I set aside the watercolors today and reached for my acrylic paint. I was in a floral kind of mood, but I also knew that I am waaayyy behind in my 29 Faces in September. What to do? How about a face peeking out from behind the flowers? She’s partially hidden, but I think she […]
Yes, another watercolor face today. I had to do one more, because yesterday’s was so enjoyable for me to paint. I was definitely much more relaxed while painting this one. She marks the half way point in Thirty Paintings in 30 Days and my ninth face for 29 Faces in September 2014. Another Face by […]
So far, so good! I’m ten for ten! I am, however, a little behind in my 29 Faces, so today’s painting, I knew had to be a face. I used another advertising magnet as my canvas. As before, I applied a layer of gesso first and then got out my acrylics and painted this cute […]
Imagine Possibility Mixed Media using watercolor, watercolor pencils, acrylic and ink on 4×6 140 lb cold press watercolor paper. (the photograph doesn’t do it justice.. it’s so much prettier with so many more layers of color and shading than you can see here) Thirty Paintings in 30 Days – Day 6
Today I’d love to show you two new little aceos/atcs that I did for art swaps. They’ve been sent and received by their new owners, so I’m not ruining any surprises. This first one, done with ink and colored pencils, was for an Alice in Wonderland theme. There had to be one red heart in […]
“Pleasure is always derived from something outside you, whereas joy arises from within.” ~ Eckhart Tolle Inner Joy done with Inks, Faber Castell Gel sticks, Acrylic and Collage on 9×12 water color paper.
My theme this past week seemed to have been centered on farms and freshness, thanks to Junelle’s Farmers Market Yum and Art Workshop. This is the last week for it and I am slowly working through it and savoring every project. I love it! The nice thing about it is even though this initial workshop […]
This week, I did two pieces of art for Summer of Color The colors for Week 5 are Royal Blue and Red and a smudge, splash or pop of Light Blue. The first is this girl wrapped up in Red Ribbons. She was done with ink, white acrylic and colored pencils. The second piece started […]
A little sketch which I’ll work more on. She has no name yet. I’m drawing a blank as to what to call her. Do you have any suggestions? Linking to: Friday Sketches
Over the weekend I took part in Ellen Million Graphics Sketch Fest #51. I had hoped to have more time to spend, but as the garden and outdoor chores come first, I only had an hour and only time for one sketch. I chose the prompt “Zentangled Anything” by Tiffany Guin and came up with […]
My love for fantasy, fairies and elves made me sketch this fairy tale princess. Ink, acrylic and Faber Castell gel sticks on 5 x 7 mixed media paper. I call her ‘Blue Princess’ because of the obvious amount of blue I used and because she looks a little melancholy.
To the dreamer, everything is possible. This piece was inspired by our first true spring day with blue skies and little fluffy clouds. The message is so fitting right now, as I am up to my elbows in seeds and planting and organising for our other projects here at home and still trying to practice […]
