Pole Bean Value study

I did this for the DPW value challenge.  Seems like a really great exercise.  There are broccoli plants in front of the pole beans.  Pretty hard to tell what any of it is really.  Four o'clocks just beyond the beans on the left.

Life Drawing 3

I don't usually stay for the long pose (45 min) but I was having so much fun moving the ink around that the time just flew by.  Can't wait for next Saturday.

Mona gave me some of her ink, Higgins Eterna.  It will bleed when water is added.  I love this effect.

My friend Mona suggested I try pen and ink at the Saturday life drawing sessions at the U of O.  It was really fun to just draw kind of sketchy without worrying about getting every line just right.  This was done with some acrylic ink.

Near Delta Ponds 6 X 8

This was for the rectangle challenge on Daily Paint Works.  I was so happy to get outside painting again.  We got a puppy at the end of July and she has needed/I want to give her a lot of attention.  She's not as beautiful as Marielle was but she is a great little dog, a real cutie and pal.  Her name is Lulu.
