Just the two of us

Just the two of us © Evelyn Howard 2011

Just the two of us - another one for my Sketchbook Project, which is in a slightly different style from the earlier pieces.

Apple on a plate © Evelyn Howard 2011

A drawing exercise – why is the apple such a hard object to paint? For me anyway…

Happy Weekend

and Paint Party Friday is the place to go for more paintings.

you did a great job with that apple, and nice sketch for the sketchbook too. Hands are also hard to do.

Rosie Kaplan said...

Pretty good apple me thinks!

Lesley said...

The apple looks great! The hands in your other picture are very good. So difficult to do I think.
Happy PPF.

I have missed so much of your postings. Good to see different challenges that keep you busy.

Take care and will be back for visitation. Happy November!

Very romantic! Love it! :)

wow, that cat illustration is gorgeous - it almost looks like graphic design but if its a sketchbook then it must be hand painted? Wonderful! The apple looks great - you mastered it1

Anne said...

Awesome painting with the cats! Love it!

I really like your style is fresh and original. Saludos

The cats work is sweet and creative; about the apple, it would be difficult (or impossible) for me to paint, but you always succeed!
Have a good weekend Evelyn!

That apple looks good enough to eat! Very nice. I love how the two cats are just sitting there quietly looking at the ferris wheel go by. Well done. Happy PPF.

Evelyn, I was just going to key in "that apple looks good enough to eat!" when I noticed that that phrase has already been used. LOL! But seriously, you have done an outstanding work on this piece of art. It is beautiful. Faye

That apple is great! You may have struggled with it, but it really looks amazing.

Love the cats, are they on a date?

"Just the Two of Us" is a wonderful addition to your lovely sketchbook project. :)

I really like your apple painting, too, with its texture and gesture.

Happy PPF!!

EVA said...

These are fabulous! I LOVE the cats! And the apple looks real and yummy!

Tracey Fletcher KIng said...

These are fab.... love the ferris wheel as I am a bit of a fan of them... and the apple made me smile, not only because this is great but because they are my Challenge object all the time... they always give me trouble!!!

Lesley said...

Your apple doesn't look like you struggled with it. I can't figure out what you meant by that comment... You vibrant color choices are wonderful.

hee hee...
«Louis» noticed the "O - Organics" label on the apple. You must have bought the apple at Safeway when you were in California. «Louis» wrote the business plan to justify the "O - Organics" programme at Safeway.

Viola said...

But you made the apple so awesome! :) And the first one here is special and lovely! :)

Phoenix Peacock said...

diane b said...

Well you did a good job of the apple. It looks good enough to eat!

Geckostone said...

The apple turned out great! And wow, what wonderful perspective and great lighting on the cats and farris wheel, love it! Deb

stardust said...

The title "Just the two of us" is very apt to this sketch - how romantic! I like your apple sketch with its shade. It looks delicious.

Cute sketches! I really should try and sketch from real life! So interesting! I've never tried painting an apple. I think it would be a disaster! Patsy from
