Sometimes plans don’t always go the way you want them to. Our Winter Nights Drive to look at Christmas lights got canceled due to last minute changes, so I decided to tap into my creativity to pass the time. One night of play turned into a week of different art projects~ ❤
The heart picture above was carved out of a fallen pine branch over 3yrs ago. It needed a touch up so I shaved it down to give it a better shape.
I happened to look down at my desk and captured this picture with my camera. I find natural layering fascinating. I have pictures of my trip to Asheville, North Carolina under the glass to my desk. I needed better lighting while carving so I brought my lamp closer to the table. You can still see shavings from my carved heart.
I played around with watercolors on a new type of paper made out of rocks instead of trees (Mineral Paper). This is not a good paper for watercolor, but I wanted to test it out for myself lol.
Here I had put a piece of glass over my original drawing and colored with a different color to give it an underwater feel.
With this past week being Christmas I did a few personalized gifts. This one was for my boyfriend’s brother, I drew him as a Pokemon trainer with his favorite Pokemon, Squirtle.
This one was for his dad, I made a portrait of his fur-boy Johnny.
Hopefully I will keep up my artwork on into this week and those to follow, it was fun to feel like myself again ^_^.
