Hello again, I am back with the video of my sweet girl and cat painting, I’ve added text to explain the steps taken towards making her and set it to relaxing music.
This weekend will be a busy one for me as I have a number of different projects to catch up on and new ones to start too!!
More on this later.
Health and fitness wise I’ve managed to find a diet that suits me quite well, it’s not really a diet but more a way of eating that is in line with maintaining a healthy body.
I will also start going to the gym next week… hopefully.. lol I’ll let you know if I manage to do it. In the meanwhile I’m continuing with my youtube workouts!! :)
I managed to finish another sweet girl and cat painting, I am much happier with this one as I feel I gave it my full attention whilst taking it very slowly, enjoying the process of painting and figuring out how I wanted her to look etc.
She came out a bit lighter in skin tone than I expected, I think ‘High Yella’ is the term used in the USA :D
My next painting will feature a girl wth much darker skin and possibly plaits.
Generally life has been good, I am really getting into my fitness and healthy lifestyle changes, I have been on a mission to see my abs!! but I have no idea if they actually exist :D I have cut quite a lot of things from my diet such as dairy, wheat (mostly), processed foods, alcohol (mostly) etc and have been doing a number of different youtube exercise routines… they are amazing!!! More on this in my next post!!
I’ve actually managed to finish my Ejina painting!! YAY! This painting took a lot out of me as I haven’t painted realistic faces for some time, plus I never sketch.. something I need to change, I started making art 3 years ago and hopefully with more practice I will find the process a bit easier in future :)
I hope you like her? I think she looks very pissed off.. with a bit of a ‘wt actual f’ expression on her face lol
Hello, back again, I’ve been going through a process of re-focus that will put my art and fitness at the top of my priorities so no more gaming for me for a while at least… (I was lost in an online game for around 18 months.. I loved every minute of it too :) )
So this painting was sitting on my bedroom floor for months… if not a year… in an unfinished state and I decided to bring her to life as a reintroduction to my art regime.
She is called Ejina and is a character I created to explore my history and the history of my ancestors, she is part African, Native American and European and she lives in the 18th century..
This painting will be called ‘Break Free’ once finished.
I recently finished another Life Book 2017 painting Yay!
This one is called ‘We have each other’ and was originally supposed to be the blue elephant, but I decided to add a pink horse and cute little Fennec fox.
I named the painting ‘We have each other’ because the creatures are all so vastly different from their natural realistic counterparts that I figured they would have formed a sort of club of ‘Animals with differences’ :P and supported each other :)
I finished another Life Book 2017 painting yay!!!
This one is called flowers of gratitude and I do have a lot to be grateful for right now.
I started a new job which I absolutely adore and am so happy to have moved on from the company I’ve worked for for what seems like most of my life… ALL CHANGE IS GOOD!!
This painting took me out of my comfort zone somewhat as we were asked to paint a semi realistic yet whimsical portrait in watercolours.. a medium I have had little practice with.
But I love the bright colours of the flowers and the intriguing expressions on the lady’s faces.
I hope you like it too :)
This is the actual crystal heart life book lesson that I deviated from quite a bit in the previous picture.
Its amazing how the same lesson can be interpreted so differently
