Between commissions

October 13, 2014

Christmas is right around the corner, and with it comes the custom portraits rush. I've already started working on a few, but I won't post them here or anywhere until after the Holidays. I don't want to spoil the surprise for anyone.

In between commissions, I'm hoping to be able to draw and paint a little too so I don't leave this page completely blank.
Here are a couple I finished lately:

 

Cheetah 3 - 5x7" - Colored Pencils
SOLD

 

 

Cat and Crow 21 - 8x10" - Colored Pencils
SOLD

30 Paintings in 30 days

~ Paintings #12, #13, and #14 ~

Today I learned to use a fun technique using oil pastels, and an embossing tool. It's called sgraffito. What you need to do is add some layers of colors on your paper, and then add a layer of black on top. With the embossing tool (you can also use a toothpick, or a skewer), you scratch away the layer of black pastel and draw anything you like. For best results, it's best is to use a smooth support, and try to make sure the colors cover the whole surface before adding the black.
I got to use my imagination, be creative,  and had a lot of fun. I've got some ideas for a few more, but I had to stop at three.
So many things to do, so little time....

I know I haven't been posting a lot lately.

In December I'm usually very busy with Christmas custom portraits, which of course I cannot show just yet, or I might ruin someone's surpsise. So until I can show you what I've been up to, here are a few drawings I did not too long ago:

When you're busy getting your new store ready,

Creating new artwork, and adding a bunch of new prints for sale. There are about 200 prints available right now in the store, and there will be in all at least 700, with new ones added with the creation of new artwork. I'm trying to add them all before the end of the month so it's ready for the holiday season. I'll be offering discount codes to use there. In fact, I already have two for you:

Buy two ACEO prints and get one free: 342ACEOPRINTS
Buy one 5x7" print and get one half off: 5x7PRINTS
