    Here's another watercolor attempt. I ran a little auction on facebook as part of a fundraiser for a friend and thought it would be a way to get in more practice with this new medium, which is so much different than I am used to. I kind of like the idea of offering other aucitons in the future until I really get consistent with a new medium. It's interesting to see what people would be willing to pay before I set a price. I am thinking about running auctions in the future for watercolor paintings and woodburnings as I gain more experience. That way, I am not neccessarily putting in time/materials for free, but I can allow the person to set the price until I become comfortable setting a price myself.

    I am open to any adivce on watercolors as I find them both fun and frustrating at the same time.

    Now that I am done with commissions for a little bit, I thought I would do a little painting for myself. This is for a group project in one of the horse artist groups on facebook. I am doing this piece with acrylic paints on 8 x 10" acrylic paper. I feel like I need more practice with painting and want to take my time with this one. I'll post updates as I go along. Here is what I have done so far today.

    I touched up the colored pencil drawing and finished (I think) the arabian painting.

    I actually used a little bit of colored pencil to touch up a few areas. It's one of those paintings that I feel I am finished with for now, but might go back and do more with it at a later time. For now, I'm calling it finished.

    I am waiting on a couple people to get back to me on upcoming commissions and was bored this afternoon, so I sketched this horse out for fun. 5 x 7" mechanical pencil.

    I know I've been MIA in here and for a very good reason. On May 3rd, I gave birth to my first child, a little girl. She came 3 weeks early and was tiny at only 5lbs 4oz. We named her Elise Josephine after my husband's and my grandmothers. I've put commissions on hold in the mean time as my whole life revolves around Elise right now, but she is worth it. I know this isn't horse or art related, but since the horse art forum is really the only place I ever post, I thought I'd just share here in my art journal thread. Here are some of my favorite pictures of my latest masterpiece, baby Elise!

    Bwt, anyone who wants to draw her is more than welcome to. I'd love to see my little boo portrayed in a piece of art by one of our talented members.

    Oh my goodness! She's so precious... Congratulations! I would love to try drawing her. I don't know WHEN it will happen as I have been really busy, but I will definitely try! So cute.
