Michelle at Panera

Here is a colored pencil drawing of a friend from work reading at Panera Bread.  She modeled for me and then we had lunch. It was a very nice afternoon.

Mollie: About Eight Weeks Old

This is a little pen sketch I did of Mollie when she was about 8 weeks old.  It is so easy to remember her as a puppy when I look at this. 

Tree Portrait, Washington Irving Park

I did this tree yesterday with water soluble pencils, pen and gouache.  The subject lives in Washinton Irving Park in Bixby, Oklahoma where I often walk, run or ride my bike.

Portrait of Mollie

Recently I tried this portrait of Mollie with  brush pen and some finer pens in Black, Sepia and Sanguine.  I have been drawing her since she was a puppy and she is 12 years old now.  I will search for one of the earlier drawings and put one of those up soon too.

Autumn Street Scene, Eureka Springs

Here is an ink and watercolor pencil drawing done from a photo reference I took in Eureka Springs this fall. The preliminary drawing was done with a drawing stick made out of a walnut twig from the back yard and walnut drawing ink. Then I added the color and finally picked out a few details with sepia and black Pitt pens.  This was taken on the day Mack and I were walking around town with a day pass for the trollie, we had a great time once the sun came out and it warmed up a bit.
