Depth Tricks

Was drawing earlier and trying to play with depth. Depth isn’t an illusion I’m particularly good at creating or conveying, but I try. At first I drew the whole picture with one pen and made shapes further off smaller ish. Then I grabbed my brush tip pen, and went over all […]

My Week (again)

Since I last posted, last weekish, I had awesome friends over and we had a fun time doing random touristy things we’d never done before, and watching movies and hanging out. Then I got sick…and I’ve been in bed all week this week – mostly sleeping and eating vitamin C and […]

Color and Canvas

I’ve been stuck in bed with a cold all week which landed me in bed all week. Honestly, I’m still *in* bed, just finally coherent enough to write. Last night I managed to muster up enough energy to go to Walmart and grocery shop (because we were out of food) and […]

Artist Trading Cards #3

All black and white, with lots of tiny details. The last few times I did some more extravagant pieces, this time I just stuck to simple (or maybe not so simple) illustrations, and I think I like it better. Some of them are more deep than others…I think that’s what happens […]

Night Oil Painting Part 1

Resource: Empty Easel

I ran across this on my iphone the other day, and honestly, I can’t believe I haven’t found it sooner. Empty Easel is a great artist resource/tip site that has articles on everything from mixing colors to marketing. I couldn’t keep it to myself, I’ve learned so much already and the […]
