Paul ~ Nice job on the Easter egg composition, very modern. The inks are set off nicely on the canvas.
Sarah ~ Another lovely animal you painted! Very nice texturing on the lamb & I esp. enjoy your background colors.
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Jen ~ Easter is on everyone's canvas (paper) & your whimsical rendition is creative. Thank you KAREN for enlarging the photo. It seems that Jen's bunny ears look like they are front to back instead of side by side. HIS right ear must be cocked - listening!
Claudia ~ Thanks for remembering to get pic of your eggs before it was too late! Nice!! I like to draw on eggs with ink, just hate the blowing out of the guts part, hee hee!
WELCOME KERTHUNKEH! Always glad to see new people contribute. Nice job on your lamb drawing & hope to see more. And maybe you have a name we can call you by - or a nick name?
Kerthunkeh, welcome to the forum. Your lamb sketch is delightful. I have taken the liberty of turning him around for you so we can see him better.
Okay this is not my sketch but Kerthunkeh's
Jen C & C's always welcome
Jen's bunny ears are like that because old Jen's eyes could not see what was going on in the small picture!! I will agree he was listening!LOL
Looks like I might have enough clay left to make a small bunny!
Claudia, I love your brightly coloured eggs. It is not easy to paint so small on a curved surface, well done. How many did you do?
Claudia Thank you for the comment. Your eggs are great. Do you have holder for the egg while you paint?
C&Cs always welcome
Kerthunkeh welcome to the group. You did a great job on the lamb. As others have mentioned let us know what you would like to be called. I hope you post more works.
Nealey thanks for your comment.
Thank you Turps, for doing this, I am limited on uploading for my photos, as I am using my iPod / iPhone, and I didn't realise that it had turned it sideways. On my IPod, it put the picture the right way up. Next time I will upload it again to my email, download it, and then load it up properly from the university computers. I'm very pleased with the finished sketch. Thank you for your comments! Now I see it on here, the highlighting from using the kneadable eraser hasn't come out quite as well as I'd hoped. That is probably due to the terrible lighting.
Next one will probably be the butterfly, because I love watching them in the Countryside, and where I was from, there are loads. As for a nickname, or what you can call me, simply call me Thunk. Thunk is the shorthand.
C&c are welcome! Love what you do.
Love who you are. Love nature. Love art.
lamb's nose well drawn.
feel free to make constructive c/c...no digital alterations please
Thanks Nealey...been years since I last used those pastel pencils.......for the background I just used all the colours I had drawn the lamb with and used a small sable to slightly smudge them
Good morning my artist friends!
I'm trying to contribute more than I have in last 2 months. This is the paint can still life, drawn quickly with a sepia Prismacolor fine pen. 3" x 4" sketchpad.
I started a WC of this, using only yellow ochre. - not such a giant step from a pen drawing for me!!
This is a 'finished ' sketch of a 1" porcelain Easter Egg which I bought in Russia. It is a pendant but I have never worn it just have it hung on the wall as an objet d'art.
I had to enlarge it because of its size...w/colour and pen.
The first view has applied 3D roses and leaves The second view is painted glazing. The blobs on the side are parts of the leaves which curled round to the other side.
I really haven't done it justice..it is a beautiful tiny little thing but I did want to share it.
I do like this still life...reminds me of frottage........ a much under-rated technique not much used these days..
