Art Walk {Spring 2014}

I can easily spend an entire afternoon with my pencils and so here is a small collection of some of—though by no means all of—those artistic spring afternoons. All of the pictures have something I particularly like about them, either in the picture itself or the story behind it (I mean all pictures have stories, do they not?) Hence they are somewhat of a small gathering of this loveliest of Springs.


My very first piece of fan-art (and though the sketch is not perfect) it is of the two main characters in High Noon, which makes it perfect. Hence I cannot help but be very happy.


Brier Rose – Her very angular lines were great fun to draw.


The dress was inspired by a Pinterest photo, but the face is all her own. It was not exactly planned, but I love the rather foreign look she ended up with.


Ballerinas are incredibly fun to draw and I am most pleased with this one as, though she was first inspired by a photo, I drew her from memory.


This was inspired by a shockingly terrible book cover for “The Silver Chair” by C.S. Lewis—(Rillian with green hair? I think not)—and the art of Trina Schart Hyman, whose work I greatly admire.

Most of my drawing this year has actually been for letters and card fronts and here are two points that I really like about so doing. 1.) I like how I feel that a special part of me is goes with that letter to its destination and 2.) It makes me feel most creative and a wee bit as if I were Beatrix Potter.

  2. Very fun! I took art lessons when I was younger and really enjoyed them. There's something so fulfilling about seeing a picture take shape under your very fingers, isn't there?

    I especially like the third picture. Her stance looks so natural, and the lines of the dress are lovely.

    It's funny, but when I was 14 or so, I drew a portrait of Gary Cooper while watching High Noon. Hadn't thought of that at all until I saw your pictures here!

    1. Hamlette -- Yes, I was very pleased with how that lady turned out, (especially her face and hair). :)

  3. Oh, yay! Now I can see your High Noon fan art. :) Gary Cooper looks great, you really captured how he looks! I also really like Aurora and the pinterest-inspired one. The folds in the gown are really nice. :) Great job!
