A Fairy Tale – Work in Progress

 

sleeping beauty fairy tale work in progress wip heather carrHere’s another painting that I have in the works. It’s Death carrying off Sleeping Beauty, or Snow White, or Juliet… insert poisoned/cursed/bewitched princess here. The prince/knight/star-crossed lover has just discovered her…  This one is pretty big. It’s being painted on un-stretched canvas. When it is finished I will mount it on a board.

Pour Life Choices

A friend, who was making a tiny batch of wine, asked if I could create a label for his bottles. As someone who appreciates wine, I couldn’t resist the opportunity! ;) While discussing design possibilities, I found out that he had a friend (who would be receiving some of the bottles), who is a huge Harry Potter fan… which was perfect, because so am I! He calls his wine Pour Life Choices. Hmmmm… Slytherins are all about poor life choices, so Harry Potter seemed to be the perfect theme.  I only wish I could have worked Severus Snape into the picture… **swoon**  <3

This was a pencil drawing that I colored and manipulated in Photoshop. I was happy for the opportunity to do more digital work.  I’m enjoying learning how to make Photoshop work for me…

(p.s. Just to be clear, this was not a commercial endeavor… Sadly, these are not for sale. It was just a personal project. :) )

Hand Drawn Animation Practice

There is a song that I have been drawing animations for, in my head, for months!  I want to tackle animating it soon, but I need more practice first. Above is my second attempt at hand drawn animation using a stop motion animation app on my phone. I only had time to complete the first verse of the song so far, but I like how it turned out, considering I’m just learning – and there is a lot to learn! I think I’ll keep working on it.

The song is The Kite Song, by Rosie Thomas. It’s really lovely! I highly recommend purchasing it! :)

Oh, tie me to the end of a kite
So I can go on, I can go on with my life
And every marigold I pass below will be my guiding light
I just want to go away from here

Oh, tie me to the end of a kite
So I can go and I can go on with my life
And every time the wind blows stronger I will feel my spirit rise
I just want to go away from here

Oh, tie me ever tightly by your side
So I may go with you wherever you reside
And anytime the road looks dimmer I will be your guiding light
I just want to go away with you

I just want to go away with you
