On Saturday we went to Dr. Sketchy's burlesque drawing again. It was awesome and the model was amazing. But....I haven't had time to scan the drawings yet. And I think I left my small sketchbook there, so I can't scan in any drawings from there either.
But..as a consolation, I give you a lame little watercolor I did a few weeks ago.
The first one is supposed to be the view from my window in Michigan. My brother and I always called the tree outside my window the "middle finger tree" because the pine cone thingies look like they're telling the world to f* off.
The brown triangle on the bottom is the roof of the garage/back porch.
The second painting was an attempt to paint the creek behind the house. It was a favorite place of mine to sit and dream. When I was little I liked to pretend that fairies lived under those willow trees that hung gracefully over the water. However, the only winged creatures fluttering beneath the branches are mosquiteos and gnats.
I HATE mosquitoes. and gnats aren't nice when they get in your nose and mouth. they do that a lot when you're riding your bike down the hill and over the bridge, esp. in the evening.
It's hard to draw a place from memory.
