It's been eight months since my cross-country move back to California, and I'm only just now beginning to unpack art supplies and find my creative groove again.
Now that I've got a physical space dedicated to making, I'm eager to start taking commissions and finally feel excited about diving back into my own projects.
First up: Cabbage roses and a pair of sweet mourning doves.
I've really been enjoying taking colored pencils to my stamp proofs. It's a fun and therapeutic way to experiment and gets me excited for future watercolor washes and digital designs.
Fun tip: After coloring with pencil, rub your piece with a lightly oiled Q-Tip. It adds a nice sheen, blends the colors seamlessly, and really makes the picture pop.
