With it being the last day of school I’m ready to show what i have my drawing board. This beautiful pup is growing on me as I pull in some of the essential details. She’s looking so good. Excited to show you the next update already. Be ready for some posts coming up on secret commissions I finally can share. #drawing, #aleciagoodman, #2022, #portrait, #pastels, #dog, #labradoodle

Pulling The Details

As I’m working on this one starting to get excited as some of the details lost in shadow are found. Livy is looking good. #aleciagoodman, #art, #portrait, #dog

Sizing and Tech Issues

This beautiful and sometimes shy girl is starting to take shape. Nothing like figuring out past notes and numbers to get her matching to her previous sisters’ portraits. I’m working hard to figure out some of the details hiding in the shadows (aka nose and eye area). But the magic is working thanks to some amazing movie soundtracks, 300 and Titanic, I’m rocking out to. #aleciagoodman #portrait #pastels #painting #drawing

Dirty Stinky Cheeky Pig

My daughter wanted to do chalk drawings today after school. This guy emerged and I enjoyed being quick and loose with it. He won’t last long though as it started to rain on us. I think we need to get some more chalk, especially black. Where’s your favorite place to draw? #aleciagoodman, #pig, #cat, #sidewalk, #chalk, #bubbles, #bath

Embrace Your Awesomeness!

It’s done. This went much faster than I imagined. It looks so good and my daughter is thrilled. Can’t wait to get it back to frame and hang in her room. #panda, #sunflower, #art, #painting, #watercolor, #tombow, #aleciagoodman

Speed Painting

It’s almost there. I was really excited about the speed of this one. The whole thing came together so fast. Now to figure out the words of encouragement. My son suggested Kung Fu Panda, “Embrace Your Awesomeness!” I think thats perfect. How to get it to work… #panda, #art, #painting, #watercolor, #aleciagoodman

Bursting With Color

It’s moving along. I’m excited to see where this goes from here. The piece is going to be bright and full of color, although not very realistic. Would you be more free with color or stick more to nature? #Panda, #art, #sketch, #color, #watercolor, #brush, #sunflower, #aleciagoodman

Pandemonium

My daughter gets to participate in state assessment testing this year. I’m currently working on a poster to encourage her to do her best. Not too long ago I did a special dragon for my son. Thinking this will be a fun one to paint. What do you think and how would you approach a poster? #panda, #sunflower, #sketch, #watercolor, #aleciagoodman, #pencil

Lightning Roost

Inktober Day 12 Roof, I struggled with this one a bit. Mainly because I love drawing architecture. I wanted to focus more on a piece rather than the whole. With a little research I found just about anything can be used on a weather vane including flying pigs, mermaids, dragons, horses, and dogs. What would you have for a weather vane? #Inktober, #roof, #rooster, #directions, #wind, #metal, ink, #art, #farm, #fantasy, #aleciagoodman

Sticky Situation

Inktober Day 12 Stuck, my son suggested this idea. We enjoyed watching the wild hamster video through BBC. https://youtu.be/rkZ6gzyg7yY
