Week 25 Animal Art Series: Moths

In order to continue my mission to draw all the time and fill up more sketchbooks in 2016, I’m working on a new weekly theme to do daily drawings, while experimenting with watercolor. At the end of each week, it’s nice to have lots of new drawings and a full page illustration.

I finished my sketchbook page for week 25 in my animal art series with a collection of Moths.

Week 24 Animal Art Series: Neon Spiders

Since I already experimented with my neon gouache paint on my insects study, I thought it would be good to try it again on another illustration to make the subject matter more fun and less scary.

Week 13 Sketchbook Page: Coral Reef

In order to continue my mission to draw all the time and fill up more sketchbooks in 2016, I’m working on a new weekly theme to do daily drawings, while experimenting with watercolor. At the end of each week, it’s nice to have lots of new drawings and a full page illustration.

It’s been great fun been trying to draw all sorts of animals, so last week’s theme was Coral Reef. I used gouache this time which always produces brighter colors, with a splashes of watercolor. I tried hard not to use my black Micron pens for any outlining or details, which was a good challenge in working with paint and tiny paintbrushes.

New Tiny Art: Set of Coral Reef

It’s been awhile since I’ve made tiny art, so I’m excited to be able to share some new work.

Since I was in Florida recently for Spring Break, I still have the ocean, the beach and sea life on my mind, so I went with a coral reef theme for this week’s set of tiny art.

It’s fun to experiment on a small canvas (2.5″ x 3.5″) with a variety of art supplies – this week I used my gouache palette, Micron pens and white Gelly Roll pen to add a few details.

I try to post these tiny pieces of art regularly on Instagram if you want to follow along. I love the challenge of coming up with a weekly theme and working on a small canvas, so I’m hoping to continue this regular art practice in 2016.

Happy drawing!

Last week’s theme was going to be Sea Life, but this Octopus took over my sketchbook page so I just went with it. I love drawing fish and ocean life so I’m going to keep going with this theme.

New Art Project for 2016: Week 1

In order to continue my mission to draw all the time and fill up more sketchbooks in 2016, I came up with a new grid to help me stay on track each week. I’m going to use a grid like this to do daily drawings with a weekly theme, while experimenting with watercolor. At the end of each week, it will be nice to have seven new drawings and a full page illustration.

My first theme is arctic wildlife, with a background wash of light blues.

I have been making a list of themes and things to draw, so this year should be full of more creative challenges. I’m looking forward to bringing my sketchbook pages onto the computer for lots of new digital art this year. Happy drawing!
