Sketchbook Sunday: Art Show in Progress

#bunny #drawing #illustration late night drawing and I am on a roll!
Last summer, our friend was scheduling the art shows for the Grit, a local favorite restaurant, and I told him I would like to have a show there. So, since then, I had ideas and dreams of how I thought my art show would look on the walls at the Grit.

Friday painting.
Over time, I had different idea and sketches as to what the themes would be, and how large or small I wanted to work. I usually work fairly small, but the walls there are so big, I needed to think about that in relation to the work. Some of my artist friends said I needed to work big, which for a miniaturist, like myself, was a nervous thought.

I also do not usually love making backgrounds, but I tried some here. These are paintings that did not quite fit with my vision, but they were still good to work on and explore possibility.

More drawing. #draw #drawing #illustration #art
A lot of times, I like to work on my art at lunch, just to break from the computer or whatever I was doing that day.

So there you have it, some of my drawings and process from my art show!

Sketchbook Sunday: Portrait Progress

Watercolor with orange. #lunchtimefactory
I have been working on some of the sketches I have been making on portraits from this post and painting them with my watercolor paints. This is the progress so far, and I am really liking it.

Sketchbook Sunday: Some Girls and Portraits

Lunchtime #sketchbook  #illustration #art
When I am at lunch, I like to fill my time with doodles, making lockets, or playing some words with friends. I have been drawing lately, and here are some of my sketches for some art shows I am working on. I like to make different girls and fashion them in cute outfits. They are going different places, like on a walk or to a picnic.

Some #drawing going on.

Folk girls.
These are some of the small drawings these portraits came from.

Some from my sketchbook.

Some animal portraits.
And I also made some small animal portraits that I have been dreaming up. Maybe these can become some watercolor drawings or one inch buttons?
