Lobster Head Painting // Sketchbook Sunday!

Hello, friends and happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! Today I am sketching a lobster head my daughter found on the beach last weekend:

Morbid or cool? What do you think? You can see how the painting come together in today’s sketchbook Sunday Video!


The coloring was perfect for the very granular Daniel Smith Primatek paints I picked up on Amazon a couple of months ago. I also used a yellow ocher watercolor from my Paul Rubens palette. This was painted on Paul Rubens hot press block. I used a variety of rounds and 1/4″ angle. *Amazon affiliate links used.

I enjoy painting subjects from life whenever I can. The next time you find something interesting or unusual try painting it! Til next time happy crafting!

PS Everything is back to normal in my teachable school and I am caught up on comments as of Sunday at 10am ET. Everything has been working fine for 24 hours so if you have been waiting to upload artwork you are fine to do so now:) Thank you for your patience!

 

Snow! {better late than never..}

Wait, did I say better?!? The kids were disappointed that we did not have snow for Christmas (I secretly was glad the roads were clear for those traveling!) but boy, mother nature made up for it this week! We got about a foot on Thursday and I awoke to what looks like another 6″ this morning! I’m thinking this would be a good day to stay in my jammies, bake some bread and pick away and my annual craft room reorganizing project. Here is a watercolor sketch I did a few weeks ago of lobster buoys pulled in for the winter:

Time for another cup of coffee, fist I think I will visit my chickens (who, by the way, do NOT like the snow) and see if I have any goodies to bring them…I think I should make them some chicken booties so their feet won’t get cold in the snow. We put more savings down in their covered run yesterday to keep them off the snow but it must have been windy because it looks like there is more snow in there today, poor chickens. Has anyone ever knit for a chicken before…wow, I am Turning into “crazy chicken lady!”

Have fun in the snow (if you have some) and til next time happy crafting!
