This is a small 3″ x 4″ 20 page sketchbook that has been kicking around. I put it in my pocket and tried to finish it in a week. I did it! Saturday to Saturday and during the week I lost/misplaced two of the three pens. I started with a fountain pen, orange marker and a grey felt brush pen. You will see that the drawings lose variation as you go.
This is a doodle from my IPhone’s digital sketch book called, ‘Tiny Pink Sketchbook’, made with Paper 53. I doodle anytime I get a minute, most sketches are connected to the part of my brain that I can’t always talk too, until it draws me a picture. Lots of artist have verbalized this in different ways… enjoy.
The witch makes me wonder what makes them frightening? She has no claws, teeth, fur, muscles, or slim which makes her the most interesting monster. Drawn as ugly green women to make us shrink in our theater chair but looking closer she is now my favorite classic monsters depicted reading books. Smart girls make folks run in fear?
‘The gravity of the earth is pulling me down.’, says Swamp Thing.
‘The best place to lay eggs?’ The slimy creature thinks as it watches you skipping rocks. ‘A host to houses my eggs, something warm and tasty.’ Swamp thing thinks as it silently slips into the cold dry air. Looking down at reflections in still eye. She smiles at you after your breath is gone, ‘What a happy nest this will make. I’m such a good mom.’ She smiles as you’re dragged under.
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.
Doodling while eating my noodling. More from the sketchbook, I have had little time to work on paintings but that is because my studio is in a state of neglect becoming the dumping ground for lots of great ideas that need to be worked on.
