☆ Scuba Boy [Friday Art]

Week 48: November 2014

A few weeks ago I shared with you a painting that I was doing for my nephew Fred.

I love making presents to give to my family at Christmas time. There is something so special about making something for your loved ones, knowing that they will love it.

I am pretty sure Fred will love this.

Yet, it feels like forever that I was able sit at my desk to paint. It has been a busy couple of weeks. And I haven't had a chance to finish it off.

Luckily over the weekend past, I had few hours in the studio + managed to finish off Scuba Boy and I am really happy with how it turned out.

All that is left to do is find a frame + wrap it up.

And a hope that he likes it!! 

Are you making presents for your loved ones this year? I would love to hear what creative presents you are giving!

☆ Whimsical Wizard {Life Book 2014}

Week 44 - Whimsical Wizard with Steven Speight

I wasn't sure when I first saw this lesson, how it would turn out.

I don't often paint boys, I mainly do them for clients, and I enjoy painting them, but they don't seem to appear naturally like my girls do...

So this weeks lesson by the amazingly talented Steven Speight, was a magical, whimsical wizard.

And I loved painting my boy!

There was such a wealth of techniques that Steven shared. The clouds were done with a template, as were the back ground details of the city.

And even though my wizards face is a little more feminine than I would have preferred I adore my wizard + am thinking of a few nephews who could do with their own wizards!!

Have a great week.

☆ Inspired Sketches [Friday Art]

 Week 47: November 2014

It has been ages since I have been able to sit down and just sketch to my hearts content.

It feels like forever, but last weekend at the markets, with out Mac + the kids around it was like the flood gates opened. 

Because sometimes I sit down to sketch + I've got nothing. 

Sometimes I have several ugly sketches + may be one good one.

On Sunday it feels like I have 10 new paintings to paint...

Before I share them with you + while you're looking them over maybe you can tell me which one is your favourite, which one you would like to see in paint...

What do you think? Which one would you love to see painted?? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Have a great weekend.
