WDE - Last one for 2006

This was drawn from one of the gorgeous photos supplied by Janet at WetCanvas. I couldn't resist this one. Its black pen and watercolour in my sketchbook. I have had a bit of an inspiration problem of late and it was just brilliant to be drawing again! Of course its a bit of an easy subject for a frog lover like me!!

Pelicans - WIP.

This is a work in progress (WIP). It is an oil painting on board, 18 x 25 inches. I used photo I took on holidays in Mallacoota where there are always plenty of pelicans to photograph. It has taken a long time to get this far as I only work on it for around 2 hrs a week. I forgot to remove the stick at the bottom before taking the picture. This is used to rest your hand on as you are painting so you don't rest your hand on where you have just painted (I must learn to use that!) Seeing the painting up here helps me to find bits and pieces that need work!!

Digital Painting - WDEs December.

"Green Tomatoes"
"Mango the mascot"
"Kennedy the cowgirl"

My workshop is such a mess that I have been avoiding getting out my painting and drawing gear. Instead I have been playing around a bit more with digital painting. These are from a few different WDEs over the past month or so.
