Eve and Her Dog (part 3) & Piano Key Miniature

"Eve and Her Dog," small work in progress, 9" x 12", charcoal & pencil on mylar

Now that I've developed the clothesline I feel I want to indicate a building or two behind it in the background to clarify where Eve is, but since I'm not sure if this rooftop scene was in Manhattan or elsewhere, I'm going to ask Eve, and get filled in on that before I proceed further. I'm also starting a small floral mini before I resume on the piano recital miniature because the show I'm preparing the floral for happens first.

Meanwhile, do these eyes look familiar?

I'm also starting a new miniature eye portrait, and this time I'm painting it on a piano key! You can read more about piano key ivories and follow me as I paint this miniature portrait of my own eyes in oils on my eye portrait blog, Eye Portraits in Miniature

Eve and Her Dog, part 2

"Eve and Her Dog," small work in progress, approx. 9" x 12", charcoal and pencil on mylar

I'm developing the rooftop scene in this drawing of Eve I started a few weeks ago. It's cropping a little tightly on my scanner top to bottom. I have a little more work to go on the clothesline and sky behind it.

Returning to blogging soon, but just in the midst of a two week break for re-organizing, and hosting several special guests. I'm looking forward to catching up with some old friends and my Florida cousin who are coming into town.
