1  Self portrait in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by craftewoman on: August 15, 2019 05:41:23 PM
Staying out of the comfort zone to learn new things. This was a strange perspective.

2  Stones: a drawing in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by craftewoman on: August 09, 2019 06:19:45 PM
I've completed another challenge drawing for Colored Pencil Magazine. This was a lesson in patience and concentration. The smooth stones were relatively easy, but the stones with facets and striations were more difficult to pick out and keep track of.

Drawing is Prismacolor Premier colored pencil with odorless mineral spirits and gel pen on mixed media paper
Finished piece is 5" x 9"

4  Picked up my pencils again in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by craftewoman on: July 05, 2019 11:47:02 AM
I've been going through a sort of renaissance lately, picking up old skills and learning more techniques. These are some of my latest sketchbook pages using Prismacolor colored pencils and learning about using techniques like burnishing, erasing, and using odorless mineral spirits. These are done using Prismacolor premier colored pencils on bristol paper.
I haven't bought any quality paper yet, and there are so many new things to try.
I've bought a couple of  books by Alonya Nickelson that I am learning from.

5  Sister Love My first impressionistic painting in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by craftewoman on: January 27, 2017 09:27:41 PM
Last night the women in my church group got together to try something new. A teacher came and taught them how to paint a tree with cherry blossoms. This project would have been too easy foe, and in the spirit of stretching and getting out of our comfort zones, I thought I'd try something new, for myself.
 I've never painted in the impressionistic style. My art teachers have always told me that I work too tightly, and that I need to loosen up. This project made me feel anxious. I had to walk away from it 3 times to calm my heart.
 Today, when I picked it up again, I felt anxious again. The colors I'd mixed last night were different. The lighting was different. But, I kept at it. I put it down twice and walked away from it, and finally finished after picking up the kids from school.
 The models are my two daughters, 21 months apart, they've been raised like twins. They share everything, and can't imagine being apart for any length of time. I wanted to capture their love for one another, and didn't care too much about the likeness, since they are growing up so fast. But, I managed to get their likenesses as well.  Something I didn't think was possible when working so loosely.

6  Uncle Sam doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by craftewoman on: July 17, 2016 06:21:17 PM
I took a break from doll making for about a year or two. Jumping back in with this fella.


 I still hate making shoes, but I'm going to work on that this Fall while the kids are in school. I also am looking at trying some different patterns for the doll. This one is of my own making. But, I am intrigued by ball jointed dolls. In my Instagram I've discovered some really talented doll makers and I'm hoping to learn from them.

I laid down my painting and drawing for many years. I've been busy raising children. Now that they've gone back to school I have more time to indulge.
Just some things I've done in the last 3 weeks:
Watercolor:

9  Nananananana Batman! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by craftewoman on: May 26, 2014 12:03:16 AM
I love a challenge, and this doll gave plenty to figure out for the first time. The Batman costume is removable. The back is made with a knit fabric and has snaps. Even so, after figuring out most things, I am still not satisfied with my shoe making. Something to work on, I guess.






And one more, as the wealthy playboy, Bruce Wayne.
