This little guy is a welsh corgi. Of course he is. Once upon a time a little girl wanted him strictly because she thought he was one of cute Mexican dogs they call a chiwawa.
He made a little ruffled bark and told her, “No, I am not a chiwawa dog.” She took him
home anyway. They lived happily ever after.
I have combined my love of fonts; this one is Dino Kids, with pencil sketching and digital ribbon and bow, drawn on my Cintique by Wacom. enjoy. purchase
We are finally having some sun here in Mexico. It’s been really cold and I can’t get used to it. So on my patio today I’ve been working on this large watercolor and intermittently putting the painting in the sun to dry. While it’s drying, I catch as many warm rays as I can. Boy, the sun feels great. I have not picked this painting up in a few months as I’ve been super busy with many things other than painting. So in a day or so, it should get finished if nothing else crazy happens.
This woman is a weaver and she was sitting in a dark corner of the marketplace. The sun shone through the archways of the Mexico town plaza. The cobblestone streets are a maze of patterns and colors. Piece by piece, she is coming together. I will add some cast shadows and some detailed drawing elements to help define her more.
This is large, a full sheet watercolor. When you get away from working big, it is scarey to pick it up again. This painting will help me re-discover my old self, when I painted big all the time.
The pallette is my full plastic stephen quiller pallette, now a good 15 or 20 years old. When I grow up, I will get the porcelain studio pallette.
This watercolor is of a Navajo girl wrapped in a colorful blanket. I am including it here so it does not get lost and I can keep some record of it. It is in a private collection in Long beach, Washington.
I am including a link to my online store where I have put her on a few products.
