Sketches and Finished Pieces

I love the basics of just pencil on paper.  Usually, I just use a #2B, on my Canson hardback sketchbook, and I can flesh out an entire drawing that way.  It's interesting to see how the character of the drawing changes once I begin painting it.  Sometimes I like the outcome of the painting in which it looks different from the original sketch.  

On the finished frog piece I kind of missed the warty-ness of the original sketch, but all in all I liked how the personality of our little frog here turned out.

New Facebook page

I'm learning as I go, and that can actually be fun at times.  Well, it can also be a headache too, but whatever, I'm making progress.  I just created a Facebook page today.  You can find it here at this link (only if you already have a Facebook account):

You can also click on the Facebook photo badge at the bottom of my blog here.  I just learned how to use that nifty little widget today.  I consider this a small triumph, and I'm mighty proud of that!
