Wedding Gift

The happy newly weds with their watercolor portrait! 

Drawing Portrait Part 02

Once I was satisfied with the dry look of the colored pencils I started to add water, but very little at a time. After the paper dried I went over it again with the dry watercolor pencils to build up more color or to change it. The last photo is the finished work with it's frame.

Portrait Drawing Part 01

As part of a wedding gift I decided to do a watercolor portrait of my husband's cousin and his fiance. I took photos of the progress from the sketch to the finished piece. I used watercolor pencils because I'm a little rusty with watercolors and this gave me more control in the drawing stages.

Drawing the Figure

Here are a few more drawings from the last figure drawing class I went to. So far they have been fun and relaxing. And the best part is I get to spend some time with friends while drawing and on some nights go out for a drink afterwards.

more Figure Drawing

Figure Drawing

After work I got a chance to do some figure drawing with two models. My friend and I were a little rusty drawing figures for the first time in a long time.

After a hectic but fun day my husband fell asleep for a short nap on a lazy Saturday afternoon. I took this opportunity to draw him since I thought he wouldn't be moving. I was somewhat successful in sketching out his hands since he ended up moving a lot in his sleep.

Klimt Purse

I have always loved the work of Gutav Klimt and have wanted to recreate his work. I found an old photo of a wood painting I did based of Klimt's Judith 1. I have painted this many years ago and hopefully some time soon I will try to do it again with better success.

Thorned Girl WIP

I decided to redraw the Girl with the Thorn hair idea. I'm looking at more reference for hands,face and thorns to get a better idea of how I want to execute my idea. The composition is changing and so is the woman's face. I think once I have the final drawing down I will add some color to it. It will be posted soon.

Girl with thorned hair

This is a work in progress of a girl with a thorned hair prickling her finger. I'm still trying to work on the look of the torns which is her hair and the hands. I find hands are really hard to draw especially since I don't draw them often.
