I wanted to have another go at creating a painting using these colours, and this is what I came up with:
It reminds me of the shrubs they have around my school which drop white flowers in a carpet all over the ground. The branch of the tree is actually painted in navy watercolour paint although it looks pretty close to black.
I love holidays! I get so much painting done
Here’s what I’ve been working on:
I’m hoping to donate this painting to the Cerebal Palsy League’s ‘Art for Arts Sake‘ charity auction next month (it has to be accepted first so fingers crossed!)
This one is going to be sent to someone special
I’ve also been working on some new canvas works – I’ll post details here soon. I hope everyone had a lovely Easter long weekend!
I’m *really* late with posting this Illustration Friday painting – the new topic is due up sometime today. It took me a while to get the idea straight in my head.
Here’s what I came up with for the “rescue” topic:
A heart’s rescue.
As promised (OK, a little later than promised, but still!) here’s my step-by-step for the creation of my latest painting, “Brave”.
Hope you liked learning about how I created this painting
I’m excited to announce that I’ve been invited to write for Handmade Spark.
The site is designed for sellers and buyers to connect. Through the blog sellers wil learn about marketing, blogging, how tos, and much more. Buyers will find new shops and items through the handmade features posted by me and a group of writers. Handmade Spark is also a directory where sellers can submit their links, like Twitter, Facebook , and blogs.
I’m really excited to be involved, and I hope I can bring a little something different to the website as I’m so far the only Aussie writer.
My first post is about ACEOs. I was inspired by the fact that I made my own first batch of ACEOs this weekend. I love the way they look on the little easel! If you’d like to find out more about ACEOs, you can read my post on Handmade Spark.
Christmas is sneaking up on us once again!
We put our Christmas tree up this weekend, and I’ve started thinking about Christmas cards.
Last year I painted a Christmas picture and used the image to make my cards:
I’ve finally gotten around to painting something for this year’s cards. Its a bit different to last years, but I hope people will like it all the same. I’m going to get the prints made up sometime tomorrow and I’ll post a picture of the cards when I’ve made them.
Don’t forget to enter my giveaway if you haven’t already done so!
Yes, I have even more trees!
This painting was inspired by one of my favourite quotes:
“In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.”
In other news, I have posted my first fan special on my KL Bailey Art Facebook Fan Page. If you’re not already a Fan, become one today – I will be posting weekly specials on paintings!!
Could there be an Inspire Me Thursday subject more suited to my work than “Tree”?
I have always loved trees, ever since I was a child & spent most of my free time climbing the huge tree we had in our backyard. Trees feature heavily in my artwork.
I don’t really need an extra excuse to paint trees, and was planning to paint some trees this weekend anyway. I think I’ll be contributing more than one painting to this weeks theme!
My first painting:
What I wanted to do with this painting is to represent the fact that beauty does not mean looking like everyone else. Being an individual and being yourself is more beautiful than becoming a carbon-copy of the ideals projected by the media.
