The Key


The Key
Graphite,watercolour.

There are people out there who suffer from sadness,
not able to tell anyone keeping it hidden away.
I believe that there is beauty and happiness within everyone.
A Key within them that needs to be found.

A Dark Undercurrent


A Dark Undercurrent
watercolour,ink,coloured pencil

my wee studio table:)


I was trying to take pictures for a WIP but I ALWAYS take just one picture(I hate stopping when I'm painting...you just get into this zone). Oh well, at least you can see a bit of my table:)In this particular painting I only used my Schmincke paints instead of a few different brands. That blue vase thingy in the back holding my pens and such...I made it(and so proud of it). I have my chocolate-ginger altoids in case I need a wee snack, as well I use the tins afterwards to hold my stray watercolour pans, it's great to travel with too!. That little green bag is usually open and contains my crystals and stones(shiny pretty things make me want to paint:D). Hoping it thunders again today:D!!!!Back to sketching:)

Fate

Here's my last piece I finished from January:)
"Fate"
9X12watercolour,coloured pencil,ink and iridescent acrylic paint(which you can only see on the original)
it's my first angel! so I hope you all like it:)

I also took about 4 W.I.P pics so here they are:


so here I finished the background(which wasn't much)and started with adding some texture to the wings, adding the darker shades to my angel and a light wash to get the feel of what skin tone to use.


here I worked on the shading on the face.


now I added more green to the wings...again for more texture and colour, as well I did my first darker wash on her face and body(I like mixing my own skin tones, to me it adds more depth).

and here I added a darker wash to her face and body...then my camera died and I was too lazy to charge...sorry:)but it gives everyone a little idea on how I do things...I'm pretty bad at explaining, so I'm sorry for that, but any questions are welcome:).
Hope everyone has a fantastic week!
HUGS!!!:)

New Silverpoint Art-Celeste

Celeste
4X6 prepared 100%cotton rag
Silverpoint


Yes she is very light, but that's silverpoint for you, I didn't want to darken it on-line, I wanted to show people what it really looks like(you can't make it darker), after a few months it starts getting darker(my other ones have) and then it'll tarnish...I LOVE silverpoint! scanning is not easy, neither is taking photos..the silver likes to reflect.
Hope you all like it:)
