Landing

I sketched this piece out last night.
Watercolor paper, 9x12 with acrylics/watercolors/pencils
I tried to take a few more photos of the process, but I tend to mix colors and work pretty fast before they dry. That is the beauty and beast of acrylic paints. They are fast drying. As I make more of these on paper, I am learning different techniques and getting more used to the medium.

 And one picture to show you that I do have a helper. This time I decided to take a break because she was being pretty persistent.



 The title of this piece has changed three times today. Landing, the title of the blog post. Then light landing because of the reindeer landing on the light strand. The final title of this painting turned into Winter Magic.

This is the final picture. Thanks for stopping by.

Rethinking My Facebook Point of View

I decided to take my Facebook fan page down. I was only connecting to 2 or 3 people per post, and that is ridiculous. I have decided that I will be using blogger as my main posting site. If you are friends on my main Facebook page, you might see links to blogger. I apologize in advance if you feel my blog posting is too spammie.

A little welcome mat

I posted the before and afters on my Facebook page while I was creating this piece of art last week.

I started off this time by sketching directly to the watercolor paper and then I painted the image with acrylics.
The background was added in Photoshop.
The welcome message was added in Photoshop.
That means it can be changed to say whatever you want it to say, different font or color etc.

Just a little update...

It as been a long time since I worked or used my Facebook fan page, but I am trying to get this (blogger) and the (Facebook fan page) connected with the same post. I finally figured out the promotion button was actually called a page badge. So with a little help from google, I now have my badge on the right side of the blog layout.

I'm off to search for a program that will allow me to post to both.

To answer one question really quickly here, I no longer sell images for tagging purposes. I am signed with a licensing company and am working on building my portfolio and possibly in the near future what might be products sold at a big box store near you.
I do not have a zazzle store and I will not be setting up one in the future. I want to make sure that all images licensed are not being offered in any form anywhere other than the contracts that are made. Thank you for your understanding.
