It seems I am really bad at blogging. Not that I think the content is bad really. I'm just not consistent. I have not done much in the way of art this year, and I am trying to get back to a regular practice.
In my last post I told of two of my paintings being accepted to a juried art show at Delicato Winery. This is an annual show. Neither painting sold, but I didn't really want them to. I will enter again next year, but submit paintings that I would like to sell.
This coneflower picture is one I have been wanting to paint for a while. They are such pretty flowers. I have had the reference photo for a while. It was painted with a (gasp) set of Prang watercolors. So not what I usually paint with, but for the sketchbook, it's okay. I will be painting this one again, either with Holbein, or Daniel Smith watercolors, to make a comparison. I will post the comparison as it gets done. Bye for now

A little watercolor painting I painted in a sketchbook:
Here's two more for you, though not watercolor.
The cell phone picture and the pear are both painted in AurynInk and Ipad drawing program

This is my second attempt at drawing Bowie. He is a willing model most of the time. He likes to sleep, and that helps me, because he will be still for a fair bit of time. I am really liking this Auryn Ink drawing and painting app.

I have just recently started playing with an Ipad app called Auryn Ink. It simulates painting with watercolor paints. I really was struggling with the process but then got a stylus to use. This made it much easier to draw. I didn't try filling in with solid color, just used thin strokes to show the texture of his fur.
This was the first try at drawing the cat.
