The Princess Violet was a difficult sheep child, a source of rarely ending exasperation for Fiona, her governess. When feeling particularly cheeky or impatient with her studies, Violet would sing little songs about a wise old fruit seller called Fiona Riona Bologna who sometimes played matchmaker to a succession of curious characters in a small Italian village.
Copic marker art cards for Paint Party Friday. Thanks for dropping in!
Beautiful work!!! I can tell how exasperated Fiona is!!! Have a great weekend!!!
Wow this is an amazing piece of art. Well done
What fun! I want to know more about the”difficult sheep child” because her portrait is wonderful! Her poor governess, she looks so very weary of it all:)
Poor Fiona! She looks so tired! They are both adorably sweet as usual :D
Fiona Riona Bologna! You are hysterical. It’s the perfect name for the perfect dog!
Hahahaha, oh dear Cindy, your fun ideas and whimsy-wonderfulness are both never-ending! Fiona Riona Bologna indeed. I love the repetition of altered squares in the background and shirt of first and lines in the 2nd. Did you plan that or does such things just flow out without having to think about it?
I’ve been trying to add more in the way of backgrounds. Thank you for noticing! Sometimes it gets sketched but usually it’s the last thing. :)
Love the personalities on the faces of these characters….just adorable! Love the colors too!! Happy art here!! Love it!!
Love the story. And the expression in their eyes. So many wonderful details …
Wonderful and humorous imagination! I love the story and am curious to here more of it. Violet and Fiona look like quite the characters. The repeated patterns and lines are delightful. It is really neat how you showed the steps. What did you use to create the “video”? Thanks for making me smile and for sharing!
Thank you! The slideshow is a free WordPress Plugin called “Portfolio Slideshow”. I’ve been using it for ages and it does a nice job. :)
Wonderful colors and details! I love all the purple shades and blends in both…….fun names too!
Oh neat! You make copics looks amazing. I LOVE your work and your stories. Thanks for sharing your work. :)
Beautiful styling and cool to see the stages of your art!
It seems Fiona needs a rest…
Fiona is sporting beautiful purple eye shadow. Your herd would look great on a deck of playing cards….
