Woman In A Yellow Hat

I joined Wet Canvas this weekend for the All Media Event. I combined images from two reference photos, one photo a woman wearing a big hat, and one photo a row of tulips.

As I worked on this I remembered my grandmother who always bought a new hat in springtime. She loved hats with lots of flowers and wore them with pride. That was a long time ago.

Red Ball

I managed to get this done today. It is for the Wet Canvas All Media Event for this week. A combination of three reference photos.  This is done with Painter and CorelDraw. A little different from my usual way of working, but I like to experiment.
I used the pastel brushes, the blender brushes and the pencil brushes in Painter11. My dog acts just like that little dog. Maggie isn't interested in chasing most balls. But she does like to watch the people go through all the motions of trying to get her to chase it.

Thank you to Bonnie at Wet Canvas this week for the reference photos.
