Cherries

Believe it or not, it was the ramekin that was most difficult to paint. The cherries and tablecloth were a lot easier and much more fun.

Sketches with Grayscale Markers

I was introduced to grayscale markers last year and I can’t rave enough about them. They are more satisfying to draw with than pencil in my opinion due to how smoothly they flow and how quickly you can draw with them. It feels like painting more than drawing and seems like an ideal way to plan a painting.

Skull and Roses

12″ x 16″, oil on canvas

I love Mexican art with skulls and paintings with a “memento mori” theme, so I bought myself a replica skull (and some silk roses) from Etsy to paint. This was done faster than usual for me…I think I’m finally figuring out how to paint flowers.

Living Room

16″ x 20″, oil on canvas

Spending more time at home, so I figured I may as well paint it. I loved making all the tiny things, especially the little paintings.

Old Sketches

I found some old sketches at my parents’ home…from over 20 years ago. They were mostly done for a sketching class I took in college and after that. It’s so nice to find these now that I’m back to making art again.

Toad

Saw this handsome guy on a walk and the kids begged me to paint him 🙂

Still Life with Buddha

12″ x 16″, oil on canvas

I set up this still life because I’ve read that painting sculpture can help you learn to paint portraits and figures. Will be doing more of this before trying to paint an actual person.
