I'm in the middle of a new project: the elephant.

It's about half way done now, I"m guessing another day of working on it and it will be done and posted on this blog, so keep coming back to check on my progress.

Rufous-necked hornbill

I did this bird in a couple of days, all ink pointilism. I just found out how to make my pictures bigger on blogger. Yeah!! I'm learning something new everyday.

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.
