Big clouds blow away to reveal a b-boy on a bicycle, chased by a dog who would’ve been happy with a bone, and a girl who likes robots.
And odd one eyed four legged kids, following friends who come from nowhere.
Today lots of work in my head that needs to come out.
Tonight the house is quiet, dishes clean, and the kids asleep. In that stillness I blow the dust from a large 11″x14″ sketchbook.
goofing around with Windsor Newton watercolor pens. I have been sitting on these things for a while. The foam brush is nice.Really liking the marker ‘brush’ on this watercolor maker. When you are super fresh, show and prove.
Yes, up late and making marks on paper, today I’m rocking a red sharpie, a red dry erase and a red Windsor Newton watercolor maker. Dogs and peaceshocka for pages.
All tiny little thorny. Small micro dogs stitched and fat. Dogs thin tiny little… again and again.
lots of red. Peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, peace….all red then I switch to using a strange black ink brush pen, foam tip style… not my fave, it might be a bit dry.

Update: Three woman paintings, they are working out. I have been finding moments to paint. Clem reminds me while she finds a warm spot on the floor in the studio. (Thanks Steve for the great easel). Three woman paintings, 30″ x 40″, acrylic on canvas. I have been going to a open sketch group and working up painting based on some of the sketches.
Every painting is getting more pumped to get to the next one.
The patterns in this one is making me happy, slowly I go.
This is Clem’s favorite painting.

When you go from One minute poses to three minute… you feel like you could finish every drawing.

Great poses, the negative space made my job very easy.
