Blue Ridge Sunrise

I finished the digital painting that I had posted about HERE. There are some major changes to the original. I’ve added a waterfall and creek and lots more detailing. Click on the photo below to see it full sized.

I’ve named it Blue Ridge Sunrise. The Blue Ridge mountains really do look blue. I tried to do this in a more painterly style, using loss off different texture brushes. I like the end result, do you?

Thanks for looking! Until next time!

Dogwood Blossoms

I bought the Pencil Box brushes by Bardot Brush yesterday. After following Lisa Bardot’s Calathea tutorial I decided to try something of my own with these amazing brushes. I used only the Pencil Box brushes to draw and shade the Dogwood blossoms and leaves in this design. The background was done by using different texture brushes.

This design is now available in my shop. Here are just a few of the great products available in my Dogwood Blossom design:

2 New Paintings

I loosely followed 2 tutorials today and had a great learning experience. The first tutorial that I followed was by Lisa Bardot. I had purchased her Pencil Box brushes and was anxious to use them for this tutorial. This is a Calathea plant, commonly known as a Prayer plant, drawn with the Pencil Box brushes.

Doesn’t it look like it was done with colored pencils? I LOVE these brushes!!!! Lisa Bardot you are genius!

The next tutorial that I loosely followed was by Flo of Art With Flo. I didn’t do the graph on the mountains nor the lines on the moon. I may do some shading on the mountains later. We’ll see.

I learned alot from these 2 tutorials. Thanks for looking!

Granddaughter’s Portrait Finished

I am to the point where IF I do any more to this portrait I’ll mess it up so I’m calling this done. I’m not great with drawing or painting humans but I’m getting better than my previous stick people. Here is the finished portrait.

I hope she likes it. Thanks for looking!

Trying Another Portrait

I was studying this photograph of one of my granddaughters and decided that I would attempt to paint it freehand on my iPad. These was no tracing involved, it is painted by looking at the photo on the shelf on my desk. I’m nowhere near done with it. There’s lots of shading and layers to go yet. All the hay to draw, as she’s laying in a hayfield. But here’s what I have so far………

Tulips and Butterflies Abstract

I’ve been having fun creating new art almost daily. A favorite thing for me to do is to make a copy of one of my designs and then manipulate it into something totally different. My favorite tool is the liquify tool. I use the swirl and push quite a bit to create an abstract.

This is the result of doing this to my recent Tulips and Butterflies Design. It is available in my shop on loads of great products.

Click on the photo below to go directly to that list of products in this design.


You should see the pillows and phone cases and masks with this design! Dresses, tote bags and mini skirt too. 😍

Don’t forget to check out my shower curtain SALE now through April 25.
