my wrecked scenery and my new project

I've been working for about 3 weeks at an hour or so a day on my scenery of a lake with mountains.
Well...I decided to do a watercolour wash on it and when I wet both sides of the paper and splashed paint on it for it to float into different interesting ink from my pointilism pen ran all over the paper making my whole picture a ink blue shade.
I thought that maybe I could salvage i splashed blue waterpaint where there wasnt much smudged ink but the whole thing still looked like a mess.
so I let it dry and then I crumpled it and tossed it in paper recycling.
then I talked to morris about what I've just done.
and he said I should dig it out, smooth it out and take a picture of it and post it.
Just to say that an artist isn't always bullet proof....we make mistakes too.'s my new project... a raccoon!
so so so cute, I love him,...he's turning out to be a success.
I hope you like him too.
here's a picture of him half done....I'll post a picture of him all finished in a few days.

pointilism is easy

I bought myself some pens at walmart, now I can draw!!!
I started using my pointilism method on my whale, now that my sketch is done. It's easy, when the dots are closer together, it's darker on the paper. When the dots are spread out more parsely, then the shadow is lighter. I added a touch of blue to my whale, you can't see it very well on the picture.

Humpback whale

I'ts snowing again. We are in april and we've getting snowed in! How depressing!

We went to a restaurant/pub for lunch, the kids got to learn to play pool.

I had fish and chips, emma has the chicken quesadilla, chandler had chicken fingers and fries and Jon had the spaghetti and beatballs.

I just started the draw a new piece, it's a humback whale.

I had to stop because I can't find my pointilism pens, I'll have to go buy some.

So this piece is on hold for now.
