One more year goes by

Wasn't it just  few days when we were celebrating the new 2015? And now we are saying good bye to it...
This year was artistically full of awesome and I was able to accomplish most of my goals, and the ones I haven't gotten to yet, are at least in the queue ;o)

My channel has been growing and I will continue to post weekly.  I have been part of awesome art groups offering my art lessons *I will talk more about a new art jourlaing class soon! and I have stayed creative everyday, which sometimes is a difficult thing with all the life things going on ;oP

I hope next year is wonderful, creative and full of joy for you and your loved ones.
Thank you for visiting and many blessings ♥
 See you next year! Happy 2016!

ACEO video, painting with acrylics

Here's the 2nd video of the C.A.C. series for winter art. I have been making longer videos, seems like you guys like them not too short? Usually I edit to have them about 5 to 7 minutes, this new ones are around 20 minutes.

And talking about time... Is the year really gone? wow... Why am I always surprised at the end of December? \(Ͼ˳Ͽ)/

Let me know what you think, and I hope you have a wonderful new year's eve!

Winter art video coloring an ACEO

I made some winter art videos, originally there were going to be 3, but then I got very sick and my voice was gone so I will have to make a voice over on the 3rd installment .... I really didn't want to sound like Darth Vader  lol

Here is the 1st one:

Thanks for your comments and  see you in the next one! :o*

Just hello

Hello there!
I have been working hard at my channel but neglecting a bit my blog. I will try to adjust or unify both so the blog doesn't stay behind :o)
This is just a personal post, tomorrow I will have a new video, so check again or subscribe to see it as soon as it is up in the channel

The last few days, actually a whole week already! I've been sick with a terrible flu bug. I rarely get sick so it is extra annoying :oP (Not that ever a flu is welcome).

I'm sharing this cartoon from  Lunarbaboon, visit his page, it is fantastic! But this one in particular is awesome. Enjoy!

Day 29, DoD day of the dead art

This is the continuation of my art collab with Sal, the video is coming soon with more details!

I just wanted to post the painting as my last face of the 29.
Well, I hope everyone had fun, and even if there was stress and frustration, we still discovered something new by pushing a daily time to do our art. :o*

Day 28, drawing with the left hand

I made this sketch with pencil and darkened a little digitally. We are almost all done with the challenge!
 
I also made this one earlier, when I originally read about the teacher  telling the little boy his left hand was "bad"... some people should not be near schools, much less teachers.
But out of that negativity, we made in the 29 faces group, many, many! left art art. ♥

Day 27, a face in a splash of paint

I spent most of the day packing and organizing and checking my art stash for things that I know well I do not use, because I had forgotten i had them... yes, shame on me LOL
But hey, I will be posting the goodies as I downsize and reorganize my art room. Keep an eye for the post!
For now, I made a face out a splash of paint that I found and like...
Turned out cut I think? ;o)


Looks like a little feather ♥ Maybe it is a little sparkle of the red blood moon we had tonight (and that I couldn't see in this dusty sky we have) >:o/

OMG Day 26 of 29 faces. Drawing a face on card stock

I made this drawing while waiting for my husband in the car on an errand. It is in red card stock that I used to make a little sketchbook...
I have been SO busy with the video art collabs, the video editing and the new 2 online classes (registration open now! see HERE) bu I can always make a little time for a sketched face ♥ We are almost at the end of the 29 faces!
What is new for me this time around is the position of the heads when I draw or paint, and in this case the hair... isn't she cute wiht that short style?

Day 24 brush the paint on the paper

This one is another of the "clean the brush" pages, and I decided to make hair with the black paint, so it will be a bit of a problem when I come back to finish the skin tones. But overall, it is a fun face ;o)

Day 19, illustration

Day 18 Charcoal on paper

Day 16. The eyes make a difference

Here you can see the first steps on my face and then how I added more detail to the face:
Just a little highlight makes a big difference.


We survived the 1st half of the challenge! Are you holding on? I hope so!
Remember that this month we have an extra day.

Day 15. Stopping before the art is finished

If you feel that you overwork your paintings, I invite you to do this exercise:
Start a piece and way before it is finished, stop. Let it sit on the side for a day or two. Think  of several ways to keep working on it, like color or any other technique to apply, and then go ahead and finish. Do not add anything else than what you thought of while in the break. It is just an excercice and it is easier for some than for others. Try and see! :oD

Day 14, turquoise and coral

Have you tried faces in different poses? They are a bit more challenging than a frontal face but fun to make. Try if you have not already!


Today is a special day. My baby is starting college. I officially have to grown kids in the university... sniff sniff. (I'm crying for the cost of the books! omg!) lol

Day 12 paint a page in my art journal

I am having so much fun brushing faces and leaving them to be a re-start for later. Some would be completed just as they are, but I just think of all the extra details I will add later, practicing to stop and to have a more loose brush. This one might be calling for a few layers of highlights/ Later. Maybe :o)

Day 10, of 29. Pencil sketch

I made this little sketch in less than 10 minutes. Pencil on card stock. That goes to prove that we can do something fun every day. I edited digitally to make the colors stronger, I like the results. Somehow the white turned into pink blue and purple...  :o)

This painting was so much fun to make, I turned it into a mini e-lesson.

Registration now open!

Easy to follow instructions from start to finish.

What is this class about?
 This mini online class is only one project, unlike my other classes, but I have included some extras just to make it more fun.
Play with texture, collage, drawing, and different kinds of paints.


How long is this mini class?
It is over 1 hour (edited) workshop. In real time is it longer because of the waiting periods of some steps.  You have access to it for a long time... at least a year. And can watch it as many times a s you want! ♥

What do I need?
-Fast internet connection.
>-Acrylic paint, mediums and brushes.
-Assorted templates and patterned paper.
The full list of materials will be given after joining the class.


 And of course I have samples and freebies! Join my youtube channel for fun  tutorials and demos.

Day 7. Three quarters 3/4 face

Very hot colors! Looks like she is o fire :oD
I actually had to stop myself from keep going... I want to make a deliberate effort in leaving things unfinished. It is good for those of us that overdo the details. Once in a while, leave a figure just marked, and stop.
It. Is. Hard. (°‿~ )

Day 6. Painting details in the human face.

When I started to work on Visual journals, I had no idea I was going to like it so much.
There is certain kind of magic to go back and find a page to finish, or to add something else, and leave it for more later on.
In this page I worked some more in some layers I had left for months, and it felt good to make a face, and add many more details.

Day 4 Reworking a journal page

This is a face I made long time ago but I never felt ok with it. So I gessoed a bit, and started a different one. Not sure what I will do to the hair, but I'm liking the face :o)

 

Unfortunately I did not take a picture of how it looked before   \(Ͼ˳Ͽ)/

Day 2 Sept 2015 Corful journal page

One of the most fun things I like doing, is painting fast wiht left over paint for any other project.
I do not get to select a color, and I do not let my stong inclination of doping details.
That's a really good exercise for me! Because I like to get of my comfort zone and let the brush go fast with as little detail as I can manage.
Yes, there is such a thing as not knowing when to stop, and having too much fun lol
