I took an old sketch I had made of Biker Buddy--dunno if I ever posted it--and worked on it some more. A lot more. If it's around anywhere, I will link to the original. It's quite a bit different than this. The original no longer exists, as I changed it. But I MAY have a scan of it. (Well, I couldn't find the original--it may not exist, which would be a little sad, because the earlier image was very different and somewhat more cheerful.)

Water color. The scan is much yellower than the painting, I guess I should have tried to fix that on the computer.

I am taking my second-ever water-media class and did this self
portrait in water color for a take-home assignment, but it doesn't
look much like me, even though all the parts are relatively similar.
I like it anyway (though it is not without flaws).

My sketches lately have been a little sketchy, I think because of impending deadlines and insufficient time due to holiday commitments. (Not that they're ever that great.) These are my last three from this month and the books have been mailed.
These three were done by a combination of image-transfer and watercolor (and goauche and pen and ink in some cases). I created the originals in Photoshop (all from scratch) (well, the bluebird was from a scanned watercolor, posted earlier today). I printed them and transferred them to the paper and painted over the images. I had intended to do more of a collage type of thing, but this is what I ended up doing. I painted the bluebird page with gesso and the other two transfers were done with acrylic medium. The moles don't work well with water colors and I don't know why I keep trying.

The gold pieces are golder than they look in the scans.
