Sunday Sketches!

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I've been drawing heaps but not able to post with lots of visitors and parties happening. Things are calming down a bit now so i thought I'd share my new pieces with you all at Sunday Sketches.

I was spoiled rotten for Christmas and was given lots of new goodies. A whole new heap of coloured pencils as well as blending sticks, woodless graphite pencils etc so I've been doing a bit of experimenting.
These first 3 drawings were done just before Christmas, I wanted to experiment with different skin tones and experiment with space :0)


This next picture was my first experiment with my new skin tone pencils. I'm now able to create better skin tones with my new pencils :0)

I'm really happy with her skin tone :0)

Next up is a quick sketch I did with my new woodless graphite pencils and blending sticks. I'd never used blending sticks before so really loved playing around with depth and shade with this one.  :0)

Last but not least is a piece I did yesterday. I felt like drawing a Geisha :0)

I had fun with this one and worked in a bigger size this time A3.

Oh one last thing I forgot to share is a commission I worked on a while ago before Christmas.

Sorry for the long post I didn't realise just how much I hadn't shared with you all :0)

I wish you all a happy and safe New Years and look forward to seeing all your new creations in 2013 :0) x

Paint party Friday and Sunday Sketches

Well my obsession with coloured pencils continue, I know these pieces aren't paintings but I really wanted to share with you what I've been working on. I'm so passionate and excited about perfecting my portrait work I don't think I've been this driven artistically in a very long time. It's a great feeling.

 'Funky Fairy'

 'The Mermaid'

Experimenting with background and profile for this one.


 'Fire starter'

This one remains without a title but I was experimenting with skin tone and use of space.


I've also been experimenting with my artwork and using it in otherways. I've become so addicted to Vistaprint! I love seeing my designs on new things and the bags especially have become very popular. I have a few left in my etsy shop.

I've been designing new business cards, and even tried using my design on this mug which I love!

I now  have limited edition postcard style prints of two of my ladies available. Will be adding them to my shop very soon.

This is a close up of 'Rainbow' printed on my new cotton tote bags! Love how the colours came up!

 These bags are so cute and have proven to be very popular in my shop, only have a few left! :0)
Sorry for such a long post today but I am really excited to share with you what I've been working on! :0) I've also finished my commission which I will be able to share with you after Christmas and I've been really busy finishing building and painting sets for the school concert next week. I'm hoping to get some nice pics of my pieces on stage for you to share! :0)

Looking forward to catching up. :0)
