If one look hard enough, there's hints of green from the buds on the tree. Looks like it's time to switch over to a springy palette!

From Easter bouquet to New Design

This started as just a sketch from my Easter Bouquet. I haven't painted a teddy bear lately. Just by adding this little bear, the sketch is turning into an illustration.

I pull some butterfly & hummingbird from my archive, just to add some movement. These sweet elements are pretty enough for a birthday greeting, get well, or just to say hello.

This started out as a quick sketch. Sometimes, a drawing can just suck me in. 

Tools of the trade: I start with a general shape of the horse; tissue to rub in the graphite; kneaded eraser takes out the white & just perfect for highlights.

Then it's back & forth with 8B graphite to define the features & shadows!
