Goodbye November! December Plans

Allow me to share artwork from the final week and a half of November.

I allowed myself to take a little break and re-evaluate my goals for 2018. I made an outline for the first half with a goal of not too many classes but a steady improving of my art.

Here’s what I drew in the end of November:

  1. Pastel: I took a break from soft pastels and only had an oil pastel practice (see all on instagram under #greenrainartoilpastel). Just one drawing.

poppy is one of my favorite colors

PLANS: To continue with my soft and oil pastel practice, incorporating it into my illustrations

2.Sketchflashmob is finished for this year (see #greenrainartfromlife  for all my works) I still haven’t done the prompt with pumpkin, so I will go back to that. The final prompt was to draw a tree decoration, and I chose a homemade ornament my daughter made

I love how she put the penguin into the car

PLANS: I hope to continue with this practice on my own until the next challenge is announced.

3. For 52 weeks of illustration I drew some pencils and a chameleon

this one was a special joy to draw, they are such interesting animals

PLANS: I have a few more prompts to complete this year and already looking forward to the next!

4. My fabric proofs have arrived from Spoonflower. I already made a little towel out of one cut and looking forward to making a few more (although I am no seamstress and it’s mostly “give to family” type of sewing work), I sure am glad Roostery makes towels so those that want to get one don’t have to go through me and my rusty skills.

I also made a pattern for the hygge challenge

all things hygge

PLANS: To continue with both designing patterns and sewing things.

5. I drew a few birds as a part of second attempt at MATS Home Decor class that I am continuing on my own.

want to put all these on pillows!

PLANS: Will slowly work through MATS Home Dec throughout December and will have one more trend board to work on in 2018.

Other plans: Will participate in a couple of advent challenges, looking forward to making more art with kids as well.

Have a lovely December!
