Now that the semester is over I can fill my sketchbook with pictures of whatever I want. And I want to draw pretty pretty horsies. I love drawing horses, their big bodies on tiny legs and their wonderful muscles. Throw on nine or so years of horse back riding and you have an obvious explanation as to why I'm a horse girl.

After A Brief Hiatus...

I have been spending the past month slaving over final projects for school and today my classes are finally over! So the first place to go is quite obviously here, to show off some of what I have been doing for the past while.

This watercolor and gouache piece was done for a competition in the illustration department at my school titled "8th Deadly Sin." I picked 'Waste' as the 8th Sin and this is the final result. Painting all the detail in the trash bags took forever but was totally worth it for the final result. The final piece is about 11 x 17 inches and will be reduced down to 2 x 3 inches to be displayed on a business-type card, which is too bad for the detail but will be nice to have.

This is a smaller part of a larger piece titled "Communication" I did at the beginning of the semester. While the rest of the piece didn't quite turn out the way I wanted, I really like the way the wolf is rendered.
