Hearts a Plenty
My Geisha girl is yet another surprise. In fact, it wasn't until the picture was completed that I even saw her. She is still one of my very favorites. Wish you could really see the detail.
Image 22 was a fun doodle. I spent a lot of time on the border as well. When doing repetitive shapes, I don't consider it cheating to use a template for consistency and time management. Mostly though, my drawings are freehand.
Images 23 & 24 are not shown here as they are borders.
Bet you can guess how I feel about Image 25!
If you look closely you can see several faces in Image 26. It's fun to sprinkle faces in unexpected places.
Image 27 is just more practice.
Image 28 feels like a different dimension, but a happy one. I used both templates and freehand.
Tangled Ribbon, Image 29, was a challenge I gave
myself to draw a continuous line. It did turn into quite a
challenge, but an enjoyable experience.
Images 30,31 were both practicing pen strokes. Much more interesting than making rote lines across the paper.
All three of these are very early drawings where I was learning not only different pen strokes, but how to relax and allow my hand freedom. That in itself was quite a journey for a control freak.
Used a LOT of ink on the borders of Images 33 & 34.
Julie, Image 35, is a favorite among the ladies. She makes for a very pretty greeting card.
Ralphie, Image 36, is another early work. Can you find the hidden face with his teeth barred?
Image 37 is obviously a butterfly, all freehand.
Dragon Tales ranks up there in the favorites right along with Mr. Penguin. Everyone loves the dragon resting on the cloud. Isn't fantasy fun? I'm so glad we don't have to stick with reality in our artwork.
For some reason, Super Hero came to life for me and I really like this guy. He's always ready to come to the rescue.
Image 40 is another early work. I found drawing those baskets rewarding.
