Christmas Cookies Finished

My Christmas Cookie drawing is finally finished. In between visiting places and preparing something new (more on this in another post) i managed to work a bit on this drawing occasionally and finally complete it. 
It was fun to draw the cookies, however the red ribbon was a bit more tedious due to the fact that i had to mix a lot of colors to get the right red tint! 

I'm going to be working on something new in the upcoming weeks so keep an eye out for the announcement!

Christmas Drawing

It's been a while since my last update. But i finally moved and started working on my projects again.
This is my latest project that i'm working on which is a Christmas themed drawing!
I'm using Prismacolor Premier pencils for this work on Mi-Teintes toned paper.

I had a lot of fun drawing this and a bit of a challenge. Reds always seem the hardest color to get correct as one might be to dark or the other too light. 

However as you can see it is finally getting there thanks to loads of blending and testing on a little paper i have on the side :)
It still needs work as my cookies are not yet fully shaded and colored and i need to darken up more parts of the drawing as i go along!

More updates will follow soon!

Working on an old project!

I am currently working hard to finish this little bundle of cuteness. I had so many other things to do and this project got pushed to the back of the queue all the time. 
Now that i have more free time i can finally work on it more and here is some progress compared to last time!

Work in Progress

This is my work in progress for a colored pencil magazine challenge that i am creating.
So far this has been a nice challenge and i have enjoyed drawing it. The water was quite a challenge as i had to blend a few colors to get the right tone!

It's almost done and i have just got some work left on the lily and the fish.
of course i will probably add in some more details and highlights to finish it off

Floral Art

These two watercolors are made with the same Maimeri Blue as i talked about in my previous posts. 
I really love the bright colors in the range (and i don't even own all of them). I will be buying a few more however to expand the range of colors available for use. 

Both paintings can be found in my Etsy shop!

Fox Drawing

I started this fox drawing a while ago, but due to all kinds of other projects i had to postpone it over and over. Now i finally have some free time as all my projects are done and i have started working on it again.

Currently i'm working on the background. After this is finished i should have a good overview on how much more color the fox will need :)

Farm Animals

I tried some more colors out of the Maimeri watercolors that i recently purchased. All of them are so intense that i'm sometimes wondering what i should be painting. When that happens i usually paint that which i like most! Animals!

While doing so it also gave me a chance to try out some of the red and brown colors. 
The results are more then satisfying. I hope you like this chicken and cute rabbit as much as i do!

If you would like to purchase these original paintings then you can find them in my shop (links are below the images)

More Fruits!

Continuing the trend of yellow paintings here are some bananas i painted with the same Maimeri watercolors. Bananas are actually one of my favorite fruits and it was easy to paint them as i always have a bunch around to eat! (and yes i did eat them afterwards...)

I swapped some colors out of my palette this time and added others. For these paintings i added ochre and a neutral tint instead of green.

Both paintings measure approx 6x8 Inches. Shop links are below the pictures!

More paintings coming soon!

Watercolor Paintings of Lemons

Here are some more lemon paintings that i have made over the last few weeks.
After my previous lemon and lime paintings i actually ordered more paints from the Maimeri Blue series, because i liked them so much!

I will update with more paintings in the next few days as i have been giving all the new colors a go and i'm very happy with the results! Links to my shop can be found below each picture.

Watercolor Paintings of Lemons and Limes

Here are some original watercolor paintings of lemons and limes.
For these paintings i used Maimeri Blue artist grade watercolors. The colors in this range are beautifully intense!

These paintings would make for a great rustic farmhouse decor.
You can find these original paintings in my online shop (links below the images)
