are sort of androgynous, but lean toward the masculine to my eye. These were freehand with a reference.
I have always admired Judy Wise's paintings and tried my hand using one of hers as a reference. Nowhere near the level that Judy works, but it was fun to do. On 6x6 canvas.
This last one is a painting over a collage based on one of the sketches above. I really enjoyed this method. The marks were made with a General Pencil, the kind that writes on glass, drawn over acrylic and caran d'ache on a 6x6 canvas.
