A return to digital art

When watching a movie or listening to a lecture, I like to have something to do with my hands.  Someone once told me to take up knitting so I’d be doing something useful.  But I’m dreadful with those needles.  So, instead, I do art!

Mostly, I draw and doodle in my sketchbook.  Lately, I’ve been teaching myself water colors.  A few years ago, I got a Wacom tablet and learned how to make digital art.  I have a DeviantArt account where I post things, but I often don’t have the drive or patience do more than sketch in Photoshop.

Last week, though, I managed to create my first digital painting in over a year!  I thought I’d share it with you.


Who is this lovely lady?  My muse goes by the name Claire Beauchamp, heroine of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series.  I recently read the first two books and have been watching the t.v. show, so Claire was fresh in my mind.

I’m thinking about regularly posting photos of my drawings and doodles on here.  Would you like more art?  Or should I just stick to writing?
