Studio Projects Update

The New Year has been slow going for me. I haven’t had much energy to do much.

It was a cold day, I had a few clients and then I made hot butternut soup and had chicken on a gluten free bagel. Very delicious.

The Drawing

Lately I have been wanting to draw and color. I’m working on this peacock. Using mixed media of color pencils and acrylic markers.

Stitching

Here’s an update on Rue Paris

I have 2 more columns left to stitch then I can start of the sky or the road. Not sure which one I’ll pick.

Here’s what I have been up to

I have been busy with my job, so there was a delay to post on this blog and to post new art for my Etsy shop… I also have been fighting my chronic fatigue.

Cross stitch

I have a little update on Rue Paris… I still have to finish this row, one more page left.

Watercolor

I have been watercoloring in my journal. Some art is up for sale on Etsy. These are close up images.

Pen and ink drawing

I only did one pen and ink. It is up for sale on Etsy.

Color pencil drawing

I have not decided if I want to put this up for sale. I normally don’t draw figures.

Knitting

Finished a scarf using searsucker knit stitch. Not for sale.

That is what I have been up to. Also I have blanket I am stitching using crochet. I ordered a book to learn more crochet stitches. I self-taught knitting so I can self-teach crochet.

Coming next year

I have been working on an adult coloring book, I have designed the pages and waiting for more visions. Once it is completed I will decide how to publish it. My goal is this time next year to have it published.

Here’s my Etsy shop – http://www.etsy.com/shop/4pawsartstudio

Thank you for supporting me.

Color Pencil Drawing

Today was a relaxing day, I did not have to go into the office to work. I spent the morning drawing a few sketches. I might make these into larger drawings.

I have been interested to draw lately. There are some changes happening in my life and drawing is peaceful and helps me to slow down.

Tools Used:

  • Faber-Castell color pencils
  • Strathmore colored pencil paper
  • Gamsol mineral spirits
  • Paint brushes
