I created a fun project for Jane Davenport’s blog. I used her face stamp as a template for creating different children characters. It’s a great way to practice facial expressions and hair styles.

I fell in love with some of my #inktober character sketches and decided to add color to a few of them.
For these I used an old sketchbook that had layers of paper ephemera layers with a top coat of gesso. I used a carbon copy sheet and transferred my #inktober sketch onto the gesso page…pressing very lightly. Then I added chalk pastel.
New York Bridal Fashion Week is this weekend and I’m so excited! I’ve been married 18 years, but I still get all dreamy when looking at bridal gowns. Bridal gowns are one of my favorite things to draw, tangle and paint. I always start with a sketch.
I then transfer the sketch to watercolor paper and apply watercolor.
We artist can learn so much from other artists, especially the masters who came before us. I love Impressionism artwork because of the rawness and freeness it represents.
Paul Signac / French / 1863-1935
I love that Signac experimented with various mediums. He creating paintings in oil and watercolor. He made etching and lithographs. But it is his pen-and-ink sketches I love.
For this Imitate the Masters piece I used chalk pastels to recreate Signac’s famous St. Tropez, the Shipyard and the Lighthouse (1893).
