Making Some Progress....

I'm still working on that one painting! 
So far this is where I am with her....


She still needs work but I'm liking her better 
even though I don't think her eyes are good.

I've also been playing with some other pieces. 
I work on these in the evening while we're watching TV....


Here are some close-ups....



They started out with water soluble crayons, then I added some black lines and now I'm using colored pencils and maybe some markers. I'll probably add some more layers of doodles on these. They're still a work in progress as are so many of my things!

Have a fun weekend!!

  4. Bonjour Janet!
    I love your girl and her hair! The colorful pieces with the crayons and black lines are wonderful. I need to try my hand at this again. I used to love just doodling and seeing what would happen. I love using lots of color and black lines too. Have a great day.

  5. Janet, you have been busy!! Glad I could stop by, I sent you an email yesterday but not sure if you got it. My connection is completely unreliable in this hotel.

    This turned out beautifully but I'm also really intrigued with your colorful swirly-lined ones! NICE WORK!!

    I also got drawn into that article you linked to about Facebook. Boy it does make you think. Thanks for sharing...
    Best wishes, tj

  22. Wow! I love these works - the overlapping and intertwining and abstract feel... lovely and vibrant. I bet these were so enjoyable to create, getting lost in the doodly lines and colors...
