The Willow Tree Painting

A pink willow tree towers over a turtle, snake, bird, rabbit, and various flowers with the night sky overhead.

I first sketched it out with pencil, outlined with pen, and used several layers of colored pencil and watercolor paint. This was inspired by a scene on the river in the great horror film, “Night of the Hunter.”

Walking the Dog Drawing

Standard

I got the idea to do this drawing after seeing the artwork & listening to the soundtrack of one of my favorite films, “Mon Oncle (My Uncle)” by Jacques Tati.

If you haven’t seen it, here’s a link to a funny clip: Kitchen Scene

Anyways, I used a black colored pencil to outline the figures & blue & pink watercolor for color.

It’s available for purchase digital download on my Etsy shop & in print on Fine Art America.

I hope that you don’t think this drawing is too Pawful ^^ (I just couldn’t resist making a bad pun.)

Blue Flowers Drawing/Painting

Standard

I wanted to add something different to my artwork, and decided that the easiest way was to add a different material. I bought a set of pearlescent watercolors, and this is the first result of my efforts with them:

(Prints of this are available for purchase on Fine Art America.)

I used blue colored pencil to draw the flowers, green to draw the stems, and white to blend it all together. I then used red, green, yellow, and black watercolors to fill in the background space.
