“I just finished a huge painting let’s do ANOTHER HUGE PAINTING”

Cause that is ALWAYS a good idea!

At least this time I painted with Acrylic, and did something a little less intense!

I got motivated a couple sundays ago, I did this whole thing in one day! This is a 16×20 board canvas, painted with acrylic paints. I have missed doing horses, so this was a lot of fun! Other than all that mane. Goodness.

I have posted the work-in-progress shots below (and I was “livestreaming” it on my facebook page as it happened) as well as the final piece with some detail shots!

Thanks for looking!

Snowy Juncos

I had a snow day so NO WORK WOOT! I took the time to work on embroidery, add some details to a dragon oil painting, and do this quick painting! Juncos are such a cute bird. Little grey bird orbs. This probably took me a couple hours from start to finish. Acrylic paint on 8×10 canvas board. Thanks for looking! More soon!

King Under the Mountain

Oh this poor neglected blog. Sorry WordPress but Tumblr and Facebook are just sooo much easier to update!

Anyway, here is another Hobbit painting I finished a little while ago! This one is acrylic paint on canvas board. I really like how this one turned out, so he is custom framed and hanging on my wall! I forgot how much of a pain mountains are….landscapes are not my strongest area. At least trees and fur are fun!

Thank you for looking! Check out this piece on my society6 page, he looks really good on a phone!

Cuttleshark Attack!

Hello!

Last weekend I put in the effort and did a painting, to unwind a bit.  It’s nice to create something and finish it! The painting started with a small doodle in my notebook, and I liked it enough to make it a finished painting. Completely done with Acrylic paints on a 11×14 canvas board. I have posted all the steps under the cut, I took photos with my phone as I was working. Enjoy!

Thanks for looking!
