Portrait Painting

Portrait painting is quite a skill! So is being able to sit still for a portrait painting. Because you could be spending that time eating snacks, y'know?


Fall Harvest Coloring Pages

I’m still getting pumpkin everything while I still can (including pumpkin scones). During some of our fall-themed activities, we visited a local farmer’s market that had so so so SO many gourds. Gourds are pretty weird looking, which made them excellent fodder for a new Princess Pups coloring page! Corgi Pup is trying to balance a wee pumpkin on her nose while Scruffy Pup and TeaCup pup examine other gourds!

Goosebump gourds, long gourds, small gourds…

The farmer’s market also had all sorts of snacks, including the delightful candy apples! I thought it only right that Fluff Pup and Pug Pup got to enjoy candy apples on the other coloring page. Pug Pup has even been known to make candy apples in the past…

Extra sprinkles on all candy apples, please!

You can find these and other fall and non-fall related coloring pages over in the coloring pages section! For this month’s time lapse, here’s the many directions that the gourds coloring page took! The cinderella pumpking that Corgi Pup is balancing on had to be just the right size.

Pumpkin Coloring Pals!

It’s October and pumpkins galore! We’ve got our piles of Halloween decorations out and I’ve already had too many pumpkin scones (and intend to have more). This month for my coloring pages, I’ve got two pumpkiny, Jack-o’-lantern themed coloring pages for you to enjoy while drinking your favorite autumn drink.

In the first page, Teacup Pup is putting the finishing touches on her Jack-o’-lantern, which is bigger than she is! She’s just gotta figure out how to get that candle inside before she tumbles off…

For this month’s other page, I drew Jack-o’-lantern versions of all the pups! This one was a bit of a challenge but a lot of fun. I got a bit creative for the pups with fluffy ears and used vines and leaves as part of their design! And Corgi Pup is a lumpy gourd to get closer to her head shape.

Look at all the Pup-kins!

Since the pups as Halloween decorations was so different, it’s this month’s timelapse! I made several changes on the fly when I was inking it, see if you can spot them. 🙂 Be sure to check the Coloring Pages section for these pages plus other Halloweenie coloring pages from Halloweens past!

Birthday Month Means Cakes to Color!

It’s my birthday month and as I’ve done once it the past, I made some fresh coloring pages with the Princess Pups enjoying birthday baked goodies!

Our house is currently going through a kitchen remodel that leaves us with no sink, so birthday cake for this year will be acquired from a local bakery instead of making at home. But the pups don’t have a kitchen remodel which gives Fluff Pup, Corgi Pup and Scruffy Pup the room to make and decorate a three-level cake! (Scruffy Pup is helping by testing the frosting, y’know?)

Fluff Pup and Corgi Pup are adding frosting using frosting tubes while sitting on the table as Scruffy Pup uses a toe from her front paw to sneak some frosting to eat.
It’s important to wear proper birthday hats while decorating birthday cakes!

Meanwhile, as TeaCup Pup was making some Birthday Cupcakes, it seems that Pug Pup got stuck in a giant cupcake? At that point, is it still a cupcake or a very round and domed cake? Pug Pup has also exchanged having a party hat for a very large strawberry!

As a timelapse for this month, here’s the cake decorating page! You can see how indecisive I was about where to put Fluff Pup as she helps decorate a giant 3 layer cake with Corgi Pup – I originally thought it would make sense if she was behind the cake, but then that seemed too awkward to me. And during the inks, I decided the cake needed a frosting bow instead of a flower one. I don’t know how to make either of these on a real cake, but can draw them for sure!

Safari Animal Pals Coloring!

It’s been too hot where I live and I also visited a lot of animals recently at various places! It made me think of how fun it would be for the Princess Pups to go on a safari adventure, which made for a great theme for this month’s coloring pages! Plus, it meant I got to draw the pups in safari vests and hats!

In this month’s first coloring page, TeaCup Pup, Scruffy Pup, and Corgi Pup are visiting a baby giraffe! They also are feeding it, which I got to do with my kiddo a few weeks ago at our zoo in St. Louis! (The name of one of the giraffes we fed was Honey, she was so cute!) Corgi Pup is quite astounded at the height of the baby giraffe that TeaCup Pup and Scruffy Pup are feeding a giant lettuce leaf.

Another animal event I had recently was feeding parakeets, which lead to drawing Fluff Pup and Pug Pup visiting various birdies that may or may not be parakeets? I kinda…winged it a bit on the bird anatomy (see what I did there?) While Fluff Pup is happy to stay on the ground and observe with binoculars, Pug Pup seems to be wanting to get extra close!

Pug Pup might make that branch break if she’s not careful!

Here’s a timelapse for the pups and the baby giraffe coloring page. I found myself adjusting the legs of the giraffe a few times over! If you need more coloring pages, be sure to visit the Coloring Pages section to grab previous sheets!
