Happy Birthday Dad


Charcoal Drawing

Playing with charcoal tonight. 


Two pages today. 

Charcoal Egg and Other Stuff

Rather straightforward. It’s an egg. In charcoal. 

I need to work on the lighter shading though.  
I also made other stuff today!

I took a bookbinding class with a friend and this is the result.  

It was interesting. Learned new stitches and plan on making more journals soon. 

I also made myself a new bracelet which I’m super excited about.  

I love Lampwork beads and I especially love getting them from friends. 

Small Art and Husband Art

Today I couldn’t focus so I did little drawing. Quick sketches and small art. Just played.  

But! I got Wade to draw with me and he did this.  

He’s so talented. 

Charcoal Portrait

Shading and highlights, and trying to work on proportion (just look at the eyes to see how well that went).

Also did a little welcome video explaining the method behind the madness. Ok, the why’s of the project, not madness.

Charcoal Still


Charcoal Drawing

Very simple drawing today. I won’t even do a second post on my other blog with materials. This is just charcoal on paper. My new 300 Series Strathmore 9″ x 12″ journal.  

 I wanted to play with charcoal and work on my shading. 

Walking in a Fog

Today has been such a weird day. I feel like I’m walking in a fog, can’t concentrate, and super tired. I blame the weather changes here in Edmonton. 


Drawing of a Girl

I have a brand new sketch book and I was dying to try it out. It’s a lot bigger than I am used to but, after today, I’m confident that I’ll have no problems filling it out.
