Hi friends! First off I want to congratulate Danielle Grater for winning a set of FabArt paint brushes! Don’t worry if you didn’t win because you can still use the 20% off coupon: 7L35VMG2 to snag some for yourself! My life has been pretty hectic lately, how about yours? I find that I am much more at peace with the world if I take a little time out each day to create for fun. The other day before my family was up I saw with my coffee at my desk and painted this mermaid. You might recognize the palm tree form a tutorial a couple of days ago.
Paintings like this are a stream of consciousness, I don’t really have a plan, it is more like playing. I like to do this kind of work in an art journal or sketchbook so it doesn’t feel too formal. If it turns out bad, no worries I just close the book LOL!
