Ballpoint pen and watercolour mixed media doodles. I love mixing things up! I think there is a little bit of coloured pencil, too.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga, by me. Intriguing people are lots of fun to paint and make great subjects.

Painted with watercolours and a ballpoint pen.

Live Painting Demonstration, July 2017

In July, I was invited to do a live painting demonstration as part of the Quilt of Belonging exhibit and Canada's Sesquicentennial Celebrations. Follow the pictures below to see where I ended up and a little while after I started (it was a blank canvas to start). Five hours in all, from noon to five.

 The Quilt of Belonging exhibit is on at the Cotton Factory in Hamilton. It's a beautiful piece and a massive undertaking. Should you have a chance, definitely drop down or make time to see it. The couple pictures I have posted below don't do it justice.

Wonder Woman - ballpoint pen sketch

Have to spruce this place up a bit!

Here is Wonder Woman as doodled in my sketchbook the other day. Still have to see her new film!

New Art - Bishop Briggs portrait

Welcome back to my blog. It's been some time. Many big changes have occurred in life since I last posted. I'd love to say more but I don't even know where to start.

I do think it would be nice to share some more artwork with you though. Here is the first piece.

Bishop Briggs in watercolour, as captured at my drawing board. And the pencil tray is shown below.

My reason for painting Bishop Briggs? I really dig her music - River - is a fantastic song and I feel so much emotion running through it.

Daily Sketching Ritual - Ouch!

Going on with the blue - yesterday had ballpoint pen and pencil on toned grey paper. Today, we're back to the copy paper. :)

Can you guess who this is?
