No Stamp Beauties

The following are more music box photos...#3 and #4. These two are different from my normal stamps! I put my mojo into drawing and then painting these two. I used watercolor paper that I drew on and them painted with Acrylics and Twinkling H2Os.

This first one is a Ruffled Iris. I love purple so of course this flower had to have purple hues. I outlined it with Pomegranate and used Rubilite, Mulberry and Purple Sage with Pink Crocus and Apple Blossom. The leaves used greens and grays with Hint of Cocoa.

This lighthouse scene is from my Childhood. We used to visit lighthouses and covered bridges all the time. My Dad was an oil artist who loved the bridges and lighthouses of the Maritimes of Canada.

I am pleased with these and I am having Medical Issues that need me to be focused on something so drawing is what I am working on. It is certainly a lot slower than stamping and probably not as great but hey...they are originals.

Talk later
