Doodle Who?

Hi Guys!
Just finished this an hour ago to join fellow Butterfliers in this week's theme of Doodles.
It's a great theme....an easy theme...and yet, I'm here again at the last minute!

So, without further ado.....here is my offering:


Sharpie and watercolor pencils with a touch of white gel pen and acrylic spots.  I really think something like these would make such pretty bookmarks :)


Fun stuff :)
Y'know, I've been using Sharpies quite a bit lately....to outline details (like in her hair) in the Daydream piece I shared with you a couple posts ago.

...and to make my lines more visible for painting over...like in this work in progress...


I hope to have her done this weekend to share with you early next week!



Also, I'll be putting up Lesson #3 in Carla Sonheim's Drawing Lab next week which just so happens to be titled "My Pet Project" and has you doing quick gesture drawings of your pets.  Perfectly coincides with Butterfly Effect's theme of Pets!  

What a nice co-inky-dink ;P

One last thing!  My friend, Heather, just opened a new Etsy store and is having a little giveaway to celebrate!
It would be grand if you could pop in and wish her luck :)

Have the bestest weekend everyone!
Hugs all around,
Cameron

awesome owl!! you know how much I love them, lol!
I can't wait to see your work in progress, it's nice to see the initial phase, and there is nothing wrong with using sharpies, lol! you are tempting me to go pick up some more.
Hey, I found my drawing lab book, and did 3 pages of cats today, haha! so if I can get myself organized I may join you :-)
may as well open one of my many many art books, lol!

Jennifer said...

I would hardly call that owl a doodle! It's a darn amazing piece of art! I adore him. And I never would have thought to use sharpies... I find I restrict myself too much, I need to become more mixed media-y. I would never have thought that you had used sharpies in her hair! You really would never guess!

Heather Henry said...

That owl is quite lovely and I agree, would be a perfect bookmark or greeting card or anything really. Very cute, I love swirlies. I like all of the details you added to it. Also, your new piece that you're working on it gorgeous, I can't wait to see it all finished.
Hope you're having a grand weekend! :D
Cheers!

Kristin said...

Geri Centonze said...

Hi Cam - these are wonderful new pieces. I love the addition of the sharpies...gives them some punch!

Faerie Moon Creations said...
