New EDM and some others

Hi all ! 

i've sketched a new EDM, #131 : a spray bottle. I'm afraid i've ruined the perspective of the top of the bottle ... but never mind, done it all the same ! Will do better next time.

The sketch of strawberry flowers has been made after a photo by Marylin, found on her blog, and with her kind permission to do so :
I intend to use the sketch for some paintings, when i move in my new home in Mars or April at last ! Though i fear this could be rather in May ...

And, to conclude, some little sketches of Italy too ... of course ! These were done a few years ago. I'm longing for a new trip over there, but as you know ... Italy is always on my mind ...

Wish you a gorgeous creative day,
thanks for your comments, visiting and support,

Some more animals ...

Hi everyone !

First, i deeply want to thank my new friends who have joined the blog, hope to add more articles, photos and links soon for you all. 

So, here are some more animals for the Sketchbook Challenge. Some are very classical, some a bit more weird, and one is not exactly an animal ... Will you accept it all the same ?

Well, i've decided to post the photo of my baby elephant, even if it's not over, indeed it's all white for the time being, because i don't exactly know how to finish it ! I'm okay for the color, but not for the places where to put it, to get realistic lights and shadows !!! (Must say it has been done completely from imagination, memories i guess, without any precise reference to look at, so don't know what to do !).
Any help will be welcome :)

By the way, i don't get time enough to try and change the color of the text, need to make several trials ... Sorry Marissa and Raena.


Wish you happy creative times, thanks for your comments, criticisms, questions, as usual.

First Try for the Sketchbook Challenge ...

Hi everyone !
Hope you're all doing well.
Here are some sketches of "imaginary animals", that i did as a first try for the November Sketchbook Challenge. (You can see the badge in the column on the right).
I've used different medias : ink, watercolor, pencils (some colored ones) and pens.
Many thanks for your comments, as usual.
Well, it seems that people find it a bit hard to read the blog in white. So, i'm thinking of changing the color of the text, or perhaps rather that of the background ... Will try several options, maybe tomorrow, thanks for your opinions too ! 
I've added some more links again, in my VIPs' section, hope you'll enjoy.
Thanks for visiting, have a gorgeous creative week !

New links, new photos and a question !

Roma, Italia, watercolor.
Hello everyone ! I've added some links to websites or blogs i love, hope you'll enjoy. Still lots to add !

Well, i've got a question about the photos of our work : what is the solution when we need to scan a work larger than the scanner window, that is A4 in general ? Are you all using your camera instead ? And if so, how do you get rid of reflections or shadows ? 

Toscana, Italia, watercolor.
Thanks very much for your help, and as always, any question, comment or criticism will be welcome ! Here are some Italian sketches,ciao tutti.

Venezia, Italia, watercolor and ink.
Doorbells in Italy.

Hello dear friends !
First, i want to thank and welcome all my new friends who have joined the blog these very first weeks :) 
How surprising to me, and soooo exciting and inspiring ! Will try not to disappoint you ... 
And, by the way, i'm very glad to discover your own blogs and sites too.
Then, i'd like to give you a link which i find useful as well as funny :

Hope it will work ...
It's a game, maybe you already know it, and the idea is to get enough rice for real hungry people in the world by playing a game on culture, paintings, etc. It's totally free, but each time you're right, you win some rice and then get a full bowl of it, then two, etc.
You just need to beware that the banner (for ads) works correctly, and this is not annoying at all, you almost don't see it.
There are vocabulary questions, but perhaps only in French ? I'm not sure. But for the paintings, it's ok for everyone, and very addictive especially when you can see the bowls filling up with rice !
Thanks again for passing by and for your support, feel free to leave your comments and/or questions, i'll be very glad to reply. Have a fantastic creative week !
