I have been drawing a lot of horsey scenes lately…horseback riding has been out of the picture for me for the last couple of years, due to growing a family, but one day I will get back to riding. And if not, I can still draw them. Or anything. 😀
I drew and painted this for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) monthly “Draw This” illustration prompt, which was, as the title says, “Admire”.
Hello Friends. Happy New Year. I’ve been a bit busy, and have neglected blogging.
Here are some of the pet portraits I created for people who needed gifts this past holiday season. I create these (and other custom work) all year, so if you need a Valentines gift…or Presidents Day gift (?) or an anytime gift, let me know! You can even order online.
I’ve revamped my website, if you have time, take a gander. Any feedback is appreciated, if you feel so inclined.
I am excited for 2016…it has started off on a pretty great note, with lots of possibilities! I hope you are having a great one so far, too.
William is such a trend-setter; or maybe he’s just trendy…in this one I used more of the paint to create than ink and pencil. I found a great dry-brush technique to play around with on this piece.
This original painting is available (9″x12″ watercolor & gouache on paper, unframed)
Or, find prints here.
I have been working (very slowly) on a project about unicorns, and in my character designs I sketched this little guy. His story may be that his wings are still growing, or that he is much like the unfortunate emu; the wings are all show, no function. I like using a limited palette. I am attempting to simplify my “style” where I can. This piece is a bit of a Photoshop sketch, scanned directly from the sketchbook.
