Flowers aren’t usually my first choice for what to draw or paint, but my teacher last year pretty much gave you an A if you drew flowers or butterflies. You gotta do what you gotta do right? So almost all of my pieces of art that I turned in were flowers. Guess what? I got an A+ in the class. This is a bouquet or flowers in pastels. It was the first time I had actually used that expensive pastel paper so it was definitely a learning experience.
This is another charcoal drawing of some pretty flowers. But this isn’t just some flowers. I only used black and white charcoal on this piece. The paper was a light purple shade and I colored the background to work with the negative space. I really like how it turned out. A lot of people don’t realize the paper wasn’t black.
This is a charcoal drawing of a stack of books and some flowers. I love the way charcoal drawings come out but I hate that when I work on them the rest of the day I walk around school with black all over my clothes, hands, and some even ends up on my face… embarrassing.
This is a sketch of my mixer because out of all the kitchen appliances at my house, I think I love this the most. Along with drawing, painting, card making, and scrapbooking, I love to bake. Recently my mom and I have been making tiered cakes and that’s been a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. Don’t forget expensive considering it just gets eaten after we finish.
This is a sketch of a VW Bug. My dad’s a bug fan of old VWs, even going to great lengths to drag to a Bugorama. Yeah, that won’t happen again. If you aren’t aware, no, a Bugorama is not something to do with insects. It’s a car show for old VWs that includes drag racing and food and you’re able to buy new car parts and all that. Anyways, I drew this for my dad cause he’s always wanted a VW Bug but we finally convinced him that it’s a girl car and it doesn’t matter what color you get it in, it will look girly.
This is a sketch of my piano as a tribute to my late piano teacher. I took piano lessons for about 7 years until my teacher expectantly passed away a little more than a year ago. I haven’t touched a piano since I got the call about her passing. She was like my aunt and after seeing her once a week for about an hour we became pretty close. After various recitals, piano is the reason I can actually talk in front of the class now without peeing my pants. Okay I never peed my pants, but I’m more comfortable in front of crowds and I owe that to piano. Also, after many years of struggling with rhythm, I think I finally got it. Having all those years of music is helping in various ways of my life and probably has helped me with my art in some way.
This is a sketch of some garden tools. This is also an example of the type of stuff I had to draw in my painting 1 class at school. The teacher said something about identifying yourself with the garden tools. I don’t know about you, but I don’t identify myself with garden tools. I don’t even garden for that matter, but I still drew the stupid tools. Apparently my teacher liked it cause she took it out of my sketchbook before I even turned it in saying she needed to put it in the art show.
This is a sketch of Rapunzel and her chameleon, Pascal, from the Disney movie, Tangled. I drew this on November 17, 2011
This is a drawing of an ice cream sundae that I drew when we were told to sketch our favorite food.
These are some cute heels I decided to sketch when I got an assignment we had to draw a shoe or shoes for homework. I found a drawing that looked like this and I thought it was perfect so I had to try and draw it too. I unfortunately don’t know who drew the original, but it was much better than mine.
