Been a bit since I've posted. It's always hectic around Christmas time for me, and this year more so than usual. However, things have started calming down and I'm back with pencil in hand. In fact, I present you my newest piece of artwork:
This was done in oil pastels last weekend as a gift for the newest member of my family, my niece who was born this morning.
The piece didn't come out quite the way I wanted. The eyebrows are a little high and the skirt doesn't seem as ruffle-filled as I waned, but all in all, I am pleased. My favorite part, by far, is the tree though. The leaves just came together so nicely and the coloring in the tree worked really well after I sprayed it with fixative (before I sprayed it, the tree was a little too light and red, but fixative always brings out the darker colors in a project).
|1. ||WELL! It's about time, Lady! Tell them to stop working you so hard.|
YAY for fixative... love the blue leaves (blue is my favorite color). However, I can't say that I've ever heard of blue leaves on a tree before. Artists are so lucky - you get to do anything.
Just dream it, draw it, and voila! ...piece of beautiful art.
Sweet piece and lovely gift, Anika.
