I'm turning both of these paintings in for my poster assignment in complementary colors. There's about 9 to 10 hours of time spent on each painting. My blending technique improved a lot in this painting. It's so exciting to see this kind or progress!!! This is Steamrolled Em in Red and is done in acrylic.
I'm finding out I love drawing. Again. It's been a long, long time since I really picked up a pencil, and it's coming back with a wow! Not boasting, just loving it! This sketch is for a class assignment - create a poster in complementary colors only, and my inspiration comes from my most favorite steampunk novel by Pauline Baird Jones. Check it out here. In fact, check out anything she's written, and you're guaranteed to have a blast!
Timey wimey, wibbly wobbly?? Is that right? Maybe something close?
So, Illustrator is interesting. I'm having fun with it. Mostly. Well, okay, sometimes. Sometimes I have fun with it. For right now, though, it's a lot of work trying to figure out exactly how to tell it to do what I want it to.
You should see what the other students in my class can do, though! They are amazing! I'm just hoping they don't laugh at my efforts here. Maybe I shouldn't tell anyone about it.
Nah!! It's way too much fun to keep hidden! Enjoy! I'm sure to bury you with stuff I'm learning this semester!

I've been busy. This fall I took the plunge and went back to school for graphic design. My classes are interesting and challenging. This old brain of mine hasn't let me down though (thankfully!), and so just to prove I've still got a pulse, here's a little show an' tell. The picture here is just a watercolor sketch I did. Trying to work out the perspective and get a good feel for the medium. It's all new to me! I was really pleased with how this little sketch turned out. "A Green Cuppa"
