I have finished the sketch of my mermaid for Tam's M3 class. She is on wood and will be finished off with a coat of beeswax (hopefully). The size is 12" x 24". I can't wait to start laying in the color and experience her playful vibe as she develops!
I have already named her, she is "the Princess of Tides"... We were supposed to be using inspiration from Chagall but since he doesn't really inspire me, I'm off doing my own thing... I am very excited about this mermaid. It's my chance to try a little of my own technique and to use some fun products like the mica flakes from Golden. I might add a bit of gold or silver leaf too. I'm just going to go with the flow and see where it leads.
I finished my Mucha angel spread for Sharon L. She is doing very well after her surgery and is looking forward to a healthy and speedy recovery!
I just added a bit of detail to her halo and finished off the background. This photo doesn't show the writing, it was only penciled in at this point, but you can get the idea...
We had quite a bit of snow for us this last week. This year is weird with the weather again. I guess all of the U.S. has been experiencing unusual conditions. Here is a photo of one of my garden ornaments... It was already melting off by the time I took this. Beware the Ides of March - in like a lion...
So my Dears, stay warm and comfy and let the mermaids and fairies inspire you to create! I can feel the fairies dancing about today, it's just so sparkly in here!!!
Forever in art,
