Here is a quick little snippet of a dog portrait I'm working on. He's my pup Admiral Adama. I'll post again in the week to show the finished product. STAY TUNED!
Check out the new time-lapse of a quick drawing. Just trying to get back in the swing of drawing from real life whether it's photos or sitting there in the field. (Literally, because it's a cow... in a field... teehee, oh just keep scrolling) What critter would you want to see next? Requests are always appreciated!
Enjoy the video and enjoy your week!
Here is another time lapse of a watercolor painting. I used watercolor paint, pen, and pencil. Please enjoy and have a wonderful holiday!
Another video, yay!! Can't be grumpy hanging out with these 12 little critters! Created with watercolor and pens. Have a happy day! These Christmas critters will be available for cards in the shop!
Here is a detail of a piece I'm working on. He is a forest spirit. Also practicing pouring techniques for that gorgeous ethereal green background. Pretty happy with it. I should be finished with it sometime next week - I'm hoping. Hope you have a great week!
Yup, it seems I paint a cardinal every year. Here is 2016's version. It is on a ceramic ornament. I started selling them at the local farmers market and sold over half. I am going to be painting a few more for this year and put them up on my store shop. Keep your eyes peeled!
Here's another time-lapse of Chickadees being painted. Very fun to work on. The dots hurt a little bit - guess that shows how rusty I am at this. Hope you enjoy!
Here is a time lapse video of one of the designs for my Christmas cards. I know it's early but one cannot sit on their hands about these things. I hope you enjoy.
I'm continuing the Soul Impressions paintings I started last year. Here is a detail of the most current one I'm working on. I'm hoping it will be done soon and I can post for all the world to see. Hope you enjoy the sneak peak! Have a happy day!
Here is an art night past that I finished up. We played with pixel art for a while. It's definitely harder than it looks. :) But here are a couple I came up with. I definitely want to do more. Very fun! What can you come up with!??
I wish I could come up with more clever titles for these blog posts...
but I digress. Here is a close-up of a project I'm working on for the next few days. It'll be posted in full once it's done. Keep a look out!
Have a great week!
Here is a antiqued scarf holder I made for myself.
Step 1: Original Door. Beat it a little with sharp tools so the paint would pool in unique ways and give it a worn older look.
Step 2: Black Overlay. Covered sections in wax to make sanding easier.
Step 3: Colored Layer. Added any unique colors I wanted to show through. Covered different sections in wax to make sanding easier.
Step 4: White Overlay.
Step 5: Strategic Sanding. Sanded in easily worn areas to make it look natural. The wax on each layer helped those layers show up easier than attempting to sand it without it.
Step 6: Antique Glaze. To finish that antique look a coat of golden glaze was applied to corners and edges.
Step 7: Add the hooks and knobs. And add your scarves or necklaces or whatever you want!
And to see the finished product!!!! Drum role please..........
Jump to the LINK to see the finish. Yeah, ain't I a stinker.
Have a great one!
Here are first drafts of some invites and RSVP cards for a friend's wedding. Three different styles. One very formal, one really contemporary, and one kinda in between. There were certain things they asked for so hopefully I fulfilled their requests. Well. There they are. HOpe they like one of them.
