For our prompt of “Blueberries” today, I opted for a few on a bush with a blue jay to keep them company. I adore eating blueberries, so I almost opted for muffins or a pie, but painting too many sweet things can
Wonderful post Charlie! I want to thank you for this space for us to come and DO! This daily practice increases our skills while having fun. It helps me with the other art that I produce as I don’t always get to actually paint daily in my studio as administrative tasks or preparing paintings for exhibiting and selling takes me away from painting. But I always take time each day to DOodle! Thanks Charlie!
Grrrrr…..looks like what happens to my blueberry bushes each year. They peck at them to see if they are rip, if not they move onto the next berry. Dirty dogs! It took mine 10 years to finally produce and produce they do. I wish you lived close to me because I would let you come over and pick any time you wanted. My bushes are 6 feet tall because I was always afraid to prune them in fear I’d have a bad year. I of course can’t reach the upper levels, so you would be a good picker! Well this Spring I am pruning them! I am tired of them and I don’t care if they produce. I have about 10 gallons in the freezer right now.
You are absolutely right, Charlie! Just showing and DOing something everyday will make you a master. What is more, if you just let it happen you’ll develop your own style more easily and you might be surprised at what it turns out to be.
For our prompt of “Desserts” today, I was craving a bit of cake. While Philippe and I were out shopping, we saw a rum cake made by a local bakery that we had once at a restaurant and loved. So I insisted we simply
Any cake! I love cake. I made both my brother and sister’s wedding cakes. I wish I had photos of them. I made buttercream frosting that tasted amazing. My roses were of the same frosting and worthy of eating. Good luck on your quest to get Philippe to make more cake!
I have a definite sweet tooth, but for some reason, cake icing is not a fave of mine so I’m certain the zucchini cake was better without it. Isn’t it funny how sweetness can differ? The glycyrrhizin in licorice is considered 30–50 times the sweetness of sugar, but the two are so different in taste.
Looks yummy!!! Oh, at first I thought this was a unicorn cake which I can say tastes fabulous. but it being a neapolitan ohhhhh I can imagine the chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, ahhhhhhhhhhh sounds like heaven lol!!! And the sweet kitty is so cute!!!!!! 🙂
It looks like a valentine’s cake. I want to see that kitty jump up there and get it! Such a sweet sketch…..ha ha ha no pun intended! Whenever I make cake, I often wonder why I don’t do it more often. Then I am reminded that I don’t have much control when it comes to cake after that first piece.
Well, how nice that you really can have your cake and eat it too! The angle really makes it look bigger and that’s certainly not a bad thing. Cake is the best thing about birthdays nowadays – well, it’s what I get most excited about anyway!
Today, our prompt was “Something Red” in honor of the start of the Chinese New Year, though it could, of course, apply to anything red at all. I love the lanterns that appear this time of year, and love even more
Hey this is just superb, love it. Happy New year, I’m an ox moo and my husband’s a snake lol I have no idea if we are a good match 😮😋😍 my kids are a dog and monkey 🙂 i love these daily inspirations and ideas, I’m trying things I’d never normally do and really enjoying it.
Fabulous Charlie. I just had to do a search to see that I’m a sheep and my husband is a snake. I didn’t look to see if we are compatible. Late night for us. We went to the New Hampshire theater awards tonight as our oldest daughter was nominated for best actress in a community theater musical. She didn’t win but it was an honor to be nominated. I am now enjoying quiet as there was a great deal of screaming as award winners were announced.
You are such a sweet couple (my thoughts, while I was reading this).
Also had to think of the movie ‘The red lantern’. And of a chinese set of brushes and ink etc. in a special box, I once bought for my mother (who passed away 4 y. ago on 23 jan.). So far I didn’t find the box yet. Maybe on a Chinese New Year’s day 🙂
Not a fan of rats, but yours has a touch of whimsy to him to make him acceptable. 😉 I have a friend in Malaysia right now. They went for a wedding and the Chinese New Year. I am excited to see her pictures of the colorful events.
Lovely painting. I’m a snake and my husband is a tiger, I love tigers but I’m not so keen on snakes. According to the zodiac we are not compatible but there again I don’t recognize myself from that description.
Yay! Glad I could make you feel good about being a rat, Sharon! 😃💕 hehe… I’m a pig, so… yeah, I get it! And so true, zodiacs are always fun and uplifting. And yay to the Chinese New Year. It’s another wonderful reason to celebrate!
What’s Black & White & Red All Over-I thought about entering the competition for the 2019 Hahnemühle calendar contest. I never got around to it, but this is a study that did. The theme was ‘Red’ #Doodlewash #Hahnemühle_USA #ZebraPenUS amLL
Thank you, Lisa! Hahnemühle has a calendar contest every year. 2020’s was motion, but I forgot to check and it was too late to paint anything. I’d have to be really excited about it because the minimum size is 16 x 20 inches and I’d have to ship my original from the U.S. to Germany if I got into the finals. That would be really expensive.
World Watercolor Group™ This little pup Muffin is the start of a drawing which I will get some of my students to have a go at, using a ruler as a measure to get the right angles and details, but it will be quite a while yet before this happens. Sorry I haven’t been around to give any comments, but with my right hand is a little painful because…[Read more]
