Today was doodling a little bit.  I doodled with graphite and then also pulled out my watercolor horse to play with it a little bit more.
Hope you like my doodling!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Safar Final

Here is the signed final. Sorry for the bad photo, my scan is still a little washed out so I tried to adjust the contrast to be more accurate. I also cropped it so that you can see how it will look once framed.
Hope you like it!

Now what should I work on? If you want me to do something for you, post a photo and I'll see if I can work from it.
If I do choose your photo/photos, I'll give you the option to buy the finished portrait at a discount.

Safar WIP Update 7

Added just a little more to Safar and I'm calling him done.
I could probably just keep tweaking and that's when I know I just need to stop!
Safar was a joy to capture on paper as well as a challenge.
He's mostly white with chestnut freckles. He's known as a flea-bitten chestnut.
Anyways, I drew him to challenge myself to create the lighter colored animals with graphite.
I've found that both the extreme darks and the whites and light colored animals are the hardest for me to capture accurately.
For a dark colored animal, it's all about the highlights and of course for a light colored, it's all about the shadows.
Hope you like it and thanks for following along while I worked on him.

Approaching the finish line with this beautiful flea-bitten chestnut.

Hope you like it!

Safar WIP Update 5

Have ya missed me? I started a new job last week and until I get my feet under me, my art is taking a backseat. I will work on it when I can. Either after work or on the weekends but it will be a slightly slower process. LOL Not that I'm all that fast to begin with!!
Anyways, I worked more on Safar and he's coming along now!
Hope you like it!

Third watercolor painting

Just for fun I decided to start my third watercolor painting.
It's been an interesting exploration and so far I've only used, Red, Blue, Green, Yellow and Burnt Sienna for my watercolor palette.

The photo reference came from WetCanvas.
Hope you like it so far :-)

Safar WIP Update 4

Sorry I've been MIA!!
When my son and daughter-in-love had their baby three weeks early, I packed up and went there to help out when they called.  Then I got snowed in while I was there because the roads became very dangerous and my return home was delayed by a day.
So, needless to say the art wasn't worked on. 
Mom and baby are both doing wonderful.
Our new granddaughter is healthy, happy and a very good baby. 

Now that I'm back home, here is what I did today :-)

Hope you like it!!
