Newest weekly sketch assignment at WC


This picture was really hard since the reference photo was really dark and details were hard to make out. It is a cute picture of some kitty's having a moment, by the window in the sun. I did it with mechanical pencils but the scanning process really doesn't lend itself to pencil drawings. I love the challenge of working in different mediums. It doesn't really matter what it is, its all about the creative process.

I have been working on several quilts, one is my newest art quilt for Houston! Hopefully it will make it into that show, one of my many goals. I will post as soon as I finish painting all the fabric and getting it fairly put together. Stay tuned.

This is so beautifully done -- and the scene itself inspires a big "AHHHHHHHH!!!"

Beautiful pencil work! I love the personality of the cat and dog!

PS, what the heck is WC? Sounds interesting.

This is so lovely and soft and quiet and full of cat that I am full of nostaglia. Thanks.

Ooh, this one made me JEALOUS, as in "I wish I had done that." Really excellent.

your sketches are so life-like. I'm still struggling with light and shadow, something you definitely don't have a problem with!
