Christmas Paintings!

Hello! I hope you’re week has gotten off to a good start.

I’ve spent the morning uploading Christmas paintings to my shop and couldn’t wait to share them with you, they’re so cute! It does feel a little early for Christmas stuff to me but I had a few days when I was in a holiday mood and painted these small gnome paintings.

Head over to my shop to see the full versions!

I’m also selling these cute gift tags with golden wooden pegs… I’ve also used these myself to decorate some gift wrapping examples that I’ll be sharing with you later in the week.

I think I’ll spend the rest of today painting, I have so much to do! Have a good Monday!

old painting: Passion Flower

This is an old painting of mine, actually about 4 years old! I love the colours and the blurry background. Hope you like it 🙂

new painting! ‘Wisteria in Lutry’

‘Wisteria in Lutry’ was painted from a photo I took in a nearby village called Lutry. These little village houses overlook the lake and are surely some of the most beautiful homes around here! I would certainly love to live in one!

They have pretty little gardens in front and lots and lots of wisteria. I love wisteria and its pretty colours!

 

This is actually an acrylic painting on thick watercolour paper. The sheet of paper measures 28 x 37 cm (11″ x 15″) and the painting itself measures 21 x 21 cm (8″ x 8″).

If you are interested in the process of this painting, take a look at following slideshow! I started off drawing a rough sketch with pencil. Then I painted the background wall colour, the shadows and then the details. I painted the plants last and they were the most challenging since I have very little practice painting plants! Well, luckily I didn’t mess it up and it all turned out well.

So well actually that I have decided to keep the original. However, I will be selling prints soon… I’m getting an amazing printer in two weeks time… can’t wait!

What do you think? Could this be the prettiest village on earth?
