Happy Tuesday everyone!
Lots of traveling for me this week, so I am posting earlier in the day today and on Thursday. Hopefully this doesn’t mess with everyone’s schedule! I am also holding back on the lizard prints until next week as it is harder for me to get them all setup on the schedule I am working for this client. I apologize about the pause if you were really looking forward to more adorable lizards!
I have this beautiful fake plant in my home office, and in it I stuck my friend’s butterfly ornament that she designed this past year. It really is beautiful, and I like being able to look at it. I really really wanted to draw it and give it a little of my flair.
So I did! In the program i use (infinite painter) there are tons of water color brushes that I have never used. I don’t know if I was worried about using them or if I am too much of a control freak to do water colors normally, but I decided to give them a chance.
That would be what caused me the most struggle with this piece. Wasn’t drawing out each leaf as I wanted or redesigning the butterfly so that it looks like it landed on the mini shrub. It was 100% figuring out how the brushes worked.
I really like the end design though, and I plan on using more of the brushes that I have shied away from in the past.
I didn’t really work on this with all of you in mind, but I would like to share it with you if you would like it printed on something, as I do with almost all of my work now.
Until next time, safe travels and good luck on all of your endeavors,
