Painted Pair

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

I’m happy with this new-fangled green painter’s tape, which is a little less sticky than normal masking tape. But it can be left on, and also comes off without residue. Mind you, it doesn’t make things square for you. You still have to do that yourself.

Cat Violence

By in cats, ruttan's place, sketches

Cats are slime. Little cat this morning woke me up by knocking over books and a fan, as above. I’m sure she thought she was awesome. Below is a rendering of cat violence at its worst, chez Ruttan. The large cat, Mr. Boggedy, thwacks with his eyes closed, which is a little ineffectual. But he’s […]

Pugs, and Skeleton Dude

By in dogs, montreal, sketches, women

I haven’t been posting very much! Sorry. Haven’t been in the mood. I like this drawing of a woman and her pug, however. Something extra. I’ve been seeing these little cutouts of this skeleton dude and his toaster around the neighbourhood. Snapping them with my camera, before they get taken down, because these things don’t […]

Things I Saw

By in horses, men, sketches

Some of them in my mind. I did see a walking guy with a moustache, and some form of skyline. A Hercules plane flew over, but a James Bond jeep didn’t fall out. I saw Kate Beaton ponies on the web. Guess the figures will now be a valuable collectors item. That’s all for now.

Learning Experience

By in sketches

I’m not too fond of this, though it’s big, and was a lot of work. Well, more planning next time, rather than just drawing things to fit a page. Next ones will be better!

More New Stuff, and Renovations, Too.

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour

New stuff. I guess kind of the same, but I like it like that. I’m also enjoying some of the new gadgets on the blog. Don’t want to make it too busy. I tried a couple of new themes, but didn’t like them as much as this one. This one was pretty old, and didn’t […]

Warm and Sunny Day

By in cats, dogs, men, sketches, women

It was such, yesterday when I drew these, and it’s another such today. Happy to draw real animals, etc, from my balcony. Other people are TV and DVD-inspired faces. Not so bad, but I’m waiting for people to start walking by looking less frozen and bundled up.

Another Skater

By in women

I just found this in the book, and thought I’d put it up, part of a late night blog post. That makes me feel less guilty about not posting anything yesterday.

Watercolour Chops

By in men, sketches, watercolour

A lot of technique involved in watercolour. Maybe it’s not something other artists deal with, but I find I have to work and relearn things if I want to do something well that isn’t just totally an accident. Sounds as if I’m down on it, because it never looks as polished to me as my […]
