Finally got the nerve to call this one done! There are two images associated with my Allen’s Hummingbird. One in direct light and one angled into the light just a bit to show the effects of the Daniel Smith Duo-chrome Saguaro Green. It was the perfect paint to show how these little guys appear in different lighting! 10-DSCN2722 View
#DoodlewashJanuaryPrompt : Novel. A Lion, the King of Cats and a Dire Wolf? Are they 1walking into a bar? And what is that strangely reflective surface they are on? Ice? A Mirror? Wow. What a novel that would make! Maybe I’ll figure out what it is, one of these days. @Hahnemühle_USA @ZebraPen #ZebraAmbassador @zebrateam_usa The Lion, the K…[Read more]
Hello again my friends! I haven’t been posting daily lately, but a prompt of “Chick” was just too cute to pass up! I’ve still been sketching every single day, but my current approach is lots and lots of pencil
So glad that your characters have coalesced (how often do I get to use that word?!), that Phineas is fine, and that Pizza is sure to be on the plate! Life doesn’t get much better. This year, I have GOT to find a king cake to try. I’ve never had one.
Hey Charlie, strange way you have of taking time off — you pop in every five minutes! As for the tree I just read a lot of folk are leaving theirs up for awhile,keep the joy going. I had a dream that showed me a painting on a stand which I am expected to paint. Egad. I don’t know how to paint water. I don’t know how to paint dogs. The divine answer came when I did like Julia Cameron says and seek divine guidance. The answer came: Atmospheric. Oh yes. That sort of takes care of definition after the first telling part of subject. Now I have to make myself get the lead I mean paints out and practise.
Hehe! Every five days, but it seems like five minutes sometimes! lol 😉 Yay for getting the paints out to practice. And yeah… I’m having to sort of figure out the style that works best for me and characters. And that might end up a bit looser style as well.
I found out that base no is one if the oldest dog breeds in the world. Pretty cool fact for the day. I also finally got out the alcohol inks that I purchased ages ago and decided to figure out how to use them. Fun stuff!
Thanks so much, Laura! 😃💕 Yes! Actually the first book is completely written and I have storylines for four more in the series. Weirdly that came easily, but it’s the illustrations that are my biggest challenge. So much to learn about drawing characters! 😉
Thanks so much, Gary! 😃💕 Each time I draw characters, though, they all look a bit different. Not quite the same recognizable character. So I wanted to create that, and then make sure my future characters would work in the same style so there’s more a constant look.
Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 It was a fabulous pizza night, and everything is going great here. Phineas is definitely in those mature years so we no anything can happen moving forward, but he’s doing great right now! And yeah, I guess we reward him for poop as well! lol
#DoodlewashJanuary2021 prompt: Modern. Did you know that ‘Modern Architecture’ is a school of design popular from the beginning of 20th century through World War II. Hardly seems modern now, lol.

Once upon a time there was a small girl full of ambitions.
Art is what resided in her tiny little heart.
Creativity is what she would breathe in
Passion, bursting with skills, was filled to the brim
