free time!

around 70-80% of my free time (mornings, evenings, days off, etc) is spent being artistic in SOME capacity. days where i’m not painting with acrylics, i’m drawing in my sketchbook, playing with watercolours, or ink pens. days where i’m not visually artistic in some way, i’ve likely been doing creative writing, or perhaps out with my camera. my absolute favorite, though, are sunny days off with wide open windows and a large blank canvas in front of me. heaven!

i’ve been practicing drawing more natural elements, such as animals, and so far owls have been one of my favourites! here’s a brightly coloured barn owl that i’ve been working on. it’s taking more time then normal, but i’m enjoying her so far! what’s your favourite animal to paint? let me know!

finished!

this is a 24×36″ acrylic on canvas with a gel matte finish! The finish is new, and makes it feel so fancy (to me, anyways). i have plans to properly photograph this with my dslr, so here’s an iphone pic to enjoy in the meantime!
