Doodle 333 - New Doodles!

Well, today was quite full, spent most of our time playing at Typhoon Lagoon, one of Disney's water parks... it was so much fun!
I highly recommend it, it is very pretty and has a bit of everything for the whole family, really, it is a great place to spend the day on this super hot Florida weather.
I knew I would be exhausted afterward, so I doodled really early in the morning.
You can see a sneak peek of one of the paintings on the series of dapper animals.

Doodle 332 - Otterly Sharp

Well, I did quite a bit of work today, got the initial layers of the new painting up and prepped a teensy little canvas for the next animal of the series.
Now I'm off to see fireworks at the Magic Kingdom... hello, my name is Saudade and I am a fireworks over Cinderella castle addict... at least I know I have a problem LOL.

Doodle 331 - Brand New Canvas

And so, the second painting begins!!!
Also, I hit up the store and got a couple more canvas for the rest of the series and fleece to try and make a stuffed toy... I'm not so good at sewing, but I need a stuffed piggy for my Mabel Pines cosplay.

Doodle 330 - Dapper Giraffe Finished!

... I can't quite believe another painting is complete! And tomorrow I am set to start yet another one.
I am so getting the hang of this again.

I am thinking of putting this painting up for sale on Ebay once I finish the series and get good quality photos to make prints available.

Hopefully someone will want to give this guy a home.

Doodle 329 - More Progress and Crafts

Did a bit more headway on the painting, should be done soon. I also decided to finish my 4th of July wreath before the holiday got any closer!
I used a bunch of different ideas I gathered on pinterest and made my own interpretation.

Doodle 328 - Painting some moar.

Sometimes I feel like I'm slightly colorblind and the colors don't seem to mix properly... today it was one of those days, but I didn't give up.
Hopefully it will be easier tomorrow.

Doodle 326 - First Layer

Spent most of my morning running around the Magic Kingdom, it was getting crazy hot, so we came back home and I did some more painting getting the first layer of the giraffe up on the canvas, and yes, if you guessed I was starting on the dapper giraffe, you got it right!

Doodle 325 - Moving right along

Got the next canvas on the easel and so spent the day setting a background up. It is a mix and layers of gold, copper, bronze and other colors, it took a while to get it more or less where I wanted to.
The golden canvas was so pretty it gave me an idea for yet another painting... might need to go get another canvas for that soon...
Anyway, here is the project so far. Can you tell what it is?
The sketch is very light right now, will start taking shape tomorrow.

Doodle 324 - Finished!

Well, OK I still need to finish the non-visible sides of the gallery canvas, but the painting itself is done!!!

I am so proud of myself you guys, I haven't painted in so long I thought I had forgotten how, but after this I am more confident and I am excited to start my original paintings tomorrow.

Working on this was great fun, at times I was afraid that I would completely mess it up, there were missteps here and there, but I managed to recover and finish it.

I am also feeling much better, hence why I managed to get it finished today. I am thinking, if the weather cooperates, I might need to hop on over to Magic Kingdom as a treat and ride the Haunted Mansion as a sort of victory lap.

Here are some shots of the painting along with the very first tentative sketch I did on the blank canvas (click on the images to see a larger version):

Doodle 319 - Sick

Well, the cold got the better of me... this means I have been in bed most of the day.
My nurse, (Andrei), forbid me to go out and play... I'll be sincere, my arms feel like they are made out of led, and I am exhausted, so probably is for the better, but still...
As expected I couldn't paint today... it was hard to hold the pencil as it is. Still, I'm being a good patient and hope I will be back on the healthy train by tomorrow... I'm also crazy optimistic.
By now, a very fast badly done doodle before I pass out again.
