Immovable

If: Immovable
Claire was ever so glad to have an immovable playground.

Well this is my first attempt at going digital.  This was very difficult and I will need much more practice.  I did have a fun time working on this though.  I think a book on photoshop will help.  If you have any tips or favorite effects etc I would love to hear from you.  Thanks for stopping by.

Good night. :)

Saturday Afternoon Painting


I am working on adding light and shadow to my paintings.  I have also started using a blow dryer to speed up the drying time...I think it has made a big difference.

I am going to give this one to my mom and dad.  Hope they like it. :)

Atmosphere




I love the nice calm atmosphere in the evenings when I sit down to drink a cup of tea with my husband.

I have been watching some DVDs of Charles Reid working in watercolor. He really is amazing. He inspired me to loosen up and just let the colors flow together. FUN STUFF! :)

Star Gazing



Here is my submission for Illustration Friday. I am still trying to get the hang of watercolor. If anyone has any tips or helpful resources, I sure would appreciate the help. :)

My Own Creation



Still learning how to best use watercolor. I am really excited about this little guy. I made a different bird for my friend at work and a co-worker saw him and wanted one. This one is for her...I hope she likes him.
