Paint Party Friday and Sunday Sketches, continuing with pencil!

Hi guys, well what a week it's been. I've not been that well. I've had some sort of bad allergic reaction to a facemask that I used last week so have felt like the elephant woman all week. Taking antihystamines which really knocked me around and trying not to rip my face off. I'm not sure what is going on with me at the moment I seem to be developing allergies and hayfever which I've never had before. I've been hearing that this spring season is really bad this year. So can't wait til that passes.

I did however manage to continue with my pencil drawings and have been experimenting with space, and composition as well as challenging myself with teeth and hands.

So here are my pieces for this week:

First up I tried to challenge myself with this pose which had a partially opened mouth as well as some hands. I'm really happy with how she came out. :0)

Her hair reminds me of flames in this one! :0) I really enjoyed working on this hair! Love the colour combo!

With these last two pieces I was experimenting with the use of space and composition! I really enjoyed working on them both.

The last one I named 'Mother Nature'.....

I'm also excited to be able to share with you some new products I'm working on. I received these in the post yesterday. I've been checking out a printing website and have started experimenting with using my art work in different ways. These are the first of my new t-shirts. If you are interested in purchasing a t-shirt like this or would like to see another of my designs on a shirt then just let me know through my blog or you can email me through facebook :0) I'm very excited about where this new line of artwork is taking me :0)




Looking forward to seeing what you've all been up to this week!
