i realized this image never got published/scanned right, so here it is again. in the light of a new month…and 3 WEEKS TIL SPRING(!!) i’m steering away from snowy scenes for a little while, although my ice skating characters are still searching for their background.
here’s a spring-y inspiration:
i have several deadlines before my trip to Iceland for my 23rd birthday, so postings will be a little light for a little while….be patient, friends!!
happy valentines day! xo, nicole and mudpup
mud pup playing with his brother:
when i’m not sketching ice skaters, i’m dreaming of spring and mud pup!
a valentine’s day teaser:
and some spring-y characters that make me yearn to see the green grass again:
gotta wait til monday for the full valentine’s post though!!
love, until then….
a little bit of this:
a warm mud pup…
a little bit of that:
westies at play…
with the snow, my palette is going a little cooler, and more purple,
and for now, i’m going with it!
in the bitter cold…happiness is a warm puppy.
or, in my case, a mud pup and a cast of friends in the works.
i have lots and lots of images to clean up, but for now, here’s some winter warmers:
mixed media snow girl sketch
watercolor of dinsmore court awaiting the snow
starting from most recent to oldest, here are some sketches of mud pup I’ve been experimenting with:
this is a digital sketch, very rough still..
this is a watercolor, probably also my favorite!
and finally, a watercolor, pup in the puddle
i still have mud pup’s plans to explore all of boston. stay tuned!
this is mud pup. he’s my sketching challenge while i figure out new stories, new jobs, and my new life in boston. so, look forward to daily-weekly updates of mud pup’s adventures of new england!
mud pup based on a dog spotted one lovely day in longfellow park, as well as the other little scruffy dogs in cambridge.
drawing on photoshop, just so i could easily play with getting his colors down. it’s quite an autumn palette!
