New brother and sister custom painting!

Here is a new custom painting I have just finished today. It's of a brother and sister from the same family I did a large painting of.
I have quite a few custom paintings to be done but I am finding it it hard to find the time to fit them in.
The children are only at school for a few hours and often come home from school to a house covered in paint and bits of paper sprawled everywhere and I often turn up at school covered in paint and glue because I have left it to the last minute to leave the house!!!

New Custom Family Portrait Painting

Hi everyone, I'm back from my holidays and ready to go back to being creative!! I actually really missed it but did visit some nice art galleries whilst away for a bit of inspiration! The prices in the galleries were quite pricey though so no purchases were made!!
We all had a lovely time and the children had fun body boarding in Cornwall although the weather was typically British and it was at times quite chilly, next year we shall go somewhere hot!!

New Mixed Media Portrait Painting - Dream

This the second of my two new original paintings. This one is titled 'Dream'.
I had a disaster with a portrait I was doing on this piece of wood so I decided to just scrap it and paint over it with this distressed peach background and then painted the girls face on top of the background kind of the opposite way to what I usually do which would be to sketch and draw out the face first then paint it and then add the background but this was so much easier I think it will turn out to be one of those things where something goes terribly wrong but you end up learning from it and maybe working out a new way of doing things!

Dream is up for sale in my etsy shop!

New Abstract Collage Flower Painting

Here is a new addition to my flower series, Flowers 5!

Love the colours of this one! Background was really fun to do went through many different shades before finishing this way!!!

Available to buy in my etsy shop!

Portrait Girl with Flowers and Butterflies Painitng

Here is my new original painting, it's titled Flourish.
It was a long and difficult journey finishing this painting and it almost ended up being thrown away as at one point it didn't seem to be going how I wanted it to but in the end here it is and I am happy with the finished result. So I guess perseverance paid off!! I love working on wood as it is so much easier to change and go over areas that you are unhappy with without damaging the painting!

Custom Family Painting
