Blog Post of 10/22/17 – some ideas, weird cat picture, halloween art contest

Since it is about a week before Halloween, ravens & dark forests have been on my mind. I have been sketching out some ideas for work based on these subjects.

Ink sketches of what were supposed to be ravens, but they just ended up looking like generic birds haha.

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.

Walking the Dog Drawing

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 purchaseĀ 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

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.
