Paint Party Friday/Sunday Sketches

Hi guys,

Last week I finally discovered that I'm able to upload my pics again so in my previous post you can see my work from January that I shared with 'Sunday Sketches'. I have so much to share that I thought I'd now share my February work with you guys. I've been doing lots of new paintings this month, watercolour, acrylic and oils! I just can't stop! :0)

This first piece is done with mostly watercolour but I did use a little bit of acrylic on top (white and yellow speckles). I was playing around with creating a soft focus background then having the details mainly in the face. I wanted her to blend in with background a bit!

 This second piece is completely in watercolour. I just really liked her pose and I was working on getting my watercolours as bright and bold as possible.
 With these sketches I wanted to practice different emotions in my pieces. The one above is called 'Disappointed' and I really love how her eyes turned out :0)
 The coloured pencil sketch below was a challenge for me as she has a very animated face.
 This one was a doodle I did on the couch in front of the tele just yesterday....hmmmmmm it was raining so perhaps I was feeling trapped?
 This one is another new idea for a design for one of my tote bags :0)
Last but not least is a new canvas. I haven't painted in acrylic or oils on canvas for a long time and had the urge to last week.

Wow lots of eye candy! I think those eyes in "disappointed" are amazing. Love that rainbow hair and the animated expression girl too. Happy PPF!

Ah so beautifully done faces, my favorite is "disappointed" but the smiling face (so difficult to do!) is fantastic, too, as is the one with closed eyes and rainbow hair! Love how you have captured the emotions! <3

Your 1st colored pencil sketch looks like what's-her-butt from Wizard of Oz!! :) I think that one and the one you're thinking for a tote looks fantastic!
