No Thanks, I’ll have coffee 🍵 My daughter loves this playtime teapot, what she didn’t love was me “borrowing” it for a few days. Share your toys, even with grown-ups I said. After I finished the painting, we discussed the concept of sharing. We drank a great quantity of tea and were tight now, but boy do I have to pee... #DigitalPleinAir | 1HR | CorelPainter | Wacom Stylus #Painting #colour #Purple #Tea #Teatime #Pink #Teal #SpotofTea #Playtime #Thirsty #EnglishTea #Cute #corelpainter #Art #Illustration #ArtofJeffEpp #jeffepp #Aqua #EarlGrey #stilllife #fun #artistsoninstagram #instaart #artwork #light #pleinair #StillLife

My Way or the Queens way #DigitalPleinAir | 1HR | #Procreate | #Wacom Stylus Found on Queens Ave in Leamington. I was fortunate enough to sit in a public parking spot for this quick paint. It’s always a weird feeling when I'm in my car starring at someone’s house for an hour, even though I'm painting I'm sure it gives off the wrong vibe. I've thought about investing in a car decal that says “Information Technologist for Urban Exteriors - Site Specialist” decorate that with Times New Roman & Arial Rounded, add a globe icon with arrows and I’m as good as camouflaged. #Painting #colour #parking #shadows #red #green #oldart #LeamingtonON #EssexON #house #ipad #Art #Illustration #ArtofJeffEpp #jeffepp #digitalPleinAir #Fun #ArtistsonInstagram #instaart #artwork #streetview #light #pleinair #daytime #mondaymemories

🍾 Bottle & Glass 1hr | #corelpainter | Wacom tablet I recently watched an inspiring video 📺 on painting glass. It looked really easy, I was mistaken. It’s the edges that proved difficult. I added in the metal container because I like shiny stuff. I also like the stuff inside the green bottle too.🍷🍷 #Painting #colour #wine #vino #Green #Shiny #clear #Vase #Red #Stilllife #Bottles #winebottle  #metal #glass #Art #Illustration #ArtofJeffEpp #jeffepp #digitalPleinAir #stilllife #fun #artistsoninstagram #instaart #artwork #light #pleinair #natural

Bathtime Brawl #DigitalPleinAir | #CorelPainter | #Wacom Stylus Playtime can stir all sorts of emotions, jealousy in particular.

Green & Gold ➡Swipe to see the value study and photo ref. Visually, I really liked how the green looked next to the gold. This was a 1hr study done with corel painter.

Son of a Nutcracker According to German tradition, the Nutcracker doll is supposed to bring good luck and scare away bad spirits. I hope 2018 gets a good dose of that. I think he seems a bit tired from 2017 if you ask me.

SHINY OBJECT SYNDROME (SOS) 1hr | Corel Painter | Wacom tablet I’ve seen quite a few people paint Christmas decorations. Bright, shiny, metallic ornaments...what’s not to like. So in the spirit of the season I figured I would give it the ol’ College try... Also, in the spirit of Bob Ross I made sure this ornament had a little friend too. I would change a few things, but overall this will most likely be part of a duo or trio... #Painting #colour #Christmas #Ornaments #Blue #Shiny #Bright #Two #Scallop #Metallic #SOS #Season #Falalalalala #LimeGreen #trinkets #corelpainter #Art #Illustration #ArtofJeffEpp #jeffepp #digitalPleinAir #stilllife #fun #artistsoninstagram #instaart #artwork #light #pleinair #natural #StillLife

Mill Street Yellow #DigitalPleinAir | 1HR | #Procreate | #Wacom Stylus I stopped to paint this image when I noticed the yellow siding in shadow was green, but quite desaturated. I discovered a bit more about ambient lighting and what it does to shadows with this piece. It’s never easy painting images like this in your car, especially when your parked in the same spot for over an hour. People can get the wrong idea. Perhaps I need a sticker for my vehicle that says “Service Technician” it probably make them feel more at ease. #Painting #colour #Sunlight #Yellow #Green #siding #BlueTruck #Ambient #Mill #DownOnTheStreet #technician #service #ipad #Art #Illustration #ArtofJeffEpp #jeffepp #digitalPleinAir #Fun #ArtistsonInstagram #instaart #artwork #streetview #light #pleinair #Saturday

🍵🍵🍵COFFEE MAYHEM 🍵🍵🍵 1hr | Photoshop | Wacom tablet While I wouldn’t say I’m a connoisseur of coffee, I will say I like a particular taste... so I guess that makes me an aficionado. My morning cup is a Medium Roast bean prepared in a French press, if I’m running late it’s McCafe all the way. My mid-day pick me up is an espresso poured over ice with water. It’s called an Americano, but I’m Canadian, so I guess that makes it a Canadiano? I should order it that way the next time I’m in Starbucks and see what happens. #Painting #colour #coffee #java #PC #Starbucks #McCafe #16 #Grande #PresidentsChoice #Coffeelove #MorningCup #espresso #FrenchPress #Art #Illustration #ArtofJeffEpp #jeffepp #digitalPleinAir #stilllife #fun #artistsoninstagram #instaart #artwork #red #light #pleinair #natural #StillLife

WHITE VELVET... if you please 1hr | Photoshop | Wacom tablet This is my painting of paint... (insert emoji crickets) I really wanted to create something since I had a window of opportunity to paint uninterrupted. Sometimes the best still life’s are not “pre-arranged” but found in and around the house.

Annabelle’s Sister🖌 This is a 1hr study I did on my iPad. Painted with #Procreate and a #wacom stylus. #Tip... Generally the sun’s colour ranges from reddish orange at sunrise then white during midday then back to reddish orange at sunset.

TRUAX CONSTRUCTION Keeping with the theme of #HomeImprovement, here is a 1hr study I did on my iPad. Painted with #Procreate and a #wacom stylus. #Tip...

Sunday Sundae There’s just something about that musical jingle ice cream trucks play. Every grown adult and kid alike can recognize that sound. In an instant we become Olympic sprinters jumping over children, toys, small white picket fences. We flail our arms as if we’re stranded on a desert island, and then we realize...we forgot the money. With what little breathe we have left we scream “get my wallet” Panting at this point, we manage to flag the truck down. Damnit, we earned that treat! What’s your favourite treat from the truck?

“Thorncrest” 1hr Digital Plein Air paint done on my iPad. The left side of the house was playing tricks on me. Usually it’s warm light, cool shadows... but, the house next door was all red so some of the bounce light was warming the left side. Silly shadows, tricks are for kids!

“I hate everyone that ever had a pony growing up - JS ” For the record I have never seen an episode of MLP nor do I support bronies and the like...but, I have seen every episode of Seinfeld.

“Breathless” Don’t smoke Kids! It will leave you breathless. This is not a PSA. Just a warm up sketch :) TIP: If you use stripes or patterns to define your forms/masses, it will feel more three dimensional and add loads of depth. #drawing #pencil #smoking #breathless #character #design #characterdesign #QuickSketch #Art #lineart #newsprint #opera #shapes #notover #study #learning #Illustration #ArtofJeffEpp #jeffepp #artistsoninstagram #instaart #artwork #depth #2d #tip

“Quick Gesture” 3 Mins I prefer short quick #sketches over long ones. The way I see it, you can get 15-20 quick sketches in by the time you do 1 or 2 long ones. Which in turn equals more drawing, plus it builds speed. #tip #drawing #charcoal #life #lifedrawing #gesture #QuickSketch #Art #lineart #newsprint #drawingfromLife #study #learning #Illustration #ArtofJeffEpp #jeffepp #artistsoninstagram #instaart #artwork

“Captain McWinky the Rapscallion Racer” I needed a “contact me” image for my website (link in bio). Instead of an antique phone which would have been my first choice. I opted for the toy car phone. Retro in it’s own sense, and a timeless classic. Some creative liberties were taken... Mainly the spoiler, for fuel efficiency. #Pai#ting #col#colour #colour #toy # carphone #retro #LetsChat #ToofastTooFurious #racer #notCars2 #notToyStory #Winner #SmoothOperator #Art #Illustration #ArtofJeffEpp #jeffepp #digitalPleinAir #stilllife #fun #artistsoninstagram #instaart #artwork

The dreaded first post... what to do??? I felt the same fear I do when I stare at a blank page. I really wanted to share an image of me drawing when I was wee child. Sure it would have been as cute as puppies and popcorn. But since I was the baby in the bunch, there weren’t as many photos taken of me. All the youngest kids out there can attest to that! Still love you Mom. So I thought it would have been good to introduce my brand. How I developed my icon, and the logo I’ll be using to showcase my paintings, character designs, life drawing...etc #brand #hello #firstpost #ArtofJeffEpp #artistsoninstagram #instaart #moretocome #gray #gold #me #thatsmyhand #jeffepp #hashtag
