"Jack Russell Terrier" Pastel by Charlotte Yealey

This summer my husband and I went to watch a "dock dogs" event at a lake near our home where I photographed this little guy. He was not one of the dogs jumping off the dock but he was a spectator with his owner. I did this painting in one day, today, trying to get back to a painting a day.

"Horse Pasture" Pastel by Charlotte Yealey

Soft Pastels on Wallis Paper

For my second daily painting I chose a photo from my landscape photo reference file of a pasture. I did not include the fence on the photo and I added a mare and her foal from another
reference photo. The sky was blue with no clouds but I added some fluffy ones for a more interesting painting. I completed this is 2-1/2 hours and I feel I over worked it a bit. I don't feel the baby horse is believable.

My Grandma Graphite Drawing by Charlotte Yealey

Graphite Pencil Drawing
I thought I would try a painting or drawing a day so I thought I would start with drawing from an old photo of my grandma that I have been wanting to do. Working on this off and on through out the day, it took me about 4 hours to do this. I'm not sure if I will be able to do this every day with my schedule and a few commissions I have to do but it is worth a try. I see work that I still need to do on this drawing but then it would not be a drawing a day.

"Tiger and Cub" Watercolor Painting by Charlotte Yealey

A friend of mine in Utah let me use her photo of these tigers that she took. I loved this shot of the mother and her cub-just had to paint it.
