My first new design of 2017! A Watercolour Diamond Pattern.
I got a watercolour set for Christmas so I have been having a lot of fun painting and creating some fun new designs like this one!
I made a repeating pattern from a diamond I painted, which I think turned out really nice as it looks good on a lot of the products in my stores. I’ve even uploaded it to all 3 of my stores on Society6, Redbubble and Zazzle!
Check out a sample of some of the products I created below:
I hope you guys like this one, because I am planning on making some more new designs using my new watercolours! Be sure to follow my blog so you don’t miss them.
In other news, I’m turning 30 this Friday D: I am a little bit freaked out about this, but to celebrate surviving 30 years I am going zip-lining for the first time at Grouse mountain!! Eeek! Wish me luck!
What do you guys think of this design? I love painting but I feel like the designs don’t sell as well as my other illustrative work. I wind up giving them away to friends usually, since they take up a lot of space.
I also enjoy working with metallic paints for some reason. They just look so shiny *.*
Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day weekend!
Be sure to follow my blog if you want to see more of my art work and other projects! I am also around on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram if you want to see what I’m up to there as well.
This is a painting I did for my coworker’s wall so it is basically my first ever commissioned piece!
…and it’s huge! 2 x 3 feet, acrylic on canvas! Here is another view of the painting on the easel, so you can get an idea of the size.
My coworker is a Geologist so this piece is inspired by geodes and aerial photography of landscapes. I also incorporated her favourite colours into the piece (yellow and blue).
In other news I seem to be always making new art and currently have a few more paintings and illustrative pieces in the works. I am also getting prepared for an exhibition coming up in the next couple of weeks ~ more details coming soon. Not to mention some craziness at work – I have a lot on my plate at the moment!
Also — don’t forget to enter my Sugar Skull Colouring Contest ASAP as the deadline is coming up this Sunday! Winners will be featured in a blog post in the week before Halloween!
