I have been getting some massive headaches under my eyes lately, add the pain in my hands and eyesight going bad, plus all the other physical pain I have…I am going to try to draw daily until I can’t anymore. Insomnia helped me try out some new techniques overnight. I literally went through numerous paintings, a lot went in the garbage and a few are saved for my kids. They usually get my no-goes and they add their own artistic touches. Good way to recycle your own art. Last one for today…my hands are killing me. Till next time – NE.Perkins
I would digitally create artwork like this when I was pregnant with my daughter. Decided to try masking first, then I painting background, took masking off and painting the black inside of fairy. I love it! Turned out great.
The last few days have been true Oregon summer weather all the way over here in NE Oklahoma. Might as well try my first Oregon watercolor painting. I didn’t do that bad for my first time….Ha! You should see the last couple flops…horrid! I miss my mountain! I have been able to hang out on my 3rd floor, painting and enjoying this lovely weather. Almost time to hideout inside now that the weather is going back to its original hellacious summer temp. To my Oregonians: I miss y’all terribly :)
I am sure I have mentioned this numerous times…I love floral art. You can’t go wrong with simple sketch, some ink, and watercolor. I truly believe anyone can create flowers. My morning routine is usually setting up all my supplies outside (if it isn’t deathly hot), making a morning beverage and drawing. This morning was beautiful and cool out, who knew Oklahoma summer could be so refreshing in mid July! Love it!! Here are a few quick paintings for my Friday.
Have a wonderful weekend y’all :) Till next time. – NE.Perkins
Lot No. 6 celebrates its 3rd birthday this month, July 18th, 2014 and I wanted to create something to commemorate the business and the owner. My last piece is my favorite. This one was inspired by an unknown artist when I was browsing the net for ideas ( I am not a peacock fan and I obviously can’t draw them). Anyway, it isn’t for sale and it was a good practice. I thank the original artist.

“I’ve been going to Mercury Lounge since they opened up in 2005. One of my favorite of three bars here in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Renegade is not far from Merc and Lot No. 6 is in the Pearl District of Tulsa on 6th and Peoria…these three are my favorites. “ -NE.Perkins
