Uncle Obama

My apologies to J.M. Flagg (the original artist), who designed the poster in 1917, but I couldn't resist.
I scanned in my original pencil drawing and painted this with my Corel Painter.

Simple Simon

Simple Simon met a pieman,
Going to the fair;
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
Let me taste your ware.

Says the pieman to Simple Simon,
Show me first your penny;
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
Indeed I have not any.

Simple Simon went a-fishing,
For to catch a whale;
All the water he had got,
Was in his mother's pail.

Simple Simon went to look
If plums grew on a thistle;
He pricked his fingers very much,
Which made poor Simon whistle
Water color

Wet On Wet Technique

I always wondered how certain artists could paint large areas without leaving brush marks so I took a class in this wet on wet water color technique and found out how it's done. I defineatly have more work to do but I like what happened here.
