Mabel’s Poor Pour


(Mabel by H)

Pour

Poor

Stuns.

Learning all the time and that’s what matters. I discovered I can use lots of different colors on one big piece of bubblewrap either altogether or separately over many paintings thus saving paint to make up for the pouring disasters. (woah that was a long sentence)

Here’s the bubblewrap ones. So easy. Do have a go.

Happy creating! ūüé®

Sketch without looking at paper (I did look at the moose)

Earlier sketch in notebook. I might play around with these in Corel Paint.

Work in progress of moose in  watercolors.

And some moose art practice for kids and adults. I might try this myself.

#drawlloween Day 18 Mask

image

A bugs bunny mask from me

image

and a bugs bunny mask from H.

She was all bothered it wasn’t like the original and too young to realise how much character it’s got and how good the proportions were.

And she refused to color it in. What a diva lol.

I’ve been good so far at not looking to see what others have done before I post mine. There’s a guy on Instagram called Marcos Gutierrez that makes me really embarrassed to post this after seeing his pics. They should be in the Louvre lol.

Any ideas what theme I could do in November? I’m wondering about scribbly drawings of animals painted over. Hmm….

Happy creating!

Bat #Inktober #drawlloween

image

Not phased by the bat prompt H asked to do some drawlloween pics.

There is a bat on the chin. I thought she was going to stop at the skull. I love what she created. It’s way better than mine.

image

A kid’s version of a bat with zentangles. This could easily be a scary cartoon character.

image

And finally a ghost with curly hair. I’m so inspired by H’s creativity.

image

I put a few Halloween characters in the bat wings. There’s fangs, a cat, cobwebs, witch’s nose and a ghost.

Here’s a list of what to draw next if anyone wants to join in.

#Inktober2015 Day 7 Deer in the Forest

ce1c1c879cedc7fc60783208b3073161 (2)

Isn’t this just the perfect scene.

It was probably a bit too adventurous but the way I did the trees made it way easier I could play around with backgrounds and textures on computer.

image

I let Hannah do the shading on the deer on the left and then panicked and got her to do her own pictures.

image

I carried Junior on my lap while H drew him. He’s neither blue nor black ūüėČ

image

I love how she put Matthew chilling on the upstairs window.

Let’s all have a day like that (with no falling).

Happy creating!

Kids Straw Blowing Art

I’m starting something new on Mondays about art for kids or by kids.

WIN_20150530_132356WIN_20150530_131902 WIN_20150530_132014WIN_20150530_131835WIN_20150530_132100WIN_20150530_133611WIN_20150530_133618WIN_20150530_133405WIN_20150530_133631

Today I have a video of my kids and their friend using straws to make pictures. I love how my youngest did a scene and the older kids did abstracts and then mushed all the colours together. They definitely played with their paints. They played around with sponges too.

Getting crazy near the end they all did hand prints and this monkey decides to carrying on painting up his arm. I haven’t seen him paint in so long, this is great to watch:

 

If anyone paints with their kids and would like to send me a picture of it. I’d love to share it on a Monday some time.

Have a great day!
