Practicing observational drawing. Continuous contour line drawing of a man I do not know. I bet he has some amusing stories.

My completed 100 day project all in one place. 4"x4" - watercolor
I’m 32 days into a 100 day project of little paintings to reclaim moments of creative joy with no strings attached – a daily reminder of what made me want to be an “artist” in the first place. I’m posting daily on my Instagram account @stephdillondesign
Designed some new cards expressing my current outlook
My contribution to a draw Cloudia #dtiys challenge from Crocodile Jackson on Instagram.
Hummingbirds are my favorite. Whenever I see one of these little “birds of joy” everything else like worry, stress, and getting somewhere on time
With ample hammock potential.
When I grow up I want to draw pictures that make people smile. -Stephanie
My painted interpretation of a large quilt my grandma made and stitched by hand decades ago using upcycled shirts. It’s gotten a lot of use and is showing the wear and tear that a well loved quilt will show on a long enough timeline. Still, I can’t bring myself to put it away for long. While a piece of me thinks I should keep it safe and preserved, my grandma is a practical woman that likes knowing something she made is getting good use. A sentiment I can appreciate. And so, maybe I can extend it’s life through watercolor.
