'it's musical!' by myra anderson...

This is one of the final computer drawings I told you about.  I experimented and found that you can indeed make a nice print!
I have mentioned on more than one occasion that I have been working on paintings and drawings.  Believe me...they are coming soon!

Above and below is the work of artist Vanessa Van Meerhaeghe. One thing I plan to do is to take a book and practices faces...any faces...all faces (actually just some faces). I would like to see if I put in the work will the result I want come? Well? Will it?

'saddle up!' or 'moving on!' by myra anderson...

I will return...but for now...I am taking a small vacation from drawing on the computer using the mouse.  
I do have a few more computer drawings to show you. Just for fun I think that I will try to conquer a different computer sketch program for a  future  adventure.
'ballerina' by myra anderson
This past week I have been doing some paintings and drawings. I've got to stop being so lazy and take some pictures so that I can post them!!!!! This ballerina drawing is a blast from my sketchbook past!
This is someone named Kris? work desk.  Doesn't it make you want to get back to work?

ahh... life...for now, it certainly has it's trials and troubles...but like the shrimp said yesterday...let's not be paranoid about let's just be shrimp!  (Don't worry...doesn't make sense to me either!)

'red town' or 'blueberry city' by myra anderson...

Did I say that I would use imagination? Or did you just imagine that? (see last post) I think that this is okay for a first effort!  This is certainly not imagination run wild lol!.  However I do think it is mission forward...a fashionable a little red town! Where is she headed? What's the story? I dunno!!!
I also 'painted' a fashionable lady in a blue town! And now I'm ready to leave town for a little while!
And so we'll say goodbye to David FeBland for now with another painting entitled 'hip line'! This is a clue to where I am hoping to go next! Perhaps with watercolor lines?

'simply - red' by myra anderson...

It's a joy to be able to produce art that one might consider to be simple and refreshing like a strawberry sorbet on a hot summer's day!  Sometimes...however you may wish that you could produce art like the mighty pomegranate - sweet, red and containing many seeds. 
David FeBland Artist
How can one produce more complex art? One artist said that one thing you must have is 'an imagination'.  So, I tried to use mine.  My next post will show if I passed or failed.  This work of art by David FeBland is delicate and complex at the same time! Perhaps I can do delicate lol!
I have never eaten a pomegranate! I want this dessert but how do you manage those seeds? Uh?

'the runner!' by myra anderson...

The full title of this piece is 'the one said she couldn't run in this dress!' by myra anderson (okay - I don't know how she does it either) True to my word in the last post I was able to attempt a few pattern sketches today.  I will have to take some photos for you.

The fashion illustrations of  artist Anjelica Roselyn feature many delightful and delicious patterns!

'mannequin on the showroom floor' by myra anderson...

'mannequin on the showroom floor' by myra anderson

Usually I write about what I HAVE done but for this post I am writing about what I WILL do.  The artist and illustrator Laura Volpintesta continues to make a rich contribution to figurative art and the teaching of fashion illustration.

With that being said, I plan to research the vast treasure of information she has provided. I am going to examine all of the videos, illustrations and book(s) that she has made available! 
When it comes to rendering fabric Laura is a beautiful pattern maker.  This is a skill I would like to master.

I believe that Laura offers online classes in digital, gouache, marker and more! Below is what she said about one digital app.
 I intend to try this digital app because Laura said so!!!!!  Anyhoo...everything can't be said about Laura in this one post! Right now I'm eating a chicken taco and working on some marker sketches in an old we will have to talk again later!

'yikes!' by myra anderson...

Yes. 'Yikes!' was my first thought after completing this drawing. Whatever the issues may be - I don't even want to consider them right now! I will think about them later.  However I still LOVE this drawing.  It represents the fact that I was looking for 'a little artistic adventure' - but - I still gots a littles ways to go!!!
I also hope to get back to my watercolor sketches like the one above. Hey! Where's that blue brush you see right there! I have to go and look for it!
 What a beautiful drawing by 'thesevyanthouse_illustrations' (as listed on instragram).  Reminds me of the mission and makes me want to get back to work!!
