Sun Flowers

My most recent painting of figures. Gouache and acrylic on watercolor paper. I’m happy with how vibrant this piece turned out. I wanted the background to look more painterly so I layered down different yellows and oranges of gouache paint. Originally I did not have the blue sky in this painting. The top was just additional yellow. It was a little to much yellow in the piece, so I covered it in blue sky. The sky complemented the yellow and orange well. Two small clouds I added to make it more sky-like. I hope to get a few more paintings underway soon. Maybe so fall inspired things.

Birthday Cards

Many jazzy birthday presents

Here are a few birthday cards I did for a greeting card portfolio I have been working on.
The first two are for little kids, and then I did one more for adults.
I did these in gouache and digital color. All have hand drawn types.
