October to November II

Here are some shots taken with my old Canon Powershot ELPH 300 HS. It's a really easy camera to keep in my bag or pocket. The zoom usually doesn't work anymore, but I prefer not to use it anyway.

Halloween 2021: 90s Party

Steven and I were invited to a 90s-themed Halloween Party. We were Daria, from "Daria" and Max Goof from "A Goofy Movie."

Our costumes were partly from our wardrobes, partly thrifted, and Steven's ears and gloves were a last-minute diy from things we already had. Steven's costume won a prize that evening. 

There were no Halloween parties last year, and this year still feels like everything has changed. But it was really great to spend some times with friends after such a long time.

Autumn Sketches

Hello! I just wanted to drop in to 1). share some of my autumnal sketchbook pages 2). share some of the autumnal handmade watercolors I've made and 3). the art challenge I created for this October and/or November. You are welcome to join in if you like! There are no rules. You can do any or all of these prompts at any time, but I would like it if you tagged me @annafranklinart on Instagram and used the hashtag #FlyingClubhouseChallenge21 so I can see your art. You can use the same hashtag on Tumblr or where ever else you like to post art.

Happy October!

Summer Sketches

I'm pretty late posting these, but I wanted to share some of the little sketches I made during the summer. Some of these were made in person and some were made afterward with photo reference. All these were colored with my handmade watercolors. Making, using, and selling my own watercolors has been hard work, but very rewarding. I'm very much still learning to paint with them, though. 

I've shifted my thinking about creating art in the last few years. I consider it a practice rather than a performance. Doing quick sketches like these help me move past perfectionism.
