Today I put up some more sketches, except the bottom one. The top two I will probably put in my portfolio for school. The Bottom one was just for fun, with sharpies! I love sharpies, but they smell bad after awhile!
I hand in my dinosaur tomorrow, I will post a picture of it when I get the mark on it. Hopefully I will get my boot picture back this week and will put that up too!

This is the other painting I did for the contest. Unfortunatly I didn't win anything, but I still like the paintings I did! The other painting is the blog post titled My Fair Lady {duck}
Personally I like the other one better, so do most people I ask! Let me know which one you like better in the comments!!

Thats my bad pun for the day :) give me a break I was up late! I'll stop now.

I thought you all might be sick of flowers right now, so I'll shake it up a bit! This is a sketch I did in class this past week. It is a very fun technique to use! We used sandpaper and filed alot of pencil lead onto the page, then used a tissue to blur it all to get that neutral grey colour. Then we use our erasers to pull out highlights, and draw in the shadows! It's alot of fun, I love doing it!

I took alot of pictures of sketches so expect to see alot coming up! Along with more flowers! haha you thought you were done ;)

Flora&Fauna II

Here are some more pictures of random flowers and stuff. I love taking pictures of water droplets. Whenever my mom is watering the garden and I am following her around with my camera! I also like to get different angles, like the Queen Anne's Lace. My family is laughing at me because I am always running off and kneeling on the ground to take a picture! I don't care though!
Hopefully I will get some more school projects up soon, I have a few, I just have to upload them still! talk to you then! Leave a comment telling me what your favorite picture is!

Hey! This is the first of a number of updates with pictures of stuff from my backyard or otherwise. So if flowers bore you, might as well just close this window now! Or you could keep looking if you are trying to sleep.
Tomorrow I will get my sketch back from school, so I will try to upload it soon after I get it! See ou then! (well not really see, unless you have a webcam, and we are talking to each other, and...anyway)

This is a painting I did for another homeschool family. It is an oild painting of the photo found
here Painting the water droplets were alot of fun! I really enjoyed doing this painting and hated to give it away! Everything about it was fun to do! Except for trying to mix that rusty colour, that was difficult to find! I will update again soon hopefully!

Camera Junkie II

porcelin horse statue, the sketch I uploaded a few days ago is of this guy

Bridle I won in a drawing contest, now all I need is a horse to wear it!
Another shot of the porcelin horse, with one of my necklaces draped over it...told ya I was bored

Wow two days in a row!
All of these photos are from my room, this is what happens when I am bored and not tired, I walk around in my pajamas and take random photos!
I am kinda surprised that these photos actually uploaded, my computer has been such a slug today, it must be contagious! I have been so unmotivated today! So after dinner I have to get to work on some homework! Have a wonderful long weekend!

Volumetric Sketchiness

Hey there strangers!

Long time no update, blame my professers for giving me homework! I've been really busy with school and personal free time doing absolutley nothing! Also busy painting for an upcoming art contest! So excited! fingers crossed that I win!

The above drawing is a project I did for school. Its called Volumetric drawing, using lines to give the illusion of shape and volume. I got the marks for it today and got a 9.5 out of 10! yay! I was happy! Hopefully I can keep up the good marks. I handed in another project yesterday for that class, I will upload it when I get it back! Hopefully I will update more!
