Propagate

Many things propagated from the lonely old room in the lonely old house. Beginnings, and lately, endings, too.

Blue Woman

These are some sketches (the last two literally sketched and painted in a sketchbook). All very rough,  I’m still just messing around with paint. The first two below go together – the second is kind of a close-up detail of the first one and hints at the  story.

The last two are sketches for other ones. Acrylics are making my sketchbooks a lot more interesting. And I learn something every time I touch a brush.

I’m feeling a little more confident with the pen nibs, although I need a better way to clean them.

All this lounging is making me sleepy, soooo – goodnight!

Wilderness

Painting is the  wilderness for me. It’s one of the things on this year’s TODO list. So far, I think I like acrylics more than watercolors.  Here’s a gal out enjoying the wilderness (please scroll down to see the scale I’m working at):

Here she is with a dime, for scale:

And, in the spirit of  “release, release, release,” here are some other things I worked on today.

Raise no more devils than you can lay down.

Better The Devil You Know


I apologize for the low quality of my images. All of this stuff looks better in real life.  I need to find a solution to my scanner, I think. Happy Illustration Friday.
