I Hear You

Mostly charcoal
A bit of colored pencil
9x12 on some new paper I haven't tried before - wonderful stuff - Canson Drawing paper "Cagrain" heavyweight 111 lb
I nice thing about it is that it is two-sided - fine and medium texture
I use the medium texture for this
I can see the fine texture being "nicely slippery"

Cheers for New Years Eve 2010

A Wager Lost

Pencil on regular old drawing paper
on a 12 x12 but I only drew on two-thirds of the paper
I think she turned out a bit like Megan Fox or even Courtney Cox

And in drawing this, I remembered how much I enjoyed "The Four Musketeers"
and I think it should be remade with Megan Fox in the Raquel Welch role as Constance

Dia de los muertos

Well, if I was smart....
I would have..... remembered the source of this inspiration before I got so carried away I nearly completed it without changing anything....THEN I changed the flowers.  So they CAN'T SUE ME!
 (Dummy. Me, not you.)
 if you want to see the original  - so beautiful - just GOOGLE dia de los muertos and it pops up, because it is so popular.  Something Hawaiian whateverrerrer.
The other thing, dumb, is THAT I DRAW TOO FRECKKING BIG and then I have to try to merge the scans and that never looks good.
Peace and Happiness.
Postscript (I always waned to add that) I goggled it and it wasn't the first thing to pop up. HUH. Oh weel... search it if you want.

How I Could Just

Actual title is "How I could just kill a man".... which I couldn't .
I just named it that because right when I was finishing it up, Rage Against The Machine's version of that came on and I thought..... ooooooo.
So yeah.

Two Scoundrels

Well, it has been a bit since I've last posted! I hadn't thought so. Ah, well.
So, 2 scoundrels. My, er, tribute to two actors; Heath Ledger and Colin Farrell. They would have made a terrific pairing in a period piece, don't you think?

Angelina from a Wanted movie - pencil on Bristol 11 x 14
Well, i have to say I have a lot more respect for artists and such who do technical drawings and renderings! This was tough and I messed up.... on the length of her hand and the crook of her thumb and the length of the gun barrel and.... my list goes on!

With Lime?

oil painting


This is my copy of Mark Boyle's fabulous "Pacific Beach Glow". His is 20 x 24 and I did my copy 9x12. There are marked differences between mine and his, but I am still gonna enjoy it. I just fell in love with his colors - I love nocturnes - anything painted in and of the night. I'll see if i can create a link to his website but I never did see this on it. I originally found (saw) it in the May 2010 issue of American Art Collector and painted it from that.

Jungle cat

1st post

Hmm. what the hell am I doing?
Oh well.
I am
no no no! I am learning
Learning to explore strange new worlds..... out there... (jeez... and I'm not even Capt. Kirk!)
Anywhooo- I am Karen Stitt, aka. ksstitt
I think I picked a... er..., that's not it.... a confused, WRONG NAME
A moniker that looks like a slang for a porn star. Dum. - oh boy - what was I thinking
Oh well... again.
Down to business.
My first post. About ART.
I love ARRrrrrrrT - especially pencil and oils and watercolor and colored pencils and the way they make a person feel. I can look at art and feel differently after viewing it. Even..... digital art. (which makes me semi mad to even admire it - but, well, I do)
And so, without further ado, MYFIRSTPOST!!!
heaven bless you- ks
