Now for the next batch of my small June paintings.
Bumblebee. Can you see how I attached her wings? There’s no way this fuzzy girl would be able to fly even if she were real!
And then to continue the theme I painted a Dragonfly . I always called them Dragonflies… only when I moved east did I hear them referred to as Darning Needles. ( … and I’ve been told Damselflies are a whole ‘nother thing completely!)
One of my favorite pair of earrings… but please zoom in on the lettering. See how the cobalt teal blue pushed the burnt sienna to the edges… it was pure serendipity. So cool!
Drawing an ellipse with ink is hard enough… negative painting one pushed me far out of my comfort zone.
The squirrels are always burying acorns in my garden…
and I’m always digging them out once they’ve sprouted into tiny oaks trees.
On the left… went to an artist meet-up where I chose to paint this small bouquet on our café table.
Thinking and practicing facial proportions I painted this young woman from my imagination.
Apatosaurus. Long neck… long tail. Ooooh… I love mixing greens!
We’re at the halfway mark of the challenge … much more to come!
