Sorry for my long absence on my blog. I have been working on my writing and have been neglecting the drawing side.
Fall is just around the corner which is my favorite time of the year! I love the cooler nights and the lower humidity this time of year in the midwest. A few of the trees are just starting to get tipped with warm hues of oranges and reds.
Here are a few of the leaves I picked up last Fall.

Here is my digital color study and although it's in final form I am still going to try a traditional version so stay tuned. Here's the original sketch. It's funny, with all the cats I have been drawing lately you'd think I was a cat person but actually I am a dog person. My hubby's allergy to cats is most likey a big reason for that. Don't get me wrong...I love kitties, it's just I am a MAJOR dog-lover!
Another observation I made regarding the chair pattern. I love plaids and polka dots and I realize this pattern may look a bit too traditional or out of style with the current trends but it reminds me of a well loved and worn-in grandpa's chair so I kept the pattern.

OK, here's my first try. I will eventually try one with the boy, too. That is if I find time before the fall mailers need to go out. I have been keeping busy with some work...yay! That is a very good thing considering what a dismal year it's been in the industry. So, once I get my magazine illo. painted, I'll get back to trying another painting. But for now, here is the first try.
