Day 12 of Thirty Paintings in 30 days! I am submitting a little ink work I finished today, with the hopeful promise of more acrylic paintings in the next few days.
This (startled?) maiden is one in a series of art cards I have made to advertise (and trade in) an art card swap I am hosting at illustratedatcs.com, loosely based around fancy costume from various European eras (Victorian, Renaissance, Tudor). Normally the swap limit is six trades, but I usually make more as the months go by toward the deadline.
As you can see, I’m a bit obsessed with fancy hats. (Though based loosely on hats from the various eras, the hats are mostly from my crazy brain.) (Click to enlarge, if you like.)
If you are visiting from the painting challenge and are disappointed this is not a painting, you can see the orange hound in acrylics from yesterday, including LOADS of progress pics which demonstrate why my beginner skills are not quite able to handle an acrylic painting per day (but maybe January 2015)! Thanks for stopping in!
How fun is this, am going to chck your swap as I love ACEOs and might get in on the action. Gonna look more
Lovely work! Really like your color schemes in those eight little paintings. Thank you for stopping by my blog!
Oh, I really, really like all these maidens. The outfits, the hats, the designs are all superb!
Hi Cindy, Love your blog!!! I am going to spend some time and look at all your fabulous pen and ink creations! I am falling behind on my 30 paintings in 30 days. I have one on e the easel now. Hopefully it will turn out!! BTW, thanks so much for your comment!
I think ink paintings count! These are fabulous. I love all those crazy hats! Great job!
The Renaissance-like costumes work well with your detailed style. Nice designs.
