Olive Oyle goes to COOKING SCHOOL in Italy

Olive Oyle goes to Italy, 9″x12

This is a pen and ink wash drawing from a long time ago. Done with walnut ink and simple dip pen nib. I’m posting this to put a smile on somebody’s face if possible. Aren’t you just sick and tired of this sad world some days? Anyway, here she is in all her glory going to a famous cooking school in Tuscany. She believes she can turn a new leaf. What do you think?

Love is in the Air

This watercolor with its soft and highly textured colors was a demo piece that I did in a class I’m teaching. The class is about painting watercolor in layers and stacking them according to their transparencies. The color palette is not my usual and so I’m happy that I am going in new directions. I am using my own hand drawn lettering as an off the cuff expression. We actually used cookie cutters and big flat brushes as well as thin riggers for variety. It was a fun project and everybody seemed to enjoy it. Here it is on textile.
