Bananas still life (wips and done)

Bananas! These bananas had no idea they would be immortalized in a still life when I picked them up off the stand at Safeway. To be honest, I had no idea either. 😛 They just looked like they’d be fun to paint so I moved them off my kitchen counter and onto my still life […]

April still life #1: little plushies! (wips and done)

New month, new still life practice! This one was all about soft little plush things! Honestly, I think this one’s is a little boring – they all had similarly soft textures (the Mantyke ball on right is kind of fuzzy, but the rest were smooth) and all of them were all about the same size, […]

Someday you’ll see (wips + done)

… that I am such a fragile thing. (Which is a reference to the SD6 song “Everywhere”, which is awesome yet completely un-Googlable/un-YouTubeable for some reason.) This one started as a sketch that probably wouldn’t have made it to completion it if weren’t for a soft spot in my heart for these two and their […]

Susan ~ 30 minute greyscale Photoshop sketch

Starting this month off right with a ~30 min greyscale sketch (or is it a painting by this point?) that started off as a face study and became an excuse to paint a furry stole and some retro style hair. (I named her Susan because I think she looks like a Susan…no other reason 🙂 )
