Hello again. I am happy to say I finally finished the pastel painting of Laura and Mary Ingalls from “The Little House” tv series. It was NOT easy.
I really had a hard time with this one and it was not fun! I was using an old photo of the two girls which was small and blurry, so I had a hard time capturing a lot of details in their faces. Much erasing was done and so I had to darken lines by using the computer. But anyway it’s completed and I may just try another one of the two girls together in a different setting. It had taken me so long, I just had to complete this so I could get it on my blog here and start some other new art projects!
This is where the new cow print comes in. I have wanted to do a series of farm and other animals done in watercolors with white backgrounds for so long. I had purchased a new watercolor set and brushes and was so excited. As soon as I finished the portrait of Laura and Mary, I took out my paints and just tried this painting of a cow from one of my photos from one of our Lancaster PA trips. I was so happy the way that turned out, and Im so ready to try more. I may even put these designs on tea towels and other products if they are striking enough. Hope you like him.
I will be definitely be putting up some of the new watercolors and some other Amish pastel portraits I am starting as well, so please come back soon. Stay tuned!
