The idea of a tiny Victorian Christmas village can be either totally charming – a bit unsettling,depending on the scale of the viewer.

Jury duty involves quite a bit of sitting around in absolutely boring rooms. Not so good for scanning images, but great for sitting and inking. Also pretty good for learning American dialects. It was a drug abuse trial. Hours spent hearing ‘payinn’ and ‘peeill’. Translation: ‘pain’ and ‘pill’. This is the second day of twitter’s #illo_advent […]

Another seasonal art challenge (advent illustrations), open to everyone:#illo_advent on Twitter. Have a look – lots of amazing illustrations. 2 days of jury duty gave me a late start, but I have joined here at last!

#InkTober Day 4, although it has a bit more watercolor than ink. Let’s just say that the ink was quite deliberate; especially I am still waiting for some truly waterproof carbon ink for my fountain pens to arrive in Chapel Hill from China. Meanwhile, I am using dip pens and not waterproof ink, applied after […]

This week’s #Colour_Collective challenge is mint green – a difficult color to blend in water colors. I did some mixes using cerulean and hooker’s green and came close. But then I did this quick sketch and decided to dabble in digital colorizing. Not bad for a baby step.

And today we have the bottom third of Rogues Gallery Landscape, Still checking my empty stockings for that wide-format scanner.

It’s a Rogues Gallery of Cats. Who knows what they are really up to! Even though it is June, not December, I am wishing for santa baby to bring me a wide format scanner, as this image is only about 2/3 of the painting. There is a landscape on the bottom that had to be […]
