For all the items in my shop, I design them in the computer, cut them out of wood with the laser and then I hand paint them. This video shows my process for hand painting them.
I've always like the painting "Son of Man" by Rene Magritte. I don't know much about the painting or the painter. But I wanted to painting something for my husband, and this popped into my head. I painted this a couple of years ago and it still makes me giggle.
Here is the original
I signed up for a SketchBox subscription and had some fun with watercolor. I've never been a big fan before since there is no undo button, and it's a bit harder to fix mistakes. With acrylic paint, you just wait for it to dry and then paint over it. But I have to say, I had a lot of fun with these. It came with water color pencils, plus my Mom had given me some watercolor markers for Christmas. I've been doodling away.
