New Semester, New Doodles

So yesterday was the first day of spring classes. This semester should be pretty good... I just have my last two art classes - Ceramics and Advanced Drawing - plus some general education that I put off until now. I'm just glad I'm done with math! Anyway, my sketches are now limited to what I doodle in Communications (because unfortunately I won't be able to sketch people working out in my Aerobics class) and anything I doodle at the library or other places. Or who knows, maybe I'll bring my sketchbook along to my P.E. lecture, too. We'll see.

I might also post pictures of things I make in Ceramics, but that's if I manage to make something I'm proud of. :-)

Here's a page of doodles from the first day of Communications... It should be an interesting class. The teacher complained that we were being "boring" because nobody raised their hand to answer her questions. So, I'm looking forward to another four months of drawing the backs of people's heads - I mean, four months of studying communications.

And here's a doodle from the cafe.

I just liked this girl's hat.

Finished this last Thursday. I still haven't thought of a title for it (I'm completely stumped on this one), but oh well, I'll come up with one eventually.

Here It Is Again

I think I'm pretty much done with the face... I just need to finish her left eye and add some more color to her forehead and lips. I need to start focusing on the fingers now.

First Post of 2007 (Wow, How Time Flies)

I can't believe it's 2007. I keep thinking that just can't be right... But time does fly. Anyway, I have three pictures for the first post of the year.

I started this one last week. Relatively speaking, I really haven't done all that many commissions lately, but it still feels like it's been ages since I painted something for myself. It's nice to be back into painting whatever tickles my fancy. I love this one. I'm having so much fun working on it. There's just something about the look on her face that makes me smile.

I've gotten a lot of work done on it since I took this picture, so I'll post a new picture of it this weekend.

This one is the very last painting of 2006. I finished it just before New Year's. I was on a long-narrow-composition kick when I did this (and maybe I still am... who knows). Okay, it wasn't really a kick. Do four paintings almost in a row count as a kick?

Last but not least, I finally got around to photographing this little one, which I absolutely love. You can't see it very well in the photo, but there's a lot of variation between pink and green in her skin that was really fun to do. I painted this because I loved her vaguely moody expression, and how dynamic the pose is.
