The first pic is only my own sketch of my beloved poodle Milo.... dressed up as Easter Bunny...
so this post is all about drawing and painting and paper as substrate. Tomorrow I will share my quilt.
Again not on sketchbook revival, but just a lesson I took on youtube, is one of my favorite drawings of the week
I remembered this week how much I like watching paint dry, seeing lines appear on paper, and colors mixing and merging as if they had minds of their own.
These teachers took me on little learning trips this week,
|see how the portraits start in the lower right corner?|
I LOVED this lesson, going in and adding shadow with a new color, little thin additive layers of color, over and over adding in shadows to define the whole. What a new way to look at things
I love her and the soft look. I see where I didn't quite capture her, the eyebrows on mine are straighter making her appear quizzical, and it's all very pale. I like that anyone can be any color and still themselves. I love how her lips came out.
speaking of portraits, I think it was janine Vangool who had us look at an image and see it...
again, I'm not a pro, but I did my best to fill in a body...
Koosje Koene told us to paint blobs of color in the general shape we see
I like learning about shadow and shading, don't forget highlightsd.
I've learned and tried other skills, and have included them in my last two or three posts, and so won't repeat them here, but today I took the lesson from Toni Burt..
I took the lesson in my regular paper skechbook not on good watercolor paper, but I learned about lines and color. Again, color doesn't have to be realistic... I love this and would like to be able to draw buildings better.
The sketchbook revival at Karen Abend's is my favorite workshop every year. It's not over, if you need me I'll likely be trying out my stick pen and ink, or collage with acrylics, or goache. I'll show you what I make in the next few weeks.
tomorrow's post is all about this piece of quilted art... stay tuned to see how drawing and fiber meld
we love the poodle art--- there is something in the eyes of scout and the pup of your other friend what gives them maybe some comfort.....
Your work for Sketchbook Revival is fantastic!
I joined in (late), so I'm going to try a few of the lessons. I've only done one so far. I like seeing yours... helps me see which ones I might jump into.
I know the little fairy house drawings are from something else, but they're really good!
The drawing of the building over watercolors really caught my eye. That one is really special.
OMGosh!!!! I am so impressed with all of your art today. The fairie houses, the faces, the dog and all the rest. Just wonderful. Thank you for sharing it all with FFO and have a lovely day.
Wow!!! You surely gave us some treats.
My favourite are your mushroom house sketches.
Happy you linked to Art For Fun Friday
I need to watch classes. I've enrolled but haven't even started it yet. Shame on me. (Good thing you can watch until April 20th).I love seeing Milo in your art too. Have a great weekend and Happy April LeeAnna. hugs-Erika
So many wonderful works in this...my favorite is the comical Milo Bunny! I love that you did portrait's of your friends' dogs. They are so sweet too. Faces are so hard but you do so well with them!
Such a fabulous artsy week, LeeAnna!!
This is so much fun and I have learned some things just on this one visit. I laughed when I saw your pup with bunny ears. My Izzi wore bunny ears for Easter and I have pictures of her. She is gone now but still here in my heart. Your portraits are awesome and definitely capture the unique expressions of each person. Your pet portraits are adorable and I know your friends will be thrilled with them. Blobs and then suddenly fruit. like I said, I am learning from you today. I especially like the building and tree on the painted background. This is all fun and beautiful, Leeanna ...

You are such a gifted artist. Those are sweet tributes to the poodles too.
