hello lovely people...
eyes, eyes, and more eyes. ;-)
a few things on the go this week...
see what happens when i slow down with the blogging?
It's actually hard for me sometimes
not to post ever day. :-)
So here we go!
a painting i began recently - for a friend.
Still at the very early stages.
And this little baby i did last night.
This was so much fun to do.
I had forgotten how much i loved illustrating
I'm not sure whether the little girl is playing in the waves,
It's like that feeling
of just keeping our head above the water sometimes.
I bought this nice, thick, smooth white paper
supposedly for dry medium only.
I'll paint on toilet paper if i have to
so anything goes.
i just knew i would add
acrylics or watercolor to this one.
i've never worked with COPIC markers,
but i'm guessing they would've worked well
for something like this.
The paper absorbed the liquid acrylics
better than i thought it would
and it was thick enough
not to buckle the paper much at all.
a few colors and added white bubbles,
and there you have it.
i ended up doing her hair with brush markers
and i don't like it so much,
but it's done, so no regrets.
Next time, i'll know better.
the little curious fish...
caught up in the waves of excitement. ;-)
I wanted her face a little softer than the rest
so i used colored crayons.
The coloring was so smooth on this paper...
i can't wait to do another one.
Maybe i'll do a little series?
Little girls at the beach.
By the way, i'm looking at doing a giveaway soon...
I'm not sure how it all works
to make sure it's a legitimate winner
but i'll be letting you know when it all comes together.
i may end up doing something like this illustration
The winner would get an original from moi,
hopefully to be hung on their own wall,
to make them smile when they see it,
and not sold at an auction somewhere in Minnesota
for like a gazillion dollars.
A girl can dream, right?
Thank you all so much for visiting and commenting here...
It really makes my heart happy.
