Lots of people post info on their blogs or Facebook pages supporting animal rescue. I often wish I could adopt every critter I see.  I can’t, but there is something I can do to help one rescue – and that’s Phoebe. Here’s a Facebook link to the digital watercolors that I’m doing for everyone who donates $100 to Phoebe’s eye surgery fund.

She had to have emergency surgery to prevent blindness.

Fun with ‘watercolors’

I love working tricks in Photoshop but never was able to get a satisfactory ‘watercolor’ look using brushes or filters. After considerable thinking outside the box, I came up with a technique. I’ve done a lot of portraits and landscapes using this method. It’s kept me so busy with commissions that I haven’t had time to post. So I thought I was well overdue to share some results with you

Making simple collisions these days. A base, a strip or two of torn paper and an image. Then I scan it into Photoshop and add ‘brushwork’. No muss, no fuss, mistakes easily deleted.

Does this need a few more splats of color?

Next time I decide to do a 9″ x 12″ stipple, just shoot me.

Couple of years ago I drew a samovar, inspired by an assignment from the noah scalin book “365, a daily creativity journal”. I blogged about it on March 12, 2011. Never did post the results. Now I can’t remember if this is complete, but I like what I have so far. Again, thanks to Charlotte for bringing samovars into my life.
