This 18×20 acrylic painting started out as as me playing with unique methods of applying paint. The underlying part of the painting was done by scraping the paint across the canvas. The second layer was done using a bath puff. This is whe an image of the girl appeared to me. The last layer of the white dress was done with a bath puff and the rest was done using the usual paint brushes.
One of the many doodle illustrations I do over the course of the year. This one is done in color pencil on white paper.
Once you get your Christmas tree you have to get it home. This latest illustration, done on an old book with soft pastels and color pencils, pays homage to the age old tradition of getting your perfect tree home.
Another in my series of Nordic Gnome drawings I have entitled The Furst Gnome. Just for clarity The Furst Gnomes are a group of gnomes not just one. This one is on an old book page and rendered in soft pastels.
The drawing on the left is a quick sketch of a father and daughter looking for the perfect tree. The drawing is done in color pencil. The one on the right was done using acrylic paints and soft pastels.
The flower in the blue vase was created using soft pastels brushed with water. The background is another old book page. The flower on the right is done on a 4×8 piece of white card stock using acrylic paints.
I thought I’d try my hand at another illustration. This one is of a little girl watering her red flower. I used soft pastels on a cream colored paper.
