fairy cookery

I made this for my favorite cousin (I have more than one...) Katie, who was just married yesterday. I didn't have a lot of time so this took 2-3 hours, if I had more time I might have done a little more with it. But as it is, I like how it turned out. It has strawberry hair just like my cousin's, I thought it would be a nice match. It is watercolor with inked outlines. I did washes and splatters on the paper so it would look like an aged and faded cookbook.

extra! extra... windy

Sorry, I haven't posted in a month, but I will repent! ...maybe... Here is a painting I did at the end of last semester. The assignment was to a partially obscured figure. I wanted to do something a little comical and so this was my final choice. I borrowed my brother's trench coat and got my husband to pose for me. It wasn't windy the day I did the photo shoot, so I taped the newspaper around his head and found other reference for flying newspapers and flying scarves and coats (or skirts, what ever would get me the look I wanted). I like how it turned out. Below is a study (also last semester) I did in two three hour classes (don't worry the model had breaks). I really enjoy doing models in costume.
