Happy Easter


5 x 7 watercolor pencil on Bristol paper.
Wishing everyone a Happy Easter and a Glorious Spring!


This is a pastel I did, about 18 years ago, of my daughter. 
Just thought I'd throw this in as a bonus. Isn't she sweet?!

Barnyard Family Portrait


This began as a watercolor but I did a lot of digital enhancing. The digital work brightens the colors and I'm able to do a lot of corrections as well.

Magic Mike Caricature


I have so much fun doing caricatures!
My husband politely suggested I stop doing males that look like this.
He suggested Ellen Degeneres. So, looks like I'll attempt her next.

Illustration Friday - CHILDHOOD




This is an update - May 27, 2016
I finished this piece up with oils. No digital work because I wanted a piece that I could frame.


    
 I took a photo of this awesome treehouse many years ago and I've always intended to get it out and add the kids. Here it is! 
    I started it as an 8 x 10 watercolor on clayboard and finished it up in Corel Painter.

Ms. Cow


A fun caricature that I did today of a cow that I drew in my sketchbook yesterday.


Just because I like cows.

Illustration Friday - VILLAGE


     This is the fountain in my wonderful home town of Greenville, Ohio. I've taken a few liberties. For instance, the fountain sits in our traffic circle and isn't usually populated with people. 
      I'm still working on this piece in my studio as a rather large pastel, but time was running out for me to get it posted to IF, so I took a photo, scanned it into the computer, and added the people and some other details. Now when I return to the pastel I'll have some extra reference material.
