This was my first real attempt at drawing the male figure.

An update:

I know that I have not posted on here since St. Paddy’s Day. No, I was not off on a drunken adventure. I was moving instead. So there’s my short update :p I already have a few ideas in mind for new drawings, and now that I’m settled in I will post more regularly. Hopefully.

Blog post of 3/13/17 – another art sale & St. Paddy’s day art contest

Yesterday I had another person buy my scribble dachshund drawing on Etsy!

My weiners, errrr, I mean dachshunds seem to be very popular!

Anyways, I just finished reading “Essential Blake” by Stanley Kunitz, a collection of William Blake’s most important poems,  & have started reading “The Portrait of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde.

Check out my art contest on Fine Art America for St. Paddy’s Day. I just had to do one being part Irish and enjoying a drink or two or five

The voting will begin in on Wednesday & anyone can vote!

Hope all my readers are having a wonderful day!

Walking the Dog Drawing

rsz_dachund_walking

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.

Prints are available for purchase 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.)

My super late blog post – had another sale!

I know that it’s been a while since I’ve made a post on this blog – almost a month! I’ve just been so busy & haven’t had the motivation, but now that I’ve got things under control I can finally start ranting once again!

A few weeks ago I had another sale on Etsy of a dachshund drawing! 🙂

I’ve been having fun experimenting with watercolor & have made several pieces that I will upload eventually.

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Hopefully some of you out there have more to do on that day than me :p Here’s a corny joke about it:

Q. What is the difference between a calendar and you?
A. A calendar has a date on Valentine’s day.

hehe

Blue Flowers Drawing/Painting

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.

Doodles of 11/27/16 – With A Blog Post

doodles-11-17-16

I’m not exactly sure why I want to punish my readers with this eye sore, but I just needed an excuse to get away from the holiday madness so here are my doodles of 11/27/16.

There’s four turkeys since I was practicing for my Thanksgiving drawing with the horrible pun that’s so bad that I must repeat it:

Q. “Why do turkeys not eat anything on Thanksgiving”

A. “Because they’re always stuffed!”

There are some really bad scribbles, and a drawing based off the character of Cesare in the German silent horror film from 1920 called “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.” I usually struggle with watching silent films, but I find that the horror films become even more terrifying due to the grimy quality of the equipment of the time.

The woman’s face on the bottom is based off Greta Garbo. I had just watched the film “Ninotchka” (1939) which I enjoyed very much.

Anyways, I was just wondering how high my reader’s stress levels are this holiday season. Christmas is just over two weeks away, and I must admit that I’m not prepared at all! The holiday commercials are really making me panic. Surely I should have already gone into 20k debt already to really get into the Christmas spirit. That’s how it works, right? :p

My Super Late Thanksgiving Post – With a Bad Pun!

Happy belated Thanksgiving. I know that I’m five days late, but considering that Cyber Monday was just yesterday, I’ll just count it as one day :p

Here’s my drawing of a turkey that is the level of a five year old in Kindergarten, and if you think that’s bad enough, just wait, there’s more! I couldn’t resist adding in a horrible pun to go along with it!

So, how was everyone’s Thanksgiving weekend? Did you spend it stuffing yourself with turkey & mashed potatoes? Maybe you had to bite your tongue while listening to relatives you never get along with, or you could be a lucky soul that just stayed home & relaxed. I did all of the above.

Some of you must have been ripping apart others for a discounted flat screen T.V. during Black Friday, which is totally insane but I love you anyways. I’m not really of fan of shopping any time of the year, so I skipped that mess and ordered some things on Cyber Monday. (Thrilling, I know :p)

Anyways, hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving! Gobble, gobble!
