From My Word Bowl – 9

From My Word Bowl – 9 This week I drew two great phrases and the word, and, from my word bowl. The sketch I did, I didn’t really “fuss over”, except to add some watercolor to it.   I think she looks a little surprised, by what I’m not sure, but I’m happy that the […]

What a busy week!  How was your’s?  I’m hoping it was wonderful and that you’re all set to have a fabulous and relaxing weekend. In between all the busy stuff that life throws at us, I did some doodles and a couple of quick little postcard size paintings. The doodles were done on two separate […]

Farm Fresh Sketches

My theme this past week seemed to have been centered on farms and freshness, thanks to Junelle’s Farmers Market Yum and Art Workshop.  This is the last week for it and I am slowly working through it and savoring every project.  I love it!  The nice thing about it is even though this initial workshop […]

The first was a challenge by my mother to make some happy looking girls.  Smile, girls, smile! The second was that I joined Junelle Jacobsen’s Farmer’s Market […]

A Weekend of Sketchy Fun

It was Sketch Fest #52 over at Ellen Million Graphics, this past weekend. There were so many art prompts left by fellow artists and art fans. Inspiration overload!!   I selected a few that spoke to me. I started with the prompt ‘A spot of color’ given by Lynn Chua. This is what I did. […]

A Sketch With No Name Yet

A little sketch which I’ll work more on.  She has no name yet.  I’m drawing a blank as to what to call her.  Do you have any suggestions? Linking to: Friday Sketches

Tangle Head

Over the weekend I took part in Ellen Million Graphics Sketch Fest #51.  I had hoped to have more time to spend, but as the garden and outdoor chores come first, I only had an hour and only time for one sketch. I chose the prompt “Zentangled Anything” by Tiffany Guin and came up with […]

Girl Friends

A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future and accepts you just the way you are. Girl Friends by Tori Beveridge – 8 x 10 doodle on mixed media paper, done in ink and watercolor

Blue Princess

My love for fantasy, fairies and elves made me sketch this fairy tale princess.  Ink, acrylic and Faber Castell gel sticks on 5 x 7 mixed media paper. I call her ‘Blue Princess’ because of the obvious amount of blue I used and because she looks a little melancholy.
