I've been so busy with trying new things the last couple of weeks and have gone back to watercolour. I did try to post last week but was having trouble yet again with using my blog. So frustrating but I have it working again.
So this week I wanted to share my latest paintings with you:
So after that one I decided to revisit my 'Disappointed' sketch that I showed you last post. I re-drew it then painted the detail on the face. I took a massive plunge ( for me) and started to do the drippy hair again, and took a big chance when I guided the drips down the face. It was quite liberating heheheh.
I have to admit it's not often that I fall in love with one of my own paintings but I really love this one. It represents taking a chance and stepping outside of my comfort zone as well as the feelings I had when I originally drew the sketch :0)
Next up I did this green lady who I decided to put some words to. It's funny how putting some words to a picture can completely change the feel or meaning.
This one I called 'Take my breath away'.....
"Life is not measured by the number of breathes we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” — Maya Angelou
I really liked the quote with the picture.
The last painting I wanted to share with you I did a couple of weeks ago. I saw a photo of a bloggy friends beautiful daughter and was inspired to paint her using my new found obsession of 'drippy painting' :0)
I've also been playing around with getting some of these designs printed onto bags and even a t-shirt for myself :0)
Looking forward to catching up with you all and sorry for my absence! :0)
