Sunday Sketches - My Garden Angel

Yes my obsession with Angels continues. After my textured painting that I did for Paint Party Friday (Previous post) I decided to complete a set of 3 Angels in the same idea as my butterfly series as I wanted to create a new header and experiment further with the simple figurative style as well as texture. For this one I added a couple of new little elements and the figure came out a little more realistic. I really liked adding the flowers and vines. I've also been experimenting with using these images for a new line of glass pendants. So stay tuned! :0)
 These are a couple of sketches that I started out with.....
 I wanted to try a different colour combination to the last painting and create the feeling of the angel stepping out of a beautiful meadow.....
 I'm really getting addicted to these texture paintings!!!
After taking the boys to the museum this morning then out for a chinese lunch, then a walk around town to the bookshop we're all having a Sunday afternoon blob! The boys are reading and we're having a quiet coffee!! Bliss :0)
