Spring Tulips

These tulips were painted fast and easy. I have been trying out new watercolor paper. This is Twinrocker, and its yummy. Easy to lift, takes the paint quickly and wonderful to work with. Very expensive tho :(

Polka dot flip flops - Another pastel

These flip flops was a quick and easy pastel I did on a brown paper grocery bag. I really have to invest in some pastel paper!!! Pastel is really fun to experiment with, because unlike watercolor you don't have to wait for them to dry!!!!

Little Captain

This is a Watercolor 1\4 sheet Arches 140# paper. The little sweetie is my oldest grandson Michael. He was Captain for the day and took us for a boat ride around Lake Washington. This is almost finished, and has a seal of approval from the Little Captain himself

Cheetah WIP in pastels

For a while now I have been wanting to try Pastels. I finally drew this off and jumped in. The paper is plain old brown paper grocery bag. This cat isn't finished, he needs spots, a chin and whiskers. I will post the finished version. I like using pastels, but need a blender and shader. Next I will try birds.
