Can You copy,... Him...really?

Her Fun Side Sketch Pencil Watercolors and Ink


Even so Her Fun Side has an morbid sense of humor it is just about  What  we can do with out looking at no one, yet Art should convey  reaction so I do my Part it is up to the viewer, I am not a criticists'? or anything else in particular I Paint! I Draw!  I love and Give back! and I Portray! a Servant to those who are doing the same  and hug all and view as equals.

At first I posted this vid in You Tube and then I felt a bit bad because the high content of obscenity in the music but those are not my words,  even so the words are blipped and  since I'm not only doing Art for my self but also for a bigger audience, I kinda shrunken my self , when I heard comments like What does it means?/ after a wile I have realized that no matter what  I do there's always going to be some,  that will like to say that the Cat has 5 legs instead of four.  please understand that just as music Art is a form of Freedom of expression and it does not always conveys the words..hard to explain but we are also entertainers, I can not apologize because this is a way of expressing the skill. 

I so happened to not only admired both Artists   Beyonce & Black Eyed Peas that by the way not only talented but  their ingenuity to entertain the masses' their hard work and dedication.

Just like a Nude in Art is different than just Naked .... or different between erotic or pornographic, Art

we are in the 21 st century and this is still something that bothers some, how people find certain things obscene, So perhaps next time I do a nude I might have to cover her with leaves just like Margie Simpson on that episode.... This is not conveying obscenity if you feel that this disrupts you please feel free to  go on.. and check other things I got in here...

Again don't hussshhhhh me because I am a women.... I love you too!!

Painting from memory

sketch 20 min.

This are done by memory  re arranging my models eye sockets and move her arms this is the position that I liked the second is a sketch to keep flow going moving her fingers was fun!

Nudes sketch Canson Paper 90Lb

 Pose Num 2 30 min


Canson came up with a new series of papers wind made that are not only economical but very well done,  for this two I just loaded and re use the back of the paper  this is definitely the way you know you got a good well done paper when you can use both sizes with out no problem. In this case is used for  quick studies and sketches.

Pose num 1 30 to  40 min  re arranged the hand twice and re did the face cut her hair etc..never satisfied

Done with what ever colors left  in the palette sometimes I don't know wish combos are in there, makes it look at.
This one is around 20" by 16" approximately more like for landscape  I also use odd sizes and rip off whatever I don't use and keep those as color swatches etc so everything is  re used.

Model is taking from a Reference Photograph  named Caroline, not my cup of tea! I have done her a couple of times,  practically had to change everything and that includes shadows and where highlights are, bad reference photo but we managed. I work with what I got, no matter what,  Don't  stop painting!. think of it as if you're life depends of it, that way you must do it. 

Changed her factions and eyes to the  right also lift up her shoulder in the photo she is looking up and her eyes are much bigger,  limited palette was used for this particular nude...with highlights one brush strokes as well.  This is all for now, the point is to do it, take the brush and do it! no matter how it comes out' uglyfuglys or prettywitties it is you're work, we must learn to embrace those, because from practice is the way we learn...I might come back 5 years from now and might laugh about it, but at least I know this step took me a little further and the next one...

New Painting Watercolors and Ink


Cosmic Watercolor Painting in 140lb Arques 16” by 16” 1/8 approximately
Painting background  is drying now since it has being raining for long periods of time over here, it has being each  layers and blow dry type of process, there’s  layers of blues but for this one changed the flow of it to the left, charging very deep violets and concentrated amounts of dark including ink.  Sumi-e ink is precisely perfect to work in layers because it actually can be added gradually  to let it rest and dry adding  more depth.

Different shapes where created by using the canvas some what like a swimming pool and Alcohol all around so the painting is done intuitively around the splashes of Alcohol, very carefully not to take on the flower petals,  then Alcohol was also applied to the center of the flower in very high key an concentrated amount of colors,  this produces an  acidic effect that worked well for the painting advantage. 
  The flower again  was toned down with a deep wash of cool colors, and then lift up with  mixtures of pinks and reds on the brush’ The process is somewhat difficult to explain because it is lightly lifting and  then applying there’s a scrub lift process in between, it does not leave the paper white since the painting was toned down prior to that process, yet leaving  some parts white purposely.

The Painting in Real Life looks very mysterious and the background deeps are more in to the purple split complimentary colors until the camera upgrade  smiles* I hope you can see at least a nice contrast Thanks for joining in This beautiful journal painting entry today.

On the easel? an nice landscape in Oils and finishing up Utley in Oils as well' and hopefully soon to be finish the Wine painting so stick around please'.

Looking forward to the next project! This has being a very interesting and exiting one!
Music for the background was made with Neon Trees Song titled: Animal   Enjoy!
