Fox Fur(s)

Fox Furs! Somehow images of Foxy Fox in a 20s Fox Fur Opera coat came to mind (Yes, I realize how disturbing this kinda is, hehe). I love her spit curls and the coat's fluff!

Orange flowers and a Birdie

More practice with watercolors!

Downton Abbey Sketch

I finally got onto the Downton Abbey bandwagon! I realize I am years late. I have been trying to gesture draw from it as I've been working through the show. This one has been a favorite so far.

Blue Japanese Maples Leaves

I've been trying to take the time and paint more. I used watercolor for these pretty momiji (Japanese maple) leaves, inspired by the pretty colors of fall. Practice, practice, practice!

Maiko/Geiko Sketches

The Maiko and Geiko of Kyoto are an never-ending source of inspiration for me. I love everything about them; their clothing and how every little thing they wear has significance, the bright colors, the sacrifice they make to preserving some of the traditional Japanese arts. I find myself idly sketching them when I feel myself having a creative block.
I love the Wysteria tsumami kanzashi (flower hairpins).
Geiko speed paint. I like the expression in the eyes.
