A fairy kiss on Sunday Sketches

Happy Sunday Everyone. I am sooo glad Saturday is over :) Yup it was one of those day. This little ACEO (2.5x3.5")is done with watercolour pencil, colour pencil, and black pen and so white gel pen. Have a great Sunday and pop by our darling Sohphia's blog and see what the SS group is up this week.

Waiting on an egg on Paint Party Friday

ATC or ACEO? That is the question. One is meant only to be trade the other can be sold.  In the meanwhile I will stuff it in a drawer. In the background (as some wondered) are two more birds (peacocks) with there eggs and some palm trees of sorts.  Yup they are really small. The picture shown here is the actual size of the illustration- 2.5x3.5inches.
Painted with watercolour pencil and water, colour pencil, and white gel pen ,on watercolour paper, backed with card.
Hope you have a great Friday and pop by the Paint Party Friday  and see other artists fab paintings :)

Sketch on Sunday Sketches

I have been wanting to do this illustration for a while but have been daunted by time it might take, and then last week (or the week before) I made an ATC (artist trading card) and was thrilled. ATC seem to be basically anything as long as they are within the dimensions of 2.5x3.5 inches.  This is great as it is something I can finish within allotted  art-free-from-being-a-mummy-time. So here is the sketch of the ATC. I will post the colour version when I finish it. I hope in time for Friday and that I realise it is Friday on Friday. But, today is now Sunday so pop on by Sophia's Sunday Sketches  and see what fabulous work our SS friends have this week.

Relaxing cutwork on Sunday

I sit and watch our sheep graze and hope that we have come to an understanding about boundaries. On  Thursday we got a flock of 17 sheep and were not ready for them, so they had the run of the place so to speak. Friday we finished setting up the electrical fence - the Economical version- and they laughed at that. Saturday we had the almost the optimal version (4 as of opposed to  2 strings of wire) and they seem to be respecting this so far (knock on wood).   No, no sheep drawing as yet :)
To try to relax my brain I got out my art knife and played with a bird doodle and a sweet cheeks image.
- just a scrap of plane  paper

- added black acrylic paint and then a 3d type lacquer finish. Do not really like the result here and it stuck to the paper. Need to invest in felt-pens if I wish to colour the cut work as the paint makes it too soft and sticky .

Hope you have a wonderfully relaxing Sunday and pop by Sophia's Sunday Sketches to to see some wonderful art.

Summer time on a Tuesday with Mr Toast :)

Mr Toast aka Mmm gave us 3 weeks for this Tuesday's challenge - Summer break - and as I finally started to turn last summers sketches into line art I decided "Yes, I will do it".  Granted this morning at 10 the pieces for the above all over the room and not put together nor the painting finished :) 
This little piece is done with water colour (from watercolour pastels ,which I don't think I like as they seem to come off the paper when dry) and colour pencils.
And of course there is a cut an paste element to it :)
Hope you have great week and pop my Mr. Toast 's Creative Tuesday and join the fun :)

Splish Splash on a Sunday

Acutally it should be plick, plink  as it a cool dark Sunday with the hope of rain or hail, which is a bit of a relief from the last couple of sweltering day.  Here's a little mermaid  watercolour (via watercolour pencils) on watercolour paper for SS :). Have a great Sunday and pop on over to Sophia's Sunday Sketches to see some cool art!
