Nature's Color Scheme

Digital photos of the sunset from Friday night. This is part of the reason we live in New Mexico. The sky is amazing! All of my favorite colors were represented.

IF - Tall

As far as Jane's concerned your earrings can never be too big and your hair can never be too tall.

Illustration Friday - the theme this week is TALL.

Today's Face - 8/16/12

I told you you'd be seeing this again. Well this little one has arrived and here is her card.

I attached the drawing to some cardstock with clear photo corners so it can be removed and put in a scrapbook or framed for the baby's nursery.

Trying a bit different look today. I'm not sure what I think, but it was fun to play with.

IF - Freeze

(Sharpie, Prisma colored pencil, paint)
My daughter says this drawing looks like a strict librarian. I was actually going for sophisticated French woman, but I guess I missed the mark since she does sort of look like she could freeze you in your tracks with her icy glare. :)

Illustration Friday - theme this week is FREEZE

Today's Face - 8/6/12

Notice my new post title. Much less pressure in "Today's Face" than in "A Face a Day". :) Especially since I'm glued to the Olympics every night after work and haven't had much drawing time. I do usually draw while I'm watching TV, but doesn't work with the Olympics. If I look down, I might miss something awesome!

This particular drawing is a request from my darling cousin. She asked me to do a drawing of her that she could use on ETSY as her avatar--her shop is Felt for Less--and other places online.

Here are the photos of her I worked from: (See, darling, right?)
Here are the initial sketches we discussed to get an idea of what she wanted:

And here is the finished drawing:
I used bright, happy colors because she is one of the most fun, cheerful, funny people I know!

We also had the idea to add some of the actual wonderful felt that she sells in her shop. This is that version:

I have several wedding and birthday gifts on my "Art To Do" list but after that, I want to re-do my own avatar similar to this one.

A Face a Day - 08/01/12

(Papermate Flair, Prisma markers, paint)

I have been missing days here and there in my Face a Day Project. I'm wondering if I should call this phase of drawings something else...
