For our prompt of “Shark” today, the first thing I realized was that I’ve never painted a shark before in my life. So, I had to do a bit of research to study how they looked. And, as usual, I got lost in watching
Fantastic shark Charlie! Yeah for taking art risks! I am in the midst of doing that myself and have been for the last three months. Unsettling and exhilarating at the same time. The good thing it is a way to consume your mind. Enjoy your pizza!
Oh you knew, I’d have to go and listen to Baby Shark didn’t you? And now it’s playing in my head, over and over. I may have to listen to Yellow Submarine or Maxwell’s Silver Hammer (the Beatles will have to pay for recording those songs) just to get rid of Baby Shark. And that won’t be much of an improvement. I’ll probably be dreaming of hammerhead sharks swimming around a yellow submarine all night long! It will be like a horror show where I’m afraid to go to sleep!
Na na, na na. Tee hee, can’t think of that movie without hearing that! I saw it in the theater. Yikes! I have never seen another scarey movie in the theater. I don’t watch scarey movies at all now. Your shark doesn’t look scarey at all. Thank you! 😉
I love your beautiful baby shark, Charlie 😘. People shouldn’t watch horror movies about shark, it’s pushed sharks in dangerous warnings. My buddy told me that sharks in Indonesia looked like being shy when met him suddenly 😉
Okay, so I got totally lost studying images of “Brownies,” our prompt for today, and I’m quite sure I was drooling at certain points during my research. I begged Philippe to make me some for a reference, but he
What’s not to love about a brownie and this is a beauty. When I saw the prompt I decided I needed to make a pan of them a model for my doodle. Only I didn’t have enough cocoa so made blonde brownies with choco chips…except I didn’t have enough choco chips so I added some peanut butter chips. mmmm, mmm like a soft chocolate chip cookie with just a tiny taste of peanut butter. Never did use them as a model but my husband is happy.
Spectacular brownie dessert Charlie! We just shared a serving of coffee gelato which I just had to buy today when I ventured out for groceries. I need a few of the empty containers to store things like gesso in my studio. It is such a sacrifice!😉🙃
Yum! I bought some brownie mix, and it’s sitting in the cupboard waiting for me to get a huge craving. You’re moving me in that direction. Yesterday I was complaining about the gnats. Today I went out, but first I put on some gnat spray I bought last year. It was like a miracle. The gnats stayed away. Not one bite, and I was out for a few hours. Incredible. It is called Bugg. No Deet, and it doesn’t work on mosquitoes, but for gnats, it’s great.
I love this beautiful yummy brownie, Charlie 🥰. Hic I want to eat every delicious desserts you painted and I always get lost in every prompts about food and desserts. Then I just have a little time to sketch ha ha.
For our prompt of “Beachball” today, after making a light sketch of just the ball, I decided to try something a little different. So, I skipped the doodle with my precious fountain pen and used only watercolor for
Yay for doing something a little different! I immediately saw that there was a difference but it took me a moment to realize what it was. I try to do a painting without the pen drawing on a regular basis, but I like drawing so always end up going back to it.
I would have loved a beach today too! It was hot and the annual visit of gnats started yesterday. I hate those things. They bite like crazy and I swell up like a balloon, especially on my face. I have a hat with netting, but I could use a whole net body suit. Unfortunately it’s too hot to wear anything like that, so I don’t stay out too long. The only good thing is they only last a couple of weeks.
Thanks, Cathy! I always paint with a brush, but I usually always start with an ink drawing first. This one had no ink. Yes, these are indeed troubling times. I wish everyone could live in peace and unity. 💕

Nicoline, your work is so fantastic! Having had similar wrist problems that forced me to switch from pen drawing to painting, I fully understand your need to take it slow. Thank you for sharing your artistic journey with us!
I do have some paintings that I did last month and hadn’t posted yet (and since I made this month’s prompt list, it’s possible that some of them coincide with the prompt, lol). So did you know that the pufferfish is a poor swimmer? Most likely why they can ingest water to suddenly increase in size and why they’re so poisonous. Pufferfish – W…[Read more]
