Still wet behind the ears

My new grandson, Forrest, at about one week old.  I was so anxious to post something new this painting really was a little damp when I put it in the scanner, hence the post title.

This is a warmup for larger things to come.  It is a scene from my part time job as a sensory panelist at a company that manufactures spices and extracts as food additives.

After a long absence filled with fun I decided to have some more fun with watercolor.  This was an image I'd had on my desk for a long time.  It is an Australian Cattle Dog who can get things done with a look.

I have not perfected scanning and merging the two scans but for now this is for your viewing pleasure and imagination.

Ben and Neigh

My 3 year old grand nephew was out to visit last month and met the horses.  His favorite companion is Neigh.  Not sure if his love of Neigh transfers to actual horses but he had a good time with his grandmother grooming and riding.  I had this sweet picture to work from and used my recent workshop skills to paint another human being.

Shirley revisited

I  was just not happy with the painting of Shirley that I did in the workshop so I decided to try again.  I did use what I learned and what I know and a different paper that I like better.  I am much happier with the results.
