Every Day in May

Here's another page of Every Day in May sketches.  In the bottom right corner you can see a Decorated Versal I did at the Westcoast Calligrapy Society meeting the other night.

More Free Collage Paper

 Nope!  I couldn't stop at one, so here's a red one for you.  Feel free to download it and use it in your art.

And, because you don't necessarily want all of the layers I do, here are a couple of more versions:

Layer One

Layer Two

I'm working on a blue one, but I've run out of gas somehow.

Collage Paper

At our last ATC swap, our fearless leader, Penelope, was making collage paper from scraps.  As usual, she inspired me with her beautiful creations.  This yellow one is my first attempt.  Feel free to download it and use it in your art!

First Foray of the Urban Sketching Season

I made my first foray of the urban sketching season last week.  I found a lovely bench in the sunshine at 19th and Cambie and sketched the view of our local market.  Heaven.

New Sketchbook, Baby Ducks

The new sketchbook requires a new approach.  It has coloured card stock in it, so watercolour can become muddy.  Pencil crayon helps to perk it up.  I'm still experimenting, obviously.

Twelve Apostles

Acrylic on Paper

Earlier in the week, some of my artist friends and I took part in an acrylic painting workshop at Artist Think.  I did this from memory after watching the video, because I neglected to print out the reference photo.  

Twelve Apostles is a rock formation near Victoria, Australia
