Old Stuff

A fun sketch. In 1973 my husband and I went on a mission trip to Tuxla Mexico. We brought this little toy back for our son who was just 3 at the time. I put yellow and white casein down first, then painted with gouache.

This old building is the Feed Store I painted previously.  This is the other side. This one also had an under-painting of casein.  I dearly love these old buildings. They are our past!

Corners of Home

I am doing the Sketchbook Skool class, and one of the lessons was draw squares on your page, and fill it with little spots in your house. I had so much fun with these. My furniture outgrew the squares though! is hard to draw that small, but so enjoyable. Probably a little cartoony!  I plan on doing some more!

New Sketches

I am taking one of the Sketchbook skool classes, and the lesson was on Cross hatching.  I didn't do too many on this old building but it's mainly for shadow and shapes.  I did it in ink, and took a photo, then I decided to put color on it. I love color!  The Cafe is an old building on the way to Carlsbad NM. I had to turn around and go back for a picture!  For this little painting I did a different technique.  I painted the page with yellow and white casein.  Then I drew with pencil after it dried, and painted it with watercolor and some gouache.
It was a fun piece to do.

Kenyon and Cash

This is a quick sketch of our grandson, Kenyon and his dog Cash. He loves his dog so much! They pretty much stay together.  They are so cute together. (of course)

Carlsbad New Mexico

While I was in New Mexico I did get a couple sketches done.  This is part of a beautiful Catholic Church.
