I’m painting baby animals for a nursery today. This is so rough 🙂 But I love the soulful eyes of the giraffe!
I feel like the title is explanation enough 😉
I love all of the fancy holiday outfits that arise this time of year! I often think of how impractical some fashion styles are, like these really pouffy sleeves. I would never even think of buying something like that. I could never pull it off. But they are fun to look at!
On a different note, doesn’t the hair on this lady look so nice and lustrous? And the eyes and red lips are just so…pretty I suppose 🙂
One thought I had while looking at other artists’ Instagrams, websites, etc. is how they have such a consistent style. I always wonder how they achieve that. Does it come naturally, or do they really have to strive to maintain the uniform look? If you look at other posts I have, even within the last couple of months, they have so much variety.
I remember my 8th grade art teacher telling me that if someone thinks your art is done by multiple artists, then that is a bad thing.
The thing with me is I get bored with a certain “look.” Sometimes I use a lot of brushwork and very little pencil, or just the opposite. My color scheme always varies. Even the faces I draw are so diverse style-wise.
Any advice, folks?
Until then, I think I’m going to create stuff that I like and that I find enjoyable!
I got this idea from here, Pinterest of course. My friend happens to love books (who doesn’t?), so I am sending this for her birthday present!
I love the small set of Cotman watercolors that Winsor and Newton sells!
Seems like my projects lately have been some variation of this.
P.S. Don’t you love the rag in the background?!
