Hey! I hope that you are having a wonderful and restful weekend!
As I do every Sunday, here are a few studies and pieces I was able to complete this week. This week I worked primarily with watercolors and oils. You may have already seen some of these, as I created them specially for my Day of the Dead blog post I published this past Thursday. Read that blog post here to learn more about this wonderful Mexican celebration and how to draw a human skull (for beginners)! I included a downloadable step-by-step PDF at the end for you to practice with!
Next week, I am continuing with the plant/flower studies I promised myself I would work on. I really need to improve in this area! In next Thursday's blog post I will be sharing with you how I am brainstorming and planning for the seasonal/Christmas paintings, cards and tags I will be selling both personally and through my online shops. Just in case you aren't aware, my Redbubble and Society6 stores are now open! I am making it a priority to keep uploading awesome products with my work to sell there, if you are interested!
Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you around soon!
