Made from magazine clippings and sharpie marker. RAH!

I used acryllics and oil for the first time here today.

Haven't figured out pastels yet.

Next I did this map pencil drawing of some flowers.

Which in turn reminded me of another map pencil flower drawing I did 10 years ago!

Which was in an old sketch book along with this drawing I did at Christmas when I was 11.

After doing the bunny earlier today I decided to draw and cut a stencil and use watercolors to paint the silhouette.


Today I started early. Maybe by the end of the day I'll have more! Last night I pulled out my watercolors and started dabbling for the first time with paints. Last night's endeavors weren't very successful, but today's peacock was my first official completed watercolor. I've got a long way to go, but am happy with the first endeavor! Just for fun, I applied a lithographic effect, which brings out the feathered texture I think.

After the peacock, I did this bunny in marker. It actually looks better online where you can't see the bleeding.

I began this drawing from an advertisement that caught my eye in a magazine. I made the same mistake as before, saving the figure until last. I was pretty happy with the way the window and background were turning out but decided to abandon the drawing after tackling the woman's head and face. I feel like her hair and face break with the line used in the rest of the drawing and I couldn't work out how to correct it. Maybe eventually I'll come back to it or make another attempt.

After my frustration with my first drawing today, I chose this scene from an old collage I had made a couple years ago. I like the simplicity of the composition and the shading, especially on the legs. I had a hard time getting the man's head right--specifically his hair line.

After a considerable and unexpected hiatus from my drawings, here are the latest entries. Both are drawn from existing pieces. The girl is my first attempt at drawing a child's face; she looks a little evil, I'm afraid.

The woman I'm pretty happy with overall, although I saved her face until last, which I usually do not do, and I think it shows. Could be better.
