That was the week that was!


WIP She saw what others couldn't 
she who must be obeyed
you know this dude
 
two samples inspired by http://denthe.blogspot. com/
 Not really making it under the wire.  The first - a WIP.   Another mermaid and I have to give her eyes more definition - she is looking off into the distance.  My funky bird from last week finished - She who must be obeyed (for those of you who remember Rumpole of the Bailey).  Thought I'd take a break from animals and pretty girls - not my best but I think you can recognize him.  The last 2 were inspired by Denise from http://denthe.blogspot.com/.  I have often done doodle type drawings in which I searched for shapes.  Loved the idea of drawing the critters (in this case) and then drawing shapes over them and coloring (with Copic markers for these drawings).  So this is my week in review so to speak.  Linking with Paint Party Friday.  Eva and Kristin do a fabulous job of "collecting" art each Friday.  Go check this site for yourself and enjoy.  Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed art filled weekend.

  4. You were very productive last week! I love your use of color, especially in "She Who Must Be Obeyed," and you definitely captured Einstein in your portrait of him. Blessings!

  21. Your funky bird is really funky, love it! And your Einstein is captured in quite a few lines.
    The Denise- inspired paintings are wonderful, the lines of the animals so reduced and the colors bright!
    A great creative collection of work!

    Happy PPF
