Companion IV; Sketchbook Project

Companion IV
by Mary Stebbins Taitt
5 x 5, colored pencils (and a tiny bit of micron pen)
This is my friend's cat.  The friend and cat prefer to remain anonymous. Unfortunately, the drawing on the previous page shows through, to some extent (too much to make me happy.)

Next time, I am going to take the book apart and replace the paper.

It's funny to see this so big on here, because the original drawing is only 5 x 7.

Portrait of Graham and Kristina at the Coney Island, Mack and Moross, by Mary Stebbins Taitt, artrage digital painting from SCRATCH (no photos were damaged or abused [or even used] in the making of this art piece.)   The likenesses are BAD, because I'm not that good with likenesses anyway and they got up and left before I finished (drawn from life).

Virtual Paintout, Aspen, Colorado

Aspen, Colorado
the walking trail

Two more pages completed in a two-page spread.    This is another for the Virtual Paintout.  Aspen, Colorado.  I scanned the pages separately and didn't get the register quite right in the image.  Sorry.  It doesn't look like that in the book (in the center.)

Here is the google maps street view image I used to paint this from (for the Virtual Paintout).

Problem is, I MISSED--Aspen is in Pitkin County, not Summit County.  :-(  I MESSED UP YET AGAIN.

I used to publish things to only one blog, that is, if it was on one blog, I didn't put it on another.  The blogs had different purposes.  But now I ahve different readers on each blog, so in some instances, I'm repeating myself.  :-(  Sorry, if you happen to be one of the few who visits several blogs.
