Paris offers so much that after all these years, it still remains fresh for my painterly eyes. Instead of being overwhelm with a new city & new adventures, I start my artful day with catching a sunrise from Sacre Coeur.
I then go into the church & open my sketchbook while the angels sing! A pretty lovely start to my Paris Ramblings.

No digital trick on this Easter illustration. Just used photoshop to insert Bunny & Chick onto the Lily border.

An Easter design that started with a pot of Easter lily from the florist.
I didn't know what I'm going to get till I start clicking on different layers on Photoshop. A simple rendering can be quite enchanting with the magic of photoshop.

I kind of like the mood created by combining the distress texture with the black & white floral drawing.The stainglass really pops against the tone texture.Leave me your mailing address under comment, if you want an art card of this new design.

|A NEW DESIGN|
With photoshop, the sky is the limit with just a few clicks. I started by doodling with my 6B graphite stick. I choose this font style mainly because the width is just the right size. I use my kneaded eraser for the polka dots pattern. The fonts came first for this new design

|another nude at the American Wing|
To capture the movement of this sculpture, I express the dynamic gesture thru a charcoal pencil. Paying attention to light & dark forms. Once again, the highlights were enhanced with my kneaded eraser.
