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.


'Windswept'


 'Fire starter'


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


'Rainbow'.

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)
