Dino-Cat-Moth


I like this better.  More motion.  And they both lose out.  ;->

Adding a garden background.


Perhaps the dino-bird will be jumping up to get the moth.


Paler garden so I can see elements better.  I won't carve much of a garden ~ I'll pastel color later.

Early Bird & Cat Sketch





Early bird and a cat squaring off over lunch.

In the garden with grass and plantings (likely agapanthus, my favorite alien flower).  Plantings go diagonally across the back.

Maybe some greenery in the foreground or the mid-ground.

More Pastel Play

Bookkeeper

Bookkeeper getting more detailed.  The detail I couldn't get into the etching.  Also I'm really liking the color.


Paleo-Unicorn

Paleo-Unicorn is a failed print ~ the hand was all smeary.  But adding color makes the whole ting dynamic.  Color doesn't come across bright enough, nor does the gold and silver shimmer, but it's rather nice.  Tina told me to stop, it was done.  ;-]

Bookkeeper with Pastel


Bookkeeper

Pastels and pan pastels on the intaglio etching Bookkeeper.  In secondary colors.  Tina had me add more darks and a redder purple in the medium shadows.  Better.

Knight's Tale ~ Canterbury Tails ~ Pan Pastel

Scan.  On printmaking paper.  Nice tooth for Pan Pastels.  Not quite finished I think.
