Christmas Poinsettia

I recently had a birthday and my wonderful hubby gave me a set of Pan Pastels. I have not ever worked in pastels, but these looked like such fun I gave hints for them for my birthday:) 
The above sketch is my first attempt at using the pastels and boy what fun! 
This sketch was created on Arches hot pressed watercolor paper.
The Christmas spirit is catching up with me this year!
So here is a early Merry Christmas!!!!!

No Fear Watercolor con't

An update on my watercolor painting on Yupo paper.
This is the second step of the painting process where the background portions are defined with darker cooler colors, which will cause them to recede. You can see the previous step in the earlier post here. The woman is starting to become more apparent. Next will be to define the edges of her garment further. Also, to add more definition to some of her facial features. I do not want to define areas too much, just a hint of detail so the mind's eye can fill in the rest.

MillerLine Etsy Shop

Well I have to say in regards to the etsy front, I have been a total slacker! But today, as I was printing some Christmas cards and tags for a local stationery store, I decided to get off my etsy duff and add some new listings to my shop. Please check it out! And if you are anything like me, you still have not gotten your Christmas cards out and definitely haven't wrapped those gifts. So hopefully something in my store will be just what you need to motivate you!
