Purple lady cold day! :0) - Sunday Sketches!

Hi guys well it's the time of year I start to get jealous of all  your spring time talk!!! I feel like we are hurtling towards winter at the moment and it's been a really cold day today so stayed indoors and did some painting!

First up is a painting I did of this purple haired lady! I wish I could pull off a purple hair do ;0)
Next up is a design I made for a mural at the school where I'm going to be working, just waiting for the paperwork to come back so I can start which should hopefully be this week. This mural is for the preschool, they have asked me to paint over an existing tree. I decided to keep a tree as the focal point because the teachers use it throughout the year to pin the childrens work to such as caterpillars and butterflies they made in craft, flowers, blossoms in spring time and Autumn leaves at this time of the year (being Autumn down under). I made my tree a lot more whimsical and added in a background to give it more character but tried to stay simple at the same time. Can't wait to start it! :0)
Hope you've all had a great weekend and I look forward to seeing what you've been up to! :0)

such a sweet piece for a mural, full of happiness. your lady is lovely too.
our spring is cold and wet and only a few flowers have begun to show their sweet faces.... Summer is the prettiest time here in NW Montana.

Your purple haired lady looks very stylish with her high cheek bones and dark, full lips. She looks like an edgy fashion model from the 80s! :-)

Love the fun mural design, too! What a great idea to have art from the kids included throughout the year! Be sure to post a pic of the wall once it's finished!
