and a few more

Posted Dec 2019

I frequently don't have enough time to post a lot of pictures here. Lol ~ I have about 10,000 photos on my Desktop that I haven't even had time to look at. Yet.

So I grab one from here and one from there when I'm looking through them. Several different Parties. Good times.

Evolved Artist

Posted Dec 2019

Another day, another imperfect picture which I love. I wish I did this, Uhoh I did that..... I drew this Caricature based on a photo of a Girl that I drew differently at an Event.

I feel like this type of Artwork looks correct in a Fine Home. It doesn't look like a 6th-grader filled in eyes/nose/mouth. It is a more evolved Art Statement.

Update just before leaving for drawing Caricatures at tonight's New Year's Eve Event:

Just in case the Guests aren't ready for the evolved Minimalist approach, I figured I should be ready to draw something more detailed. At first, I had a Shapes thing going on:

and then.... Nice! I love this one too!

So many ways to Art

The Versatile Artist

Posted Dec 2019

Whether you warm up and what you have been doing makes all the difference in what you can draw. I'm usually just running between Caricature and Facepainting Events., but I've been doing a lot of me things instead this week. So I felt like a different person when I drew this Caricature.

Good thing I did that ~ because I wanted to warm up for drawing at an Upcoming New Years Eve #Party. The simplest idea tonight ~ to step the Girl's lips ~ kept coming out wrong. It was the first thing I drew, and it took four tries before I realized that I couldn't draw it first thing ~ the way I usually like to make Fun Drawings. I had to rely on a simpler approach ~ drawing the outside of the face first AND drawing a predraw for the lips. This time.

Versatile ~ I have many different ways for approaching my Pictures. Apparently there's no one right way. There's only the way that works best for me in the moment.

I like the way I separated the sleeve from the body

Shading

Posted Dec 2019

I spendt too much time playing aorund in my Studio tonight. I meant to apply some simple shading to this Digital Caricature that I drew ~ based on a photograph of a girl that I peviously drew regular at a Party.

But I didn't. I shaded it the same way I usually do

I just love this Digital Equipment. While I Think I would want to develop a mindless way to do it, I guess I don't really want to do that. I just like to draw and color playfully. Update the next day ~ Oh yes ~ I did apply the new style Shading. I did. I didn't. It's all so subtle.

aaaand.... here I applied it withOut subtle Colors. hmmmmmm :
