Another pastel picture for Autumn. I could picture this one as a flag, of course! Enjoy!
This picture was just a whimsical piece I needed to add to my portfolio. I love snowmen, and love to draw them at odd angles for interest. This was perfect. For days I had the drawing half done, with the snowman just looking off into blank paper. I couldn’t figure out what to put as the background, so I left the drawing half done and off to the side until this idea came to me. It’s just a cute random Christmas drawing. It was fun to just not be so picky and have fun with this. Like I was back in grade school with my blank manila paper and crayons. Love it!
Hope you like it.
Here is the newest addition to my ever-changing portfolio. This is a picture that was inspired from an old picture taken of my daughter when she was little kissing little sister Kelsey on the head. Every time I looked at the picture, all I could picture was an angel kissing baby Jesus, and I finally drew it. Hope you like it!
Hello, I know it’s been awhile, but I have been busy with my daughter who is graduating on Thursday and it has been prom, practices and such.
I did have this piece a couple of months ago but then stashed it in a drawer. For some reason I didn’t really like it. The other day I found it and thought I could work on it a little more and then was a little more happy with it
It kind of reminds me of a Norman Rockwell type painting. Hope you like it.
Oh yes…and I will also show you my daughter, Kelsey on prom night. Almost made me cry!
Here is a first attempt at drawing a nautical themed picture in pastels. I wanted really to do a beach scene, but I had put this still life together and figured I would try this first…then the beach.
I like it, but it looked like it could use text, so I put the text in “Down By The Sea”. It seems to add something. I would like to go to Photoshop now and take the starfish here and reduce the size and add mini ones in the corners of the frame. That would even add more interest. But anyway, here is my first attempt.
Here’s a new pastel picture. Something a little different than I am used to drawing, but I hope you like it. I like pictures of chefs and cooking, etc., so it felt kind of good to see that I could make one of my own. Next, I would like to try a drawing of loaves of bread and wheat and call it “Daily Bread”. We’ll see….
Here is the latest of my pastel drawings. I got the idea because my daughter has this sudden fascination with the teacup pig. She wants one so badly and I told her that this drawing would probably be the closest she would get to that! But it did make me look them up and see how cute they really are, and so I tried to convey that by placing a spotted one in a small teacup. Hope you like it! I also did another pig in a springtime setting. He was so cute! here they are…
