Waiting for Paint to Dry

Monday Painting

Monday Painting

Quick, loose paintings to warm up my hands and creativity. I need to do this every morning. Both paintings are in oil so I've got to wait for them to dry before listing them in my Etsy shop

New Painting, Hurrah!

Sometimes, we have a bit of downtime at the shop. One afternoon we were goofing off and talking about the most rediculous free tattoo we could come up with. It started out as just a dolphin with a unicorn horn. The idea grew from there and next thing we know we've got a Uni-phin with a fanny pack and a tribal armband, a rainbow, and the words "Ride 'til You Die!" Of course, I had to try to paint it!

And so I did:
Ride 'til You Die!

I didn't get any progress shots of this painting, probably because it didn't take too long. Now I just need to find a good frame for it and hang it at the shop.

Here's a photo of what I use:
What I Use
A Winsor & Newton travel watercolor set, Bombay India Ink, Winsor & Newton Artists' Watercolor brushes. I'm a big fan of Kilimanjaro's 300lb. cold pressed watercolor paper.

I picked up these supplies from various art stores: Hobby Lobby, Micheal's, Dick Blick, and Cheap Joe's Art Supplies. (Cheap Joe's is the only place where I can find the superthick watercolor paper that I love.)

Sketchbook Page!

There was a bit of downtime last night at the shop, so I practiced my lettering in my sketchbook.

A Little Spring Cleaning

I've been cleaning my studio a bit and came across a couple of paintings that I needed to put on my Etsy shop:

Then I decided that I should take new pictures for my Ryan Adams painting and renew the listing:

It's been a lazy kind of day here in Georgia and I'm trying my best to stay productive. Currently there's a load of dishes in the dishwasher and several piles of laundry to wash. Oh boy, housework! :)

Went Shopping
I promised myself that I wouldn't buy any art supplies for the month of February. Well, I did really well on that goal and celebrated by going to Hobby Lobby today. Yay art supplies!
