Volleyball T-shirt Design

My husband is the head girls' volleyball coach at the high school where he teaches and he asked me to design a t-shirt for the girls. Unfortunately I don't know how to do any designing on the computer! Thank goodness for my light table and copier that allows me to reduce and enlarge! So, an ink cartridge and ream of copy paper later I think I have a design! I wanted it to look hand-drawn (good thing, huh?) and have a distressed, stamped look. I'm sure that I could have clicked this look quickly on a computer, but lacking the program and the know-how for that, I took my drawing and reduced it down to about 1/2 an inch and then enlarged that which distorted the lines. I scanned the images and emailed them to the printers. Hopefully it will be layered with the netting image in gray, the squiggly image in purple and the "Sunset" in black! If it turns out, I'll post the results!


Bear Painting Process

I thought it might be fun to show the process of creating a painting for a client. I wish I had thought of it earlier so that I could include more steps, but here's what I have. This is a 5"x7" painting "sketch" for the final painting that will be 36"x60". This step is critical for me to work through the color and composition on a small scale and it allows me to give the client a good idea of what their painting will look like.
This is a picture of the final canvas in progress. I did a wash of yellow ochre over the entire canvas and then drew the bear in charcoal and blocked in the dark areas with burnt umber. I'll post more pictures as the painting progresses!
