Oldies but Goodies

Since I have slacked at finishing my Iris doodle, I have decided to post some old work that my mom and dad emailed me. These are arranged in the order that I drew/painted them. They are not quite doodles, but they will have to do.

Pencil sketch of a Lion Fish. About the size of a piece of office paper.

The shoes and the landscape are the only pieces that I did not use a photo as a reference, but instead used my very own eyes and some real objects. Sara the beagle won a community student art contest when I was a senior in high school. Most of these my mom has hanging on the walls in her house.

Hopefully, I can get the Irises over with and begin a doodle I’m excited about instead.

    • I’ve been hiding my talent candle under a bushel basket, but then the basket caught fire and now everyone can see my talent! Lol just kidding. Thanks for the complement–I went to school for art.

    • Thanks! I painted the leaves first then painted the background around them. This makes it easier to get brighter colors. I find it is better to add shadows afterward than try to increase the vibrancy of paints because I use very very thin washes of paint.
