Recent drawings 2015

Posted in Misc. Art Works on June 19, 2015 by lindsayjanetroberts

I have been practicing some techniques in drawing to pass on to my students. One is realism in graphite, a cactus in pre-bloom. Another is a colored pencil rendering of a firey sunrise view from my home using colored pencil, graphite and a heated surface while working in the colored pencil (makes for interesting blending of colors. I am not sure the photo does it justice. The other is an ink drawing with colored pencil for accents. This my husband calls my high school days style. I call it my Zentangle. Better yet, I just call it Keeper since it is our cat Keeper. Below Keeper is another Zentangle I call Fuzzy or grumpy bird. Fuzzy is a Say’s Phoebe that hatched in our back yard. I took a photo of him in his youth, thus the fuzzy head. He was very cute and a slow flight learner so he stuck around for awhile. He was fun to watch and very tame.cactus bright sunrise keeperFuzzy

One day was out of the water and fishing on a boat. Went out at least 10+ miles from shore. Not sure about the distance except to say we got out of site of any land. No keepers this trip. It was all catch and release and use on my trusty Nikon Point and shoot. gone fishing maco shark copy ricks fish copy rogers fish 1 copy

First Photos taken with my new Intova Sports HD II

Posted in Photography Fun on April 26, 2015 by lindsayjanetroberts

I know it is for underwater. But I had to figure it out on a dry run. Interesting effect with the wide angle lens. Some got grainy becasue I did not have the settings correct. But a little photoshop fun made for an interesting photo.

Decorative Ceramic Space Heater 2015

Posted in Misc. Art Works on April 19, 2015 by lindsayjanetroberts

I had used ceramic flower pots in consecutive sizes a bread pan and these candles to heat a small space before. Since I teach ceramics I thought I would try making something as functional but with a different look. It works and now my kids have another project to add to their list.
