Quick sketches

The international show at the Watercolor Society is coming up and we have to enter by Jan.17.  Did sketches yesterday of Gloria, may be able to use one of these taken to a finished state.  I needed a break from the big project anyway.  


Moving along, we'll see where this goes

Fairy Model

Image
An artist friend of mine, Annette Palmer has a teenage daughter named Faith.  She is the ultimate fairy model.    This is #3, she just charms me.

Josianne

Image
Am always excited to do work from our model Josianne.  She has a real attitude that makes her alot of fun to draw and paint.  This week they have a male model, am thinking thinking thinking about going.  Maybe.

Had a great time this past weekend teaching a figure workshop at the Houston Watercolor Society

A couple more

Image
A couple more samples to show my class tomorrow.  I have a 3 day class at the Watercolor Society.

Quick sketch sessions

Image
I love doing quick sketch work more than anything.  Am lucky to have access to live models.

Did a demonstration for the Houston Art Society today

An Honor

Image
I understand this piece got an honorable mention in the Membership Show at the Watercolor Society. As they had 200 entries it is exciting to be recognized.  Will go to the opening Friday nite.

Got up early

Image
Got up early to draw this model, and managed to lose the other one I did.

First fan dancer sold.

This piece sold at the opening at Holland Street Gallery

Stephanie was the model yesterday

Image
Stephanie is a wonderful model, am going to try to get her for me workshop November 1 at the Watercolor Society.  She also inspired my fan dancers.

Some Recent Drawings

Image
After getting back from Midland, I have been going to model sessions, I miss them so when I don't get the opportunity.  I ordered a small palatte of Charles Reid watercolors (his choices).  Was amazed at how bright they were.  Think I will not be the next Charles Reid.  But finishing them could be fun.








Another one

Image
Another one found its' way to my easel.  I'll finish it.

Irreverent Art, Liz Hill: MY NEW FAVORITE MODEL

MY NEW FAVORITE MODEL

Image
this gal has attitude

Good day

Image
This elf is done..too late to take to Midland.  Shipped off my supplies already.

It was a fun day at the Watercolor Society today, Josianne, one of my very favorite models was at the watercolor session today.  She is so much fun to draw and paint.  I got some great photos to do some work from.  I have way more to do than I do time to do it.  I leave for Midland, Texas to do a workshop and dont' get nack until the 14th.  Here's hoping it is a good time.

Just had to do this one

Image
This is one of those paintings that would not leave me alone until I did it.  It needs some tweaking but almost finished.
Image
And am almost finished, what a long road.  These are 20" x 30"
 on canvas.  They will hang as a group at The Holland Street Gallery the end of September.  Can't decide what combination looks best.



am almost finished with the fan dancers

Image
I look forward to doing this cute little elf when done with them.
I get really bored with a project if it takes too long.  Sign of a lazy artist.

Am aware that you needed to see the model

Image
You would never believe these quick sketches that I did last week.  That is why I put a picture of the model under them!  What fun we had with this model.  Hopefully she comes back soon.    If I ever get my final fan dancer done, I have big plans for some others.
