Summer of Colour ~ Purple ~

What a fun week of purple! I was inspired, when listening to "The Unicorn" by  The Irish Rovers....minus the long neck geese and the green alligator... Here is my take on "The Unicorn". I seriously haven't drawn a unicorn since I was probably 10! I felt like a little kid again while creating this piece :)

Loved working with water colours as well. Still all so new to me, still learning & having fun while doing it!

Can't wait to be inspired by everyones' works of purple!!

Thanks Twinkle Twinkle :)

"Be Mine?"

I've completed her a few weeks back.  I've been so busy with other pieces in between, playing with watercolours for the first time, so exciting...I've just completed a unicorn, of all things, I swear I haven't drawn a unicorn since I was probably 10 yrs. old!

Anyway, in the meantime, I've forgotten all about her...

She's called "Be Mine?"  Dressed to impress from head to toe with a look in her eyes of yearning... with the sole hope that whomever she's looking up at, will be hers...forever & always.

Summer of Colour ~ Red ~

Loving this summer of so many colours...what lovely people I've met with so many diverse talents...thank you so much for visiting & your comments have been making my heart smile!

OoOoo red...so many options...but yet again, I opted to go with the obvious. I really need to get my creative juices flowing & start thinking outside of the box. lol.  Here is my  "Lady in Red"


175

I really enjoyed creating her. I knew I wanted to keep her dress simple yet sleek, & was happy with the embellishment starting in her hair then continuing onto the train of her dress. The butterflies, well, they just appeared after realizing that she's looking up at the sky.

Can't wait to be inspired by every one's works of red!

"Damsel"

She's *Damsel*  After several weeks of going back & forth...not being entirely happy with the way she was turning out, I finally completed & am pleased with the finished piece! It's just that when I start a piece I have a certain look that I want to achieve, in her face that is, and it just wasn't happening in the beginning. So I took a break here & there & little by little I worked on her...& well, now she is done & is available in my shop as well...

I've called her *Damsel.* She simply reminds me of a girl in waiting, just waiting...

Summer of Colour ~ Brown

It's that time of the week again, over at Twinkle, Twinkle! & we're working with Brown. So, at first I wanted to do a bunny or a teddy bear, but of course switched it up once my pencil hit the paper. I probably should have worked with my ordinary colour pencils. I used my water colours here & I'm afraid it didn't come out that good... Although had much fun in creating her...

Here she is, simply "Brown Eyed Girl"

Seriously, this piece has more colour in it than I'm ever used to! I have such a tremendous respect for all the wonderful painters out there!!

Can't wait to check out every ones works of  Brown :)
