Fairy Child Unaware

 

Hello Friends!

Last night I decided to draw a little boy fairy in almost the same pose as my last post. He is caught unaware of the mischevious tree and teardrop fairy behind him, though. What are they going to do, I wonder! What do you think? Let me know in the comments. This could be fun!

Little Girl in Mixed Media

 

Hello Friends!

I can hardly believe that this is Week #27 of Let’sfaceit2020 already! Our teacher this week was Maria Pace-Wynters again whom I love! She is a wonderful mixed media artist!

The picture she provided for us is of her daughter taken when she was seven. She is so cute! I did her hair a little differently and I didn’t use all the same colors Maria used. I wanted to brighten it up so I used my yellow acrylic ink. I used India ink for the outline and acrylic inks for the rest. And I added the washi tape in the corners for some contrast. I created this one on 9×12″ Bristol smooth surface paper. And I also noticed I drew her an extra finger on her right hand! Ha ha!

This project rekindled my love for mixed media. So who knows what I may do next!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

 

Fantasy Characters in Pencil

 

Captain Hook

 

Rumplestiltskin

Hello Friends!

I can’t believe it is the 4th of July already! I hope if you are celebrating, you stay safe and healthy!

I have been watching the show “Once Upon a Time” through Netflix the last couple of months. And my two favorite characters are Captain Hook and Rumplestiltskin. One might think they are both villains, but only Rumplestiltskin is. Captain Hook has his moments, but I think he becomes a lovable and complex character in the show.

What I love about watching this is that I never know what to expect, and I never know what character from fairytales is going to show up. I also never know right away whether a character is going to be a hero or a villian! I love the surprising twists and turns in the storytelling!

We can’t do any streaming on Netflix where we are out in the boonies. So mailing and waiting for discs makes watching any series take quite a while! But that’s okay. I’m not in a hurry!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

Portrait in Watercolor and Pen

 

Hello Friends!

I can hardly believe I am half done with this year long portrait drawing and painting class! This week is number 26! Our instructor this week is Angela Kennedy again. She draws and paints such cute and whimsical portraits!

She painted in watercolors this time. Then she used a white watercolor for the white on the dress and stockings. I don’t have white watercolor, so I used white gouache on the layers of the dress, but I only have a little bit. So then I used white acrylics to paint the stripes on the stockings. This was a fun painting to do. I like Angela’s style.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

 

Woman in Brush Pens

Hello Friends!

I went crazy with this portrait. The instructor in my Let’sfaceit#2020 class was Jennifer Bonneteau for Week #25. She is the same instructor that I did my Frida Kahlo portrait in acrylics with.

However, I haven’t watched her videos for this one yet. She gave us the photo in black and white and a picture of her finished painting in acrylics. But I decided to draw mine in pencil on Bristol paper and use my Arteza Brush Pens to go a little crazy with the colors! It was a lot of fun, but drawing this pose was really challenging! I do plan to do this again on canvas in acrylics at some point. I think I may have signed up for too many free classes right now! But as I have said before, I just work at my own pace anyway!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

 

 

Swirling Mermaids in Pencil

 

Hello Friends!

Recently I purchased a book called “Mermaid Wisdom” by Brenda Rosen. It is a used book, and because of the condition it arrived in, my complaint to the company made it become a FREE book. It absolutely reeked of such a strong mildew smell that I couldn’t read it until now! I received it weeks ago. Strangely, though, the book’s pages have no sign of mold anywhere.

Anyway, the reason I bought it is because I wanted to learn about the history of mermaid legends. Katrina Koltes is going to be working on a new workshop at some point focusing on mermaids which everyone in the fairy workshop class is really excited about! So I thought I would start learning about them now. And of course, that inspired me to try to draw them. They are not easy to draw by any means either!

I hope everyone had a good and healthy week in your part of the world! We are doing well here in California.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug!  😀

 

“Full Moon Goddess” Watercolor

 

Hello Friends!

Last night I painted this watercolor after viewing a short workshop called “Full Moon Goddess – A Watercolor Workshop” by Katrina Koltes.

I really enjoyed painting this and adding the gold moon and half moon tattoo on her neck. Those were my design. I did not do my painting like Katrina’s at all. Hers is completely different. But I especially like how she left her eyes unfinished so they would look like full moons. I added a little gold around mine.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

 

 

Fairies in Pencil

Hello Friends!

This is a pencil drawing I did in my sketchbook the other night. I love drawing simple scenes. I especially liked adding the butterflies and hummingbirds, too!

I have some other watercolors I want to start from a couple of mini workshops by Katrina Koltes. Her spirit has awakened my imagination and helped me enjoy just drawing for fun in my leisure. You can find her classes here. https://katrinakoltes.com/

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

 

Elves of Light in Watercolor

 

Hello Friends!

Over the last couple of days I drew and painted this. This was in the fairy class as one of our last assignments that Katrina calls “The Elves of Light.”

I really enjoyed working on this one! It was very relaxing and fun. I am not sure what I am going to do next.

I hope everyone has had a good week and you are all staying well.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

 

Portrait in Watercolor

 

Hello Friends!

This is a small watercolor I did for this week’s lesson, Week #24 with Pauline Agnew, for Let’sFaceIt2020.

This one didn’t take long, but this is my second attempt which turned out much better than my first!

It is on a 5×7″ sheet of watercolor paper. The three colors I used are: L’Aquarelle Paynes Gray and Daniel Smith’s “Moonglow” and “Quinacridone Coral.”

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀
