Well, I finally finished my picture . Problem is, I want to keep touching it! I feel this is done…for now! Hope you like the finished piece.:)
I am now taking a needed break from watercolor and trying my hand at doing pastels again. I love pastels! I can do them rather quickly and I love the realistic result. I just love adding highlights here and there and making the wispy pieces of hair. The pictures seem so alive. I can’t wait to finish this one. I am having a hard time trying to decide what color the background should be, and just praying I don’t mess this up! Oh well, back to the drawing board. Hope you like what I have done so far.
Here is the newest addition to my ever-changing portfolio. This is a picture that was inspired from an old picture taken of my daughter when she was little kissing little sister Kelsey on the head. Every time I looked at the picture, all I could picture was an angel kissing baby Jesus, and I finally drew it. Hope you like it!
Here is the latest angel picture I completed. Hope you like it! I loved doing her eyes! She gives me a feeling of peace. Enjoy!
Just completed this pastel picture. I was ready to throw this one away several times! I tried this one on the smooth side of Canson pastel paper, instead of the textured side, thinking it would be smoother. It is, but I did not like the way the pastel blended on this side. It was like drawing chalk on a blackboard, and I get chills just mentioning that! I erased the hair several times and the dress on the angel wasn’t what I expected as well All in all, when I finished , I was not really happy, until I showed my kids…who LOVED it. I guess it was that I knew all the problems I had with it that didn’t make me happy.
But I guess I am happy with it now.
Here she is…Angel With Baby Deer.
I’m sorry, I know I should be writing more, and I will, but for now, I am trying my pastels out with a fury! I just finished this one and I am so happy with it. I love the way the lamb turned out, better than I ever expected. I have been going on “you tube” for looking up tutorials on how to work with pastels, and have been finding many good ones out there. The one I like the most is “Colin Bradley”. He is the one that I followed on doing my lamb. Hope you like it. I just can’t stop!
I finally finished my latest drawing. I wanted to do more angels and to do this one in pastel was a treat. I really enjoyed creating this piece. The blending of colors is just amazing, and I love the soft, finished look.
I hope you like this one. There will be more coming. Enjoy.
I did this illustration around the time I did my avatar angel. I really should do more of these. I have some good poses I want to try and I would really like to do a blonde or red head. I found this and thought I would just post it as I could find nothing right now to write about. Oh well, I’m sure something will come to me, but for now, please enjoy this peaceful picture.
Here is an angel I designed for a school Christmas Concert years ago. She looks so peaceful.
I rendered this in ink and grey watercolor wash. I think this looks so much better in these tones than it would look in full color. Hope you like it!
Here is another angel to guide you. I did this picture a few years back. It is rendered in black ink and a grey, watercolor wash.
I like the very peaceful look to her face. Enjoy! :) Cheryl
