It rained today! We have 6 ft high heaps of snow on each side of our driveway and it rains! Stay at home weather to be sure! And PERFECT for painting or catching up on some EDMs! Watercolours and acrylic inks.

EDM # 142 draw something hot

Hey! Who turned on my sketchbook? (I suspect the toothbrush.) Even though the shadows are more decorative than right, I'm happy with this one. (The colour is actually more intense in the original) Pencil crayons, acrylic ink, pigma micron marker 02 black.

 
 

EDM # 92 draw a paper bag

Applied a layer of charcoal first then used an eraser to create the hilights. Botched the background so covered with acrylic (purple...slim choices to be had) I don't mind the top of the bag, but the bottom looks very flat.

EDM # 39

2008/02/04 Medium failure. Sure, thats what happened. This thing was no longer breathing on its own. First I applied watercolour, then pencil crayon, a injection of acrylic ink, more water colour, and a final black pigma micron 02.......*CLEAR*.......beep beep beep hummmmmm...

You can only do so much, then you have to pull the plug.

EDM # 156 draw your favorite sandwhich

2008/02/03 Just under the wire at 11:55 pm! Confessions: this is not my favorite sandwich. My fave is peanut butter and honey. BUT, I also love healthier alternatives, so this is an open face Greek pita, roast turkey, cheddar cheese, leaf lettueces and mayo...grilled in the ol' George Forman.

EDM # 1 draw a shoe.

You guessed it. I didn't want to contend with laces, at least, not at 1 am.

Last day of January finds me setting up a new blog. Larger and individual versions of these images can be viewed at Flicker (use guest pass link found at top of right hand column.) Unfortunately I'll be losing the comments for these images on the old blog site that fellow artists and members of EDM considerately and generously posted.
