Christmas is upon us!

Well Christmas is upon us and i will be taken up by family celebrations for the next week or so. So there will be no art for me, i am hoping to do a little after boxing day but lets see what i get to. It will be the first christmas celebrating as a family of four so i plan to enjoy it. Will post again more art hopefully soon.

OHNO! my bucket:(

*CRY* Max moved my painting from the table to the floor in order to get to the computer. I left it there as i was busy doing things and Willy wasnt awake and forgot about it. Will got up and was busy going for a crawl and crawled in and look at my painting !!! :( I think i can glue it back but i wasnt finished there !!! so its not going to do me much good ..... *CRY* its my own fault but arghhhhh

Gracie's mirror

Still no more on the bucket yet, but i have been working on another mirror as a Chrismas present for Gracie for her 1st Christmas. Its a little simpler than my previous ones but i like it like that. You cant see it well in this photo but I had lots of trouble getting the hair to look right for dark hair, its raining outside today so i will take a better pic hopefully later. :) I still have another one to go for Will, but i have just simply run out of time in the lead up to chrismas so he will have to get it for his birthday. I likely wont be doing much for the next few weeks we have a very hectic next few weeks of christmas and then we have Max's 3rd birthday in January so its likely i wont get much done. Will try tho ! A mothers work is never done :)

Bucket update

Here is another bucket update. I have kinda been struggling with the colours on the shadows but i think we are getting there. The highlights i would like to get alot brighter but i am reaching the threshold with the layers and paper so i might just have to live with what i have got. I still have a ways to go all over but we are getting there.

I have had lots of comments on the forums regarding the hands and how they are bigger than they should be because of the distortion of the camera lens. But i dont mind the bigger hands in this instance i think they add to the character of the work :) The only thing i find annoying about this is now all i see when i look at it is the hands !!!! But i do think it kinda works if you ignore that .... i have lots of projects to finish for christmas so i am trying to get this one done otherwise if i put it down i wont pick it up again :)

But in saying that i am enjoying doing the portrait on dark paper i think i will definately give it another go :)
