Sunflowers always pop up in my art – I can’t seem to help myself… Let’s be honest though, who doesn’t find them cheerful?! And at this time of year they are an especially sweet reminder of summertime. This painting is inspired from a photo I took in my back yard this past summer and the painting will be another addition a to the series I’m creating for the cafe ‘Break in Time‘.I did a sketch first – which I like to try to do as much as possible. Always seems to make thing flow smoother once I paint.I am happy with it in the end I feel like the sunflower pops right out at the viewer. I hope you enjoyed stopping by here.
Wow – sometimes life can be a whirlwind eh?! My fault though; I had kids and I love projects. I’m so project oriented that it’s crazy how I can’t stop my brain from always wanting to do something new… I’m a getter-done-girl though so they all get finished (in time). 😉 I am still working through my new painting series but I’m also trying hard to be mindful of the benefits of frequent drawing. Sometimes I love what I sketch and other times I cringe… In the end though my art improves when I draw more. Attached here are few of my recent sketches and drawings. The sunflower pictured above is slowly being brought to life in my current painting. I’m not totally thrilled with this bicycle drawing – it was one of my first attempts at tablet drawing but I thought I’d share with you anyway. It’s inspired by the photo below which I took years ago on a Sunday drive. Now this scooter drawing was purely for fun – it’s something I have been wanting to do for ages. I’d love, when time permits, to create a series of illustrations inspired by modern scenes. Not sure when I’ll ever get to the next one but the idea is burning a hole in my brain while it waits! This drawing was actually a recent commission ordered for a gift. It’s inspired from the engagement photo below. It was super fun to create – I mean who wouldn’t want to chance to draw a couple in love out front of Cinderella’s castle – come on! So sweet!That’s all for now folks – I realize I have been neglecting my blog in all life’s busyness but here’s hoping I can get on a regular posting track again soon. (I know I’m probably dreaming… 😉 ) Happy Wednesday friends!
