Still practicing the faces…

I think I’m digging this style the most these days…

glamour girlie

but I am also experimenting a little with sort of a Misty Mawn inspired vibe too…

misty style sketch

I’m actually kinda digging them both… really I’m just happy to draw a face that looks like a person.

Next step is to apply what I’ve learned on my iPad to actual journal pages with markers and pencils and paint, oh my!

I’ll let you know how that goes.

I keep thinking I could work on her a little more, but then I tell myself that sometimes you just need to know when to stop… and I dig her, so I have decided she is charming just the way she is.

Look at me… making art & posting it on the blog… two days in a row, no less!

So, I’ve been playing with the Bamboo Paper app on my iPad lately, and I have to say I’m kinda loving it now that I’ve started to climb the learning curve a bit with my little brush stylus.

See that unfinished canvas from the Misty Mawn workshop a couple of posts down? I’d love to tell you that it is finished now. Unfortunately it is not because I’ve never managed to get the skin tone coaxed into a shade that doesn’t make me sad… but I did go back and do that same pic on my iPad, and I think she turned out kinda ok…photo

Yay me!

planted my fairy garden today...

I’ve been having fun with rocks and caulk guns making my fairy castle and upcycling an old plastic fountain into a sparkly waterfall!

Yay Spring!
