Drummer Girl

Filed under: Fantasy,PAINTINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 10:18 am

While looking through my “things to draw” folder I came across the photo I took of an intriguing looking drummer at one of those Renaissance-type festivals I visited last Spring. Even though I think I could have done much better using color pencils I was determined to use acrylics since it had been too long since the last time I picked up a brush.

I rarely use any black when painting but since her outfit was black and red I decided to be bold and give it a try. I’m still not a big fan of black. Oh well.

Darth Fisher

Another drawing request from a grandkid: “How about Darth Vader fishing.” No, I do not know where he gets his ideas. With him sitting beside me this is what I came up with. And by “sitting beside me” I mean squirming, bouncing, leaving, returning, bumping my arm, apologizing, etc. I love every minute of it.

Two-Headed Dragon Prince

Filed under: CARTOONS,Fantasy — Colby @ 12:46 pm

When I ask my grandkids what they would like me to draw I never know what they will come up with. It can be very vague or very specific. This is what I came up with when the request was for a “two-headed dragon prince.” I have no clue where that idea came from.

GrandGirls and GrandBoys

Filed under: CARTOONS,Fantasy — Colby @ 10:32 am

I just spent the weekend with two of my grandkids. One boy, one girl. Each one asked me to draw something for them. Look carefully at each drawing and see if you can tell who asked for what.
