Y B Blu

I never had one of these but I did have a Karmann Ghia. A convertible. I loved it, little rackety thing. After a big rain, when I hit the breaks it would do a slow "slosh, slosh, slosh" back and forth. A woman in a big truck came a little too fast around a corner and climbed right up over the back of it and crushed it all to pieces. I do mean pieces. It had been held together with bondo and duct tape. Sure was a fun little car.

Bits and Pieces 5

So I may be getting my models out of order, but I believe this girl was week five. She was a pro! George Paliotto, who formerly taught at school and now is an adjunct professor at CLU, tried unsuccessfully to make this model laugh. It was quite funny as she would scrunch up her face for just a moment and then resume her pose with fluidity. And, yes, her hair was several shades of red not found in nature.

Available and, yes, I used the side of my canvas as a test block for colors. It was useful and I think it looks rather mosaic like.
Cheers all and God's peace.

Give Me Strength

Been very busy.

I've got those glittery tears in my eyes right now, mostly because of Terry Stricklands' beautiful Samson and Delilah painting and her words to go along with it.
 I can only hope to paint so beautifully someday. Here's a link

Cheers all and God's peace.

Field Trip

How does it get to be January 10th so fast!!
So about, what?, three years ago or so my husband and I went to Nevada's Valley of Fire. So beautiful! So hot. Wow. But really cool.
So anywhoo, here is Robby the Robot on a field trip.

Cheers all.

Bits & Pieces 3

Life model week 5
I had started this one in landscape and Mark strongly suggested portrait so I changed it and then didn't have as much time as a result. I do like her blue bra.

Bits and Pieces

So I've decided to post my previous classes worth of work over the course of a few days because the new semester is going to start. Some are better than others and I feel these two fall in the not so great category. I had sketched the blond previously and while very sweet, she twitched a lot. (I hope she never reads this, but facially she moved quite a bit.) She was week #3 and I have her facial features down so much better than week #2. (I've already posted week #1 in black and white)

This brunette was week #2 and Mark was rushing me to put color down. I really am a person who wants to get my drawing element correct first beforehand and he did finally understand that quality in me. I really, really did enjoy his class but I'm torn as I want to experience some of the other teachers they have there (before they lose them to their own studios.)

If anybody wants to buy these, give me a shout. They won't be expensive.
