Shadow Shot - Dress Envy

I was actually scouting out a spot for a nighttime backlit portrait when I cam across this store display window. The dresses were so lovely that I had to take one with me...if only in the camera. To see more Shadow photos check out Shadow Shot Sunday at the link provided.

The Stone Wall

This is Pat in front of the stone wall of the shower in "Jessica's Dream House." I am taking a digital photography class and the assignment is a backlit portrait. I really like the dark and brooding quality of his expression but I'm not sure it isn't too dark. Comment please.

My Favorite Place

It's a beautiful fall day here in sunny Phoenix and I have been out running errands thinking about all of the projects waiting for me at home. I have not started a new drawing, perhaps later today. Of course, this is what is calling my name.

EDM Challenge #3 Purses, Bags or Totes

I finally finished this drawing and my reaction to it was unexpected. Although, technically it is pretty good, considering I have been away from my colored pencils for awhile, artistically it is somewhat flat. What I have learned once again is practice, practice, practice and that even our best ideas sometimes disappoint us in the end.

I also realized that I had not considered that the paper would be too big to fit on the I did a couple of scans so you can see everything and am including a photo (a terrible photo) so you can see the whole drawing in one piece. I love learning new things, don't you!
