Day #16

Here is another one of "my girls". I don't know if I like this one or not. Seems the proportions are off.... hummmmmmmmmmm

She can definately say she 'has her eye on you'. hehehe

Day #15

Day #15's drawing/painting was made for a swap I joined. In this swap we had to make a postcard with at least one owl in it. My partner likes Whimsy and pippi longstocking so I thought I would combine the two and this is what I came up with....

I hope she likes it!

Day #11

I was just sitting here today working on coloring in some of my drawings and decided to doodle this lil gal. She is so pleased to have found just the right thing to serve her family for their Easter dinner., and ohhhh the size was perfect....

Not sure why I am stuck on Bunny's this week but I do like her!

IF ~ Fleeting (also day #10)

This weeks topic for Illustration Friday is Fleeting (adjective
passing swiftly; vanishing quickly)

Just as Mama Duck thought strep throat was fleeting the family....
she came down with a fever.

Oh Spring.. please hurry!

Day #9

Here is a little ATC bunny that I drew and water colored. I was pleased with the way my hands were shaking and how it added the 'fluffy' look to the outline of the bunny. Strange how sometimes my health annoyances can be helpful. hehehee

oops I just saw that I didn't outline the bow around her neck. I better run and do that. :-)

Day #8

I had a challenge this week to draw something I remember from my childhood. I just love the movie Mary Poppins and remember sitting with my four sisters year after year watching it over and over, so I sat and sketched this out...

Day # 7

I got my Grandbaby a "Stick Horse" and was just sitting watching tv with this lil guy in view and decided to draw him so I can keep him here as a memory ....

Love you Logan!

Day #6 *A drawing a Day in April*

I was sitting at the park this weekend, it was a bit chilly but the sun was out and the wind was down. As I sat looking out at the river I doodled in my sketch book and this is what I came up with.....

I am thinking of using this for my Spring Notecard collection. I will be using watercolors on this one (cross your fingers for me).

Day #5 of a drawing a day in April

After sharing a weekend with my sister and nephew and not posting for a bit, I have returned to post my drawings for 'A Drawing a Day in April'.

Here is a pen and ink copy of my 'Mouse n Flute'. I just love Rachelle Anne Miller and saw her drawing of a bunny playing a flute and was inspired to draw the same only using a Mouse (of course) well mine isn't anywhere near as wonderful as her's but here she is...

Of course I will return with a colored copy but whattcha think?

A drawing a day ~ Day #1

I am going to try to add a drawing a day for the whole month of April. These may be assigned for swaps, sketches for EDM (everyday matters) or just doodles I create when I am waiting on the children somewhere.

For the first one I would like to show you a drawing I am working on for an Easter ATC Swap. I completed one for the Easter Chic now this one is for the Easter Bunny...

Now I have just started outlining him with my micropen and I will be adding color tomorrow. I am not going to attempt to water color this one like I did the Chic's, I think I will use color pencil and sharpie's. I will be sure to put the finish product here when he is done.
** EDITED ** As you see I have used color pencil and marker. I am happy with the way he turned out!
