Illustration Friday - Monster

This is my mom's dog and let's face it - she is FEROCIOUS! Watch out for Mitzi! She'll get you.

Illustration Friday - Tea

I thought I would experiment with tea staining. I started with 4 different teas and made a concentrated brew.

So then I did an old english tile design and painted it with the tea stains. The green tea was most disappointing as it produced just a hint of pigment. Maybe next week the topic will be beets and I can REALLY go to town.

Thanks for looking.

Illustration Friday - Chair

This is my dining room chair.
I don't actually have anything inspiring to write about it.
It's a chair.
I sat in it.

I should have drawn my couch as I spent so much time in it recently watching the BBC's North and South. It was so delicious to watch and Mr. Thornton is a bit of "Ooh, yes please."
"I daren't believe such a woman could care for me."
I'm in love. I could care for you!

Illustration Friday - Cats

As you may have guessed, I'm really not a fan of cats. I'm scared to death of them to be honest. I'm more of a dog person. But I can confirm that no cats were harmed during the making of this painting.

Illustration Friday - E is for...

Well, this is incredibly lame. I couldn't think of anything this week.
That's not true - I thought of a million things and then couldn't seem to get it together enough to actually do a whole illustration with it. Ah well. There's always tomorrow.

I was going through my sketchbook and found this random poppies sketch. I must have been going through a poppy phase at one point. But I liked the sketch and thought I'd put it up here. It might be nice worked into a painting.
