Life Drawing on the iPad with ProCreate. I didn’t stay for the long pose.


First of two sessions from life. Oil on Canvas.


First session on a painted version of the Flying Fancytail Mermouse.


Wasn’t sure what else I wanted to do with the mouse and still had some time left in class, so I started a rose. Didn’t finish it and as of this writing have not gone back into it yet.

First session on this Flying Bunny painting (in oil). In all honesty I really didn’t have a solid idea where I was going with this one. I had a rough sketch that I liked of just the bunny. I was very excited about the wings in the rough, but they just weren’t working well in the painting and ultimately I abandoned them to take this in a different direction. It’s always interesting to see where the paintings wander off to when I give them room.

Life Drawing done at Open Studio (Monday) at Steve Carpenter’s Gallery. These were done on the iPad in ProCreate. I didn’t stay for the long pose.

Single session portrait drawing from life (in charcoal). This was a two session sitting but I missed the first one because it was the day I got bit by the cat.


This is based on a drawing that I had done of a fancy tail flying mermouse which I had used for some of my other stuff (business cards and stickers I think). I turned the mermouse to more of a profile which I’m not 100% convinced was a good idea. This one may be finished or I may go back into it some, I haven’t decided yet.

Second session on this flying bunny. Not finished yet, but getting better.

TeeJay Flying Bunny

By this time in the Drawlloween prompts I had gotten frustrated with this year’s prompts. I decided to give up on Drawlloween and just draw things that I wanted to draw.

TeaTime Companion.

TeaCup Pigs.

Cat light bulb. I think I may revisit this drawing as there are a couple of things I would like to do differently. It may work better digitally or in paint so that I can get the color range I would like.

Drawing that I did from the prompt “Dinosaur Cat Pants”. Because of course.

Tyrannosaurus rex in Cat Pajamas  More to come (as always)….

  1. I really like the bunnies and the little tiger mouse in the teacup! The cat light bulb has so many possibilities! I can’t wait to see it in paint…
