"Waseosa Waiting"

2008/02/10 Usually I have something everyday (like an EDM) to post, but I have been working away on this instead. My 2008 goal is to work for 300 or more days this year. So far, I am 38 out of 40! (Yay me!) This water colour and acrylic ink painting was done from a photograph I took a week ago today on Lake Waseosa. 8.5"x11"

Potted 02/06/2008


2008/02/06 I painted 4 of these watercolours today. This is the least disastrous of them all. I did discover some things I very much liked, so that was worth 2 full sheets of Canson 140 lb cold press I'm sure! 10"x15" (half sheet)

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 # 144 draw a square

2008/02/04 Juggling square by Klutz. pencil crayons, acrylic ink, pigma micron 02 black, water colour.

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.

2008/02/03 More work with acrylic inks and water colour. The colour is not spot on here, there should be a hint more ochre/burnt umber. Painted from a photo I took a couple of days ago. 8.5 x 11 inches on Canson Aquarelle 140lb.

EDM # 1 draw a shoe.

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

I wanted to play a bit more with my acrylic inks. Water colour wash on top.
