Ogle Road runner 1

I made this watercolor for my first attempt from the photo taken on Friday. I like the lines and angles and the color contrasts. It's hard to get the trees as they go up into a mass of branches and trunks.
7 x 10 inches

I took this photo last summer just north of Quilcene. I like the funky look of this trailer/cabin.

Soren Raagaard for JKPP

From this photo.
I'm trying to use a combination of warm and cool colors to define the portrait. I think I got a good mix of warm yellows, cool red and cool blue in this one.
I'm using a new camera to photograph my portraits. It has a better lens than my little point-and-shoot, and I think my portraits will look much better.

Life drawing December 9 with Gloria

Our model was Gloria. Only six people came because it snowed about 3 inches last night.
 Kind of muddy, but I like the strong shapes.

I'm pretty happy with this for a two-minute drawing.

Twenty minute drawing.

It's really hard to draw hands and feet. I've got to work on them.
