versions of my next one/two mole(s)(5,6) with Biker Buddy acting as
photographer's assistant. Done in Michelle's Mole with pencil, ink,
gouache, and crayola crayons, lol! I really had fun with this. :-D

I am also trying to learn the lettering but I am even worse at that. I understand that it has to be exactly right or means something else, but I know mine is NOT exactly right so I will tell you what it is supposed to mean: return to serenity. View my rocks here.

Actually, this was a VERY quick black goache sketch of BB last night,
sitting on a chair in the shadows listening to a tape of PB
practicing. It's 5 x 8, on a new pad with new paint and a new brush.
It was really late at night and I didn't do a pencil sketch, I just
splashed some paint on the page. Probably the fastest sketch I've
attempt a water color painting of two crabs. This is the study for
the painting, a digital composit.
As happens way to often, after I posted this, thinking I was DONE with it, I made a variation that I think I like better at No Polar. THIS is supposed to be my master illo blog, but lots that get posted there are better. :-(

a water color mole. I did these pix in it. It's easier to paint in
than the sketch moleskine.
The first is another portrait of BB with watercolor pencils, and ink,
the second a friend at dinner, the third tulips for mother's day and
the fouth the robin which I attempted to paint in as Asian brush style.
I got some books about that but haven't had time to study them yet.
These were photographed rather than scanned.

The girl started from a coloring page. I colored her and changed her some.
The electrical flower is what she sees through her special Ellectrovision goggles--the electricity in all things. Digitally manipulated photograph with Apophysis fractal flame superimposed. Do click on it to see it larger.
