Kevin Koala's debut online!

Tuesday, August 22, 2006

Here is Kevin Koala, I sketched him recently [all my koalas are called KEVIN - this one is on white paper, using a big black marker, and the sketch is about 30x24". [click the link to read more]

I can't help it - I draw koalas all the time, given the opportunity. A friend of mine has a blackboard on her office door and I can't resist drawing SOMEthing every time I go near it, haha. If I could carry an easel and markers I'd be sketching all day long.

I outlined a Koala on some white linen teatowels recently, in blue paint - turned out pretty good, I must photograph them.

I just read your notes on the yahoo silkpainting site, checked out your instructions for the dolphin and silk scarves, and then moved on to your blog. All are informative and fun - and your colors are gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing your work and technique. I'm new at this, and every tip helps. I learned especially from your overpainting of yellow on the scarf. Would never have known or guessed to do this.

Sandy,

Thanks for your lovely words - I am so glad I've been able to show you something new with my photos online [at my Abfab Gallery]. I do believe that sharing information is far better than keeping techniques 'secret'. Good luck with your painting, keep me posted on your progress.

Ciao for now,
Teena!
