The Storms Poster!!

I've made a poster of my storms series! It is available in my Zazzle shop!

I bought one myself to see how they look, and it looks great. Below is a picture. Sorry for it being a bit dark.

I'm still working on my "Rose Garden" painting, but I should be done soon. I'm at least half way done! :)

Rose Garden WIP

Here is a little preview of the painting I'm working on. I wasn't entirely sure what I was going to do with it at first, that's why the roses aren't in the sketch. I got the inspiration for those after I transferred the sketch and then drew them in. I had originally had more of a golden color scheme in mind, but since I also want her to be a bit gothy, I wasn't entirely sure how to make that work with the golden colors I had in mind. So I'll save that color scheme for another time. I also thought about making it a sort of sunset/blues color scheme, but decided against it since I've done a lot of blue colors lately. Now I've decided on some more rosy colors, but a bit muted. I like them so far. :)

The Storms: Tornado

Here is the last in the series. I hope that everyone has enjoyed them. This is my favorite of the three, I think. I was going for that unstable green color, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. :)

I feel very productive since I got each in this series done one after the other. I'm usually kind of bad at series since I get distracted by other ideas. It really helped to sketch all these out first before painting them!

Watercolor and white goauche. 9 x 12"

Here's all three of them together:

The Storms: Lightning

*Edit* I went back and fixed some things the best I could, so ignore the paragraph below. :)

I finished the next one! This lightning one gave me trouble right from the beginning with the sketch. I like how it turned out, and it looks a LOT better in person than on the computer, but I think that I like the rain one better. There are still some issues with this one that bother me. I'm tempted to go back and tweak a couple of things. I may do that still...

Anyway, she's done in Watercolor and white goauche. 9 x 12"
