Improve your use of Value

James Gurney has a great post on his blog about using value.  I have to try this out.  Seems like a great exercise.

Drawing Dragons!

ROAR!!!  ROAR!!!

Last night my almost 3 year old son and I had a sketch night.  We broke out the crayons and watercolors and scribbled some dragons.  I had so much fun drawing with crayon!  Then I went over it with this cool brush tipped pen I bought.  I also made a few line drawings for my son to color in with his watercolors.  The mouth is red because that's where the fire comes out!  ROAR!!!

We decided that we'll start a field guide to the local dragons.  Like the ones we find in the garden and such.

A going away gift.

My friends Aisleen and Chris are moving to San Francisco.  It's really cool and exciting but at the same time it's sad to see them go.  They are both amazingly talented artists and I'm sure they're going to be really successful out there.  And they get all that nice weather!  So I painted a watercolor piece for them in the spirit of San Francisco.  Maybe when they look at it they'll remember good times on the East coast.  Good luck guys!
