New year!

I am trying to do another prompt based daily challenge. I’ve started and stopped these in the past but I am hoping that doing this in Procreate will be helpful. The first week was successful – I did 3 out of 3 prompts (orange, banana and pear). I tend to be up early, so this will be my time that I plan to devote to doing the art. (so much better than watching the news)

The prompts come from Bardot Brush’s Making Art Everyday (MAE). I really like Jennifer and have found her site to be a great place to learn this Procreate thing! Join in if you are interested! I am finding this community very supportive and inspiring!

This month will focus on Foods. This current week will include – carrots, peas, watermelon, radish, tomato, berries and asparagus.

maneki neko

The maneki neko or lucky cat are common figurines/statues that symbolize good luck. The raised paw is a gesture of beckoning. According to Wikipedia, “a statue with the left paw raised is to get more customers, while the right paw raised is to get more money. Hence it is also said that the one with left paw is for business and the right is for home.”

I used the Kunayi brush in Procreate to mimic the Sumi-e style I was also going for a more simplistic design.

I might make this into a sticker. Let me know if you’d be interested in getting one!!

Iconic Pleasanton decoration

I created this in Procreate – if you live or work in Pleasanton, CA, you might be familiar with these arches. During the holiday season, it get bedazzled with this mirror wreath and garland. I love it! It makes stoplights more interesting. Does your hometown have iconic decorations?

Hello Corgeous

I love me a good pun! Having fun in Procreate painting cute doggies! I might make this into a card. Any corgi fans out there?

I love their smile! I am excited to start watching the new season of the Crown.
