Gift of Winter

"Gift of Winter"
watercolor & colored pencil - final painting of the year!

It's easy to be inspired with all of the snowflakes and cool brisk air. The warmth of hearts, of love and grace, is the biggest gift of the season.

Winter's Princess - WIP

Repainting the seasons. It's been several years and I always enjoy the four seasons, living in Iowa I get a lot of inspiration.

This sketch is winter. I'm going larger, 10x14, and they all will be fairies this time around. Not standing, but flying or floating.

I'm looking forward to my new techniques involving colored pencil and the ability to now draw them without reference for the poses.

I'm Painting Again!

 With much thought...not really. With the encouragement of others and a deep desiring need, I started a painting. Like, a big highly detailed painting. Something I haven't done since I think last Christmas?!

Haven't figured out the title yet, so right now she's just titled "Praise".

Here is the process and where I'm at right now...

More soon! :)
