Niece Portrait from Instagram

My niece lives in New York and teaches dance. I always admire her selfies and decided to draw one on my iPad using Paper 53. Some things are not perfect but that is why I practice.

Playing with Paper 53: In the Clinic

Waiting to see Principal
I really prefer to draw on paper, but it is always good to learn new things. I really want to get better using my iPad, Paper 53 and pencil. I did some quick in the clinic portraits (no face detail) then I tried to do some student portraits with facial detail.

In the Clinic and a Painting

Another in the Clinic drawing on my iPad, this student suffers from migraines. I am trying to continue the art everyday theme, so I painted over a drawing I did.

Paper 53: In the Clinic

In the Clinic
 I admire everyone who have beautiful scenes before them to practice drawing or different settings. My setting is my office and when time allows I get to draw a student. This I drew on my iPad with paper 53. The second drawing is just something I did in my giant sketchbook. It's part of my letting go. No rhyme or reason just whatever and it doesn't have to be perfect or something I'm proud of.

CED: Festive - I'm Dreaming

Here is my submission for the first week of December's Creative Everyday. I'm dreaming of a white Christmas. I know a lot of the northerners are tired of snow, but I miss it. I grew up in New Jersey and lived in Colorado for a while, living in the south leaves me dreaming of snow. It makes everything more festive. However not a blizzard, I've been through that before.

My husband has 6 siblings, some their children, 3 of our daughters, plus grand nieces, nephews plus mother-in-law, my house was full. We had great fun and fellowship. Here are the last of my creations.

AEDM: Days are zooming by 22, 23, 24, & 25

Day 22 Old Lady Walking
Click to view larger
The days are going by so fast and I can't seem to keep up. Making art everyday is not an easy task. Art Everyday Month has kept me focused on  attempting something everyday although I don't always keep up with posting it. I going to miss this challenge when its over. Here are my submission: Day 22 Old Lady Walking, I hope to finish this. Day 23 is a copy of a photograph of my oldest daughter when she was little with her freckled face friend. Day 24 Overcome Evil with Good sometimes the evil wants to take over our lives but we have to fight it with good. Don't let the bad things make you so unhappy that you can't find the joy. Day 25 My hope, her eyes are on the hope of God's word. Day 24 and 25 are in my large sketchbook that doesn't require me to be perfect, just let it go.

AEDM: I fell off the wagon Day 19,20, & 21

Day 19
I was doing great keeping up, but life got in the way of creating. My two Blue Girls are still unfinished, although I tried to work on them. My heart wasn't into it. So I did another bird, a really ugly catumpkin idea, and practiced drawing student portraits in my giant sketchbook.

AEDM: Day 16 Cormorant


The Cormorant they have striking blue eyes. Once again I almost didn't have any art for today. Sunday is a day of worship for my family. I also had some volunteer work to do, so art was pushed to the very end.
Once again I did a bird. I drew and colored this bird on my iPad using 53 and the pencil. Then I cleaned it up in Photoshop. I just wasn't in the mood to sit at my desk and draw while football is on.

AEDM: Day 15 Drawn to birds

www.animalspot.net
Don't know why I'm drawn to birds lately. I almost didn't make it for day 14. It has been such a long day. I added the color of the feathers to match the beak.

AEDM: Day 13 On Track

                  Finally on the right day with the Art Everyday Challenge. Thank goodness for slower days. My Immunization Audit is over, so when the Clinic visits slow down I can attempt a drawing. I was just doodling on some scrap paper from school dated 2004, and this is what I ended up with. Which by the way I like and wish it wasn't on scrap paper.
So after I got off work I went and purchased some art paper. I cut it in half so I can take out the scrap paper I keep in my file drawer, next time when I'm just doodling it will be on good paper. I tried to convince myself that, that is what sketchbooks are for, but I don't always want to draw in a sketchbook
I'd rather be in my garden

AEDM: Visiting Blick Art Supply Day 10, 11, and 12

Day 10- Blick Art
If you have never been inside a Blick Art Store, here is my short video inside store. I didn't go down every isle. Enjoy.


Day 11 -My husband I were in the Army
I went to Blick Art Supply. Buying on online is great but I prefer actually seeing and touching items. Although they did not have the Peerless Watercolors I wanted, I had a great time. I purchased some dual brush pens and a Fabriano sketchbook. I made a video also. This Blick is not as big as the first one I visited.  Day 11  Happy Veterans Day - My husband and I both served in the military. Day 12 is my fear realized. I love the drawing, hate how I added color.

AEDM: Day 5 & 6

I am still setting myself free, although time is limited, this is what I did today. The first is a painting in my Giant Sketchbook. I just go with the flow. "When a  Blue cloud is over you and you are praying for it to go away. Remember there is hope in the waiting. Psalm 59:9 Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my defense.
Day 5: Blue trying to take over

Day 6: Self portrait
The second illo is from my iPad and paper 53. I need to practice the things I forgot about using the pencil. It's a portrait of me with my favorite jean jacket on.
