Finished Puppy

Today is National Dog Day. I love sharing one of my portraits. This beautiful dog is Livvy and i had the privilege to draw her. I was able to finish and deliver it over the summer. Excited to see how her portrait gets framed and hear about her family’s reaction. #dog, #portrait, #pastel painting, #drawing, #aleciagoodman

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

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

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

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

Baring Teeth

Inktober Day 8 prompt is Teeth. The tooth fairy has been visiting our house a lot lately. So I almost went with the obvious, a mouth. I wanted to take it further. A zipper has teeth. It really plays with the contrasts of shadows on materials and especially on jeans. What would you draw for teeth? #inktober2020 #teeth #ink #drawing #zipper #jeans

Catch of the Day

Inktober so it begins. First prompt this year is fish. I’m a bit rusty as I’ve been so busy dealing with 2020 just like most everyone else. Hopefully the ideas and ink will start flowing. This girl was caught over the summer near my house. Always interesting to see how kids handle their very first fishing excursion. My daughter was definitely adamant that she wouldn’t kiss a fish, even if it was her first catch. #Inktober2020 #Inktober #fish #InktoberDay1 #fishing #Girl #water

It’s Coming, Inktober 2020

It’s almost here. The time of year where it gets cooler and many artists are gearing up. All of us hoping our ink lasts and our ideas continue flowing. Every year I use this event to improve my drawing skills and get more comfortable with ink. Wish me luck as I try to tackle this year … working at the same time makes it more challenging just like always. #INKTOBER2020 #INKTOBER

Mindless

I had to really think about this one. In our house most of the time you are fully absorbed in a book. Every once in a while to relax though I escape into music … completely mindless from my surroundings.  #Inktober #Inktober2019 #mindless

Inktober 2018

Seriously happy dance over here. I survived Inktober,  though some of my pens didn’t.  I completed all 31 days, though not all were on time that’s for sure. A drawing a day is a lot of work. I’m curious now that its done, which drawing was your absolute favorite and why? Please comment  with your favorite. Remember all drawings and prints of drawings are for sale,  just contact me for more information. #Inktober #Inktober2018 #wrap
