A little while ago I got this surprise gift in the mail from my friend Julie Scott. She is ready to step out into the world as an artist. Her company Designworks of the Napa Valley sells original art, prints and cards. She wanted to add Pet portraits to her website. So she took one of my photos of Belle and painted this. I love it. She did an awesome job. Her website isn't up yet or I would share it here. You can find her on Facebook though.
I drew this bird from an image on a file folder. Color was added with Inktense and Graphitint pencils.
This is another exercise from Sketchbook Skool. Drawn from an old photograph. I am loving doing these studies.
