I made the good wife a red velvet cake but she spoiled it by getting off work early before I got it iced.

How does Moses make tea??  Hebrews it.

Gerri, hmmm red velvet cake is evil. She will love it all the more after a long day. Or you can just share it with the rest of us, as we are all drooling!

Geri - So nice to invite us all! Hope there's some cake left! Wonder if it looks like the cake in the Chall. photo this month?

I am posting a couple of sketches from photos I took after a snow storm that left snow on everything. It was an overcast day and everything was black and white. I was trying out the indian ink pens purchased a long time ago and forgot I had. So using the ink with no ability to correct, they are not great but I enjoyed the process. The one with the house (really out of shape) I did because I wanted to try and do negative painting to get the snow that filled the bush in front of it. The other one in case you can't tell has a stream in front.

 

Bonnie   C & C most welcome / appreciated

BONNIE - I agree with Jim, both are so nice. The first draws us in more due to the contrast. I think you could add some very dark or thicker spots or lines at the focal pt. and also minor ones to lead the eye into it. These would make great prints for cards. Well done with that India ink!

Bonnie, I saw this earlier and was frustrated that my husband called to me before I could comment.  It was time to go out.  Of course, I knew there was a stream on the first one.  You did a great job with those ink pens.  I think these are very nice.  The trees are well done.  I like the cluster of buildings among the trees.

The tree on the second one is super.  You did a great job suggesting snow.  Well done.

Bonnie, these are lovely drawings of a cold day with snow everywhere. You paint trees very well. I think you were very brave tackling such a complex subject with ink! You have certainly shown the heavy snow weighing down the bushes and the overcast sky. Good work.

Geri, You are a champ!

Well Worked some more on Small One and really overworked the beater and BG. Having trouble with his fingers too. This is where I am today.

 

His mouth and tongue are not that red! I shrunk the beater a bit as it seemed to overwhelm. Probably should have just used a wooden spoon! I also moved his right shirt up as Howard said his neck was too long and I shrunk his tongue as the same chap said his tongue was too fat. I love engineers!

Hello all

OK, you should be getting over the shock of me posting about.........now. It's been a while. I've enjoyed seeing all new talent that's joined , as well as the old, er I mean , existing regulars and their exceptional talents :-) The comments have been spot on, it's truly a great place to share and learn. I apologize for my lack of posts and comments. I read 95% of all posts on my phone, just never seem to be where I can reply. I'll just say a grand hello to all y'all.

I had a little extra time this evening so I thought I'd work on on of the challenges for the month, the ever popular Kingfisher. I can't recall doing many bird paintings, so this is a little outside my landscape comfort zone. It's oil on 11x14 canvas. This was the best photo with the least glare. Enjoy

.

Dave, always good to see you when you show up and you never fail to impress when you do. Lovely work on the Kingfisher. I like the light and texture you have captured on the stump and his wings. He looks a very perky little fella and the bg is a nice soft mixture of greens and blues. It's always fun to work outside ypur comfort zone as you learn so much. Glad you joined us. Maybe try the chocolate cake!

Jen C & C's always welcome
