Semi-Daily Art yesterday and today


A Perfect Rose, One More Time
4" x 6"
Blick Artists' and Daniel Smith watercolor
Canson Montval cold press (Not) watercolor block.

Painted from my 2006 sketches of a rose Kitten gave me as a challenge, it was that odd pinkish-yellowish color and perfectly shaped. I did so many sketches that they're as good as a photo reference and have done it in a lot of mediums since then. Will keep continuing the series, may change the color sometimes. That was today's art.

Yesterday I did the September Colored Pencil Challenge from WetCanvas.com, from a reference donated to the RIL by WC member annj... fun reference.


Cheeky Sparrow
5" x 7"
Derwent Drawing Pencils with Bestine and Sansodor washes on the background and fence.
Rising Stonehenge paper (white).

I liked the way the washes smoothed the sky a bit and the fence a lot, I got three different textures in the drawing and they all help to pull it together. No washes on the bird.
