Drawing: Hunter and Hunted

Here is something I did for a Christmas present. I've been very busy, but I have a lot of stuff I'm going to upload and blog about!

Drawing 3

Another small drawing, incomplete though!

Painting : Mini Chocolate Portrait

I've been at home without Internet and it's hard for me to type up these posts on my phone. So I haven't been doing that.


But I just got this cute little painting done and I want to share, since I've been doing mostly commissions.

It's going to be a bit longer before I'm connected again and will be able to use a keyboard for this.

Anyone know of a keyboard I can attach to my iPhone?

Painting: Experiment - Acrylic as Watercolors

I don't know about you but when I have a pile of cheap materials my first thought is, "Yay! Experiment time!" I feel much better using five dollar paint than 30 dollar a tube paint.

Do I get the same results with cheap paint as good paint? Good grief, no! But can see how a technique I am not used to will work out without worrying that messing up will break the bank!

I was working with layering acrylics as if they were watercolors when I did this piece. And parts of it I just love, but I'm not upset that the whole piece didn't turn out. In fact, I'm psyched to try again using the faux fauve technique of layering colors!

All without worrying about paint that's 12 dollars a tube!
