This is another portraits I did of Mum. It was my very first attempt with watercolours. I wasn’t very happy with how the watercolours turned out, so I added water colour pencils over the top. This is my favorite portrait of Mum, thus far.
Still working away on my many, many projects at the moment. Working on all, finished none. ***sigh***
One commissioned portrait just about finished and another that needs a lot more work.
Working on original artworks, as well as some other special items, for my Etsy store
Planning my classes for Life Book
. There is still time to sign up, if you haven’t already.
May you have a wonderful day.
I don’t think I ever posted the final painting of my painting of my Mum.
This is acrylic on canvas and is approximately 1m x 1.2m. It’s on a very large easel.
You can see the original drawing here
In case you didn’t see the self-portrait I did, which is exactly the same size, here it is:
These painting were to be a series of 3. I have made the third canvas, but have yet to make a start on it. It was to be either my Nana (grandmother) or my daughter, as the three would represent three generations. My style changes all the time, so who knows what the third one will look like.
I recently framed this portrait of Mary and entered it into a local competition. It, along with my ‘Divine Mercy’ image of Jesus, is in the shop window of a local christian shop called ‘Jacob’s Well. The competition is apart of an Art festival that is run every year where I live and sees artists displaying their work in shop windows around town.
This is my first ever competition that I’ve entered my work into, so my fingers are crossed. Wish me luck,
P.S. Prints of both artworks are available in my Etsy shop
