Garden Time

Garden time

Well, sooner or later a Scottie Dog had to show up in one of my sketches. I won’t say if it’s Maggie or Fergus…use your imagination! You may notice the colors in this sketch are more vibrant and that is because I am constantly experimenting with new techniques and materials (an expensive thing to do). Anyway, I have discovered these awesome markers by Copic in my research and I requested a sample. Well, after I tried it, I had to order some in many colors!! I really love the way they bring a sketch to life! I even like the way you can see the marker lines as these are whimsical drawings anyway and it just adds to that fun look. Boy,  this is a tough job… but somebody’s gotta do it!!  Life is good…

    I love those markers! I use them to do outlining and lined or dotted shading on my acrylic paintings after they’ve dried. Adds another layer to a project.

    p.s love the garden paintings and the Scottie!

  3. I love the variety of “things to look at” here. I bet I could see this art 20 times and take away something new each time.

    About time you put one of your “fur kids” in one of your art pieces. Nice bright colors and … I love that sun! Cute!

  5. That’s what the puppies said =)

    Oh, lucky you having Coptic markers! I am an experimenter in materials and it is so exciting to see how to use new tools. I love your scotty dog … reminds me of a cartoon series I did when I was a kid about a Sherlock Holmes kind of detective dog who was a Scotty with a pipe and hat. And now I am inspired to do images of my spaniel after my daughter told me a story about him as a fairy!

    So happy to see such lively, joyful and playful art! Glad you’ve taken on this tough job 🙂

      Thanks Lis. Glad you are inspired to do some images of your own doggie. Can’t wait to see them posted =)
