Basic Techniques for Watercolor Crayons

How to Watercolor Crayons PDF

This is just a little video showing you different ways to use watercolor crayons :artsy:

In other news, I added the Hearts Enchanted archive to Etsy since a few people written me with an interest in purchasing. So if you are into pixels, and never had a membership, hop in over there to pick it up if you like =)

I have been under the weather, mood-wise the past month. It’s been super cold and super wet and super gray and I just haven’t felt up to much arting. icon sad How to: Watercolor Crayons

Fortunately, Lady Spring has finally won over Father Winter so the sun is out, the air is warm and I am a happy girl again :love:

So expect more frequent blogs my friend! Thank you for visiting!

Speed Art Journal – Practice Makes Perfect… Almost!

Speed Art Journal #2

Making these videos is as fun as I expected it to be!!!

A thumbs up, comment, share and/or subscribe are all highly appreciated! http://www.youtube.com/user/FaeryInkArt/ :love:

Originally, I thought I would do two faces so I could get double the practice on those skin tones, however the second face went wonky from the very beginning and I decided I did not care to bother with it. I love how the hair came out though. Very loose and flowy. I think the next art journal I do will be more art journally and less facey. I don’t want to get burned out. You may have noticed I failed the 29faces challenge. /sigh…

See you in September 29faces… Perhaps I will be more consistent then… icon sad Speed Art Journal   Practice Makes Perfect... Almost!

I should also mention how much I really appreciate that Kevin MacLeod at http://www.incompetech.com so generously permits his music to be used. I love his World genre so much. Some of it just takes your breath away…

I hope you enjoy the video! :love:

Speed Art Journal – Here Comes the Sun

Yay! A Speed Art Journal!

I made my first art vlog! It is a speed art journal in which I call forth the sun :artsy:

I wanted to play with some new brushes and get some flesh tones practice in. I thought I would record it because making videos has always looked like fun to me…

Check it out!

I wish I would’ve started recording my process much sooner.

I have learned so much just seeing the steps I take.

Often I have finished a painting and had to wonder what I could’ve done differently to improve it. After seeing the process in this video I can tell exactly where I should’ve stopped or done something differently.

For instance, the last couple layers I added to her flesh basically removed all the depth I’d created with the blue and purples. I didn’t realize it as I was doing it, but looking at the process I can see very clearly what I did there.

I will definitely be doing more of these so I hope you enjoy them! icon smile Speed Art Journal   Here Comes the Sun

I also did a little buddha journal a couple weeks ago that I didn’t get around to sharing here:

buddha 300x300 Speed Art Journal   Here Comes the Sunbuddha2 300x300 Speed Art Journal   Here Comes the Sunbuddha3 300x300 Speed Art Journal   Here Comes the Sun

So true!

In other news, I can’t wait for spring to get here already! Me and cold weather are bitter foes I must say. I have trouble keeping my chin up when the weather gets cold and the sun hides so much. How are you faring in your part of the world??
