Moody Urban Flower Painting

I really love exploring different color schemes to figure out what adds excitement and energy to a piece and what makes a mess of things. 

With my last flower being so light and bright, it seemed fun to bounce off in the other direction and make something moodier; a little bit more urban. 


Add purples, white and stamping

Block out flower shape

Darken background and start outlines

Add stencils, paint and doodling.

Have a terrific day :)

Flowers and Rainbows

I think this might be the most spring-colored thing I've ever painted. By a wide margin.

But instead of freaking myself out entirely, I popped in a bunch of neon, a bit of yellow and made rainbow. Which might be my favorite color.

Here's my steps:

Base Layer:

2nd Layer:

Blocking out the flower:

Add in some neon pink... dots and details

Finish off with more paint and some stenciling.

Thanks for visiting :)

Butterfly Tag with Hand Carved Stamp

Playing along with the March 12 Tags of 2015 by Tim Holtz and I got to use a stamp I just carved this week.

I was on the fence about making it (I'm so busy right now with art deadlines I wasn't sure I could spare the time) but then I saw Corrie's absolutely gorgeous version of the tag and I couldn't resist.

Have a great weekend!
