Some more paint-sketches

A couple of paint-sketches. Playing with texture and ink and watercolor pencils. Both these mini paintings can be found at my etsy shop.

I think this must be an act of defiance against the allergies that have been plaguing me with particular vengeance this year. I've even gone so far as to string a vine up above my desk as I painted this little piece today: some olfactory inspiration as well as visual (when I can pause to appreciate it in between sneezes).

Really though, the scent of jasmine is amazing. It is delicate without being overwhelming. Our yard is full of it, climbing across all the fences. When they bloom, it practically envelopes the entire house with a blanket of the sweet perfume. I love it.

Anyway, just a quick little piece today. Playing around with watercolor pencils as well as some other random paints and things I found tucked away in a box.

Green Gate Progress

Remember this sketch? Yeah I know. I barely remember it too.
Finally getting a chance to pick up where I left off with it though and start to paint. It's kind of a matching piece to Firefly Hunters, so the colors will be similar.

Over 100 pieces of artwork from the past 10 years are included in this full color volume. Tarot pieces are not included, since those can be found in their entirety in my other books. Here's a peek inside:
