My New Sea Turtle Plushy!

Hello Friends!

Saturday someone came to the door with a HUGE box! I had been told by my friend, Jill, that something was coming in the mail to me. But I was shocked by the size, and HAD to open it even though it was for Christmas. πŸ˜‰

So my husband took a picture of me with my just washed but uncurled hair holding my new sea turtle named…Jill.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ˜€πŸ’

Inktober 2018 – Day 25 – Prickly

Hello Friends,Β 

MeetΒ Prickly Pete! IΒ got this done later today than I usually do, but here is my ink drawing for today’s prompt, “prickly.”

The best part of my day today was getting to visit with my daughter for a few hours. She’s been staying in town all week because of work, but she loves her job at the doughnut shop. She usually goes in around 5 or 6 in the morning. So she still has a lot of her day left when she gets off. I am proud of her and glad she loves her job. So it was nice to have her home for a couple of days.

Well, I hope everyone has been having a great week. I am not sure how many more days of Inktober I will do. I am reading LOTS of picture books and still doing the online art classes atΒ https://www.svslearn.com/

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 😁

 

Inktober 2018 – Day #18 – Bottle

Hello Friends,

I just took a few minutes to sketch this out. The prompt for today is “bottle.” As you can see, my bottle has a message in it. I wonder what it says?

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 😁

Inktober 2018 – Day #16 – Angular

Hello Friends,Β 

I decided to draw an angular shaped sea turtle today with just a regular black ballpoint pen and stencils. No measuring…just eyeballed it.

So…without further ado, meet Angus, the angular sea turtle!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ˜€

Inktober 2018 – Day 15 – Weak

Hello Friends,

Here’s what came to mind for the prompt of “weak” today! πŸ™‚

This was a fun one to do! I don’t often draw people and to do just a cartoon sketch was great!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ™‚

Inktober – Day 14 – Clock

Hello Friends!

Today I decided to do something a little different. I have a really cool magnifying glass that is shaped like a sea turtle. The limbs and head are a copper colored metal and the shell is the magnifying glass. My husband got it for me a long time ago.

I decided to save time (and my sore shoulder) to just trace around the outside of it. Then I just drew in the rest. Pebble numbers and wavy water hands.

So it only took a few minutes!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug!Β  πŸ˜€

The Final Piece

 

 

Hello Friends!

Well, this is the new piece and my FINAL FINAL color piece for the Golden Ticket contest in my class. It is a little bit photo enhanced, and if you saw my last post, you know I changed it some. I added my little fuchsia fish back into the composition. I also made the top dark instead of light because I wanted to give it the affect of them being at the bottom of the sea where it can sometimes be brighter which means the top of the water would be darker. I still didn’t get it how I wanted it, but I have to have it in by Friday, and I haven’t started on the second piece yet!

I think I am just going to do a black and white drawing with ink for that one which is an option. I plan to also make it much simpler with lots of white space which our instructor loves in picture books.

Yesterday I got another massage which helped a lot!! And I scheduled my next one for the first week of November. If I am going to keep doing this kind of work, they are going to be a necessity! My arm isn’t bothering me at all; it’s mostly my lower back, but I am going to sit for awhile now and work out a composition with pencil that I can go over in ink for the second piece of this final work.

I hope everyone is having a great week! It feels like it should be Friday already. I’m not used to working full-time! Ha, ha!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ™‚

Mr. C. Turtle & Friends – Different Layout Idea

Hello Friends,

Well, last night I decided to quickly sketch a different layout with my Inktense pencils for my piece. So what do you think of this one…

compared to the first one…in terms of colors, design, etc. I would really appreciate anyone’s input! Thanks! (My shoulder is feeling much better!)Β  I really want to finish for this contest. πŸ˜‰

Toy Box Sea Turtle Finished!

Hello Friends,

I am done with my first sea turtle in acrylics! I ended up working on it some more last night. I worked on the turtle a little and added the foliage. Then this morning I finished the turtle and removed the masking tape from around the edges. I am very glad to be done! I took the picture of it outside so it was on the sidewalk. The cut-out part is one of the handles as this was a short side piece.

I think I only have one more piece of the toy box to paint. There are two pieces left, but one of them has what I already painted on the front of it when we first put it together about 19 years ago.

We got the toy box for our son when he was a little over two years old. So I stenciled a teddy bear and hearts and his first and middle names on it. So that will stay the way it is. I don’t even want to “touch it up.” I guess I will take a picture of that and post it last.

Eventually, I will try to find some kind of hangers for these so I can put them on the walls in his old room (which is now my writing/workout room) when I am done with the last one.

This has been a challenging and fun project. I have really enjoyed doing these. Thanks for everyone’s support in the blogosphere! I really appreciate all of you.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug. πŸ™‚
