Dragonfly Girl




Hi everyone well it's been nearly a week between posts. I've just been so busy this week with all sorts of things but I have been working on this painting as well as lots of other ideas for upcoming projects.
After some conversations with a lovely blogfriend last week I was reminded of my love for dragonflies so I thought I would try to incorporate some into this piece. As you can tell I really love painting whimsical pretty art but I would like to branch out into others and also perhaps start painting animals etc and not just people, I've got all these ideas in my head and I'm fast running out of time before our big trip so perhaps I'll sketch them down on the plane as I'm taking a sketch book with me. I think it might do me some good to take myself away from my paint and canvas' and to just sketch for a while, I can't help painting as i just really love it! I'm thinking of putting this one in my etsy shop once it's been varnished!
