Art Everyday: week six

This week was pretty fun. I found a lot of inspiration online that sparked a few of this pieces. I also made some art for a specific purpose, which I normally do not do. My husband and I are teachers and attendees at the most awesome photographers retreat ever, Photo Field Trip. Last year we gave away some ukulele songbooks that I made, and this year we wanted to give away some of my art as prints! We are doing 3 letterpress prints and 3 digital prints do give out to whomever wants them at Field Trip. “Loverprint” (graphic design pun for you) is one of the letterpress pieces that will involve overprint to create the extra colors. Will definitely post pics once I have the prints!

Art Everyday: week three

I got sick this week so I missed a day. :( Branching out and trying some different brushes in my digital paintings. Thursday’s painting is some flower sketches I did for a client’s invitation design. Super excited about that one! I also took a weekend trip to Tahoe, so you’ll see how that influenced the work.

Art Everyday: week one

Happy new year! This year I decided that I would paint or draw something everyday. And I decided that I would share them all here, once a week. My husband got me an Apple Pencil for Christmas and I have been loving it. Most of these are digital paintings done in Procreate on iPad, but on Wednesday I got to have a fun painting date with my friend Rosaura of Pigment and Parchment. We experimented with the raw pigments I brought her back from India. They are amazing! The vibrancy of the of the colors was almost unreal.

Sketchbook : August 16, 2015

Four sketchbook pages in one day! This weekend we are spending it in Cold Springs, NV visiting Geoff’s brother’s family. I love coming here because we literally always just spend our whole days in pajamas hanging around the house. It is the BEST. This is our last weekend of no wedding for a while, so I took advantage of this situation by painting as much as possible!
