Girl and a Frog – my very first painting on canvas!!!

Started this on Saturday and finished it yesterday. This is heavily inspired by two lovely ladies, namely Suzi Blu and Miss Wonderful Tam!! Their videos and art have inspired me so much and without them I probably wouldn’t have made this big step of working on canvas! Thank you!

Materials used: Acrylic paints, watersoluble oil pastels, watercolour pencils, water colours, craft papers, foam, rubs ons and probably more but I can’t remember right now!!

You can click each picture for a bigger version.

For my next piece I’ve got this idea of a girl on a swing. I’m so motivated and inspired right now and I’m loving it!

Let me know if you have an art blog/website so I can link you!

  1. This is so pretty!

    I love how you manage to create something that looks so complete with mixed media, i’m hopeless at that. It just looks messy, but you combine your materials so well 🙂

    (i linked my deviantART in the website part, but i also have a creative journal, where i put writing and other art, mostly new techniques in photoshop, but other sketches i’ve done as well, not on DA)

    Iris: Thank you! I am trying to be more ‘messy’ in my art actually. Because messy actually looks really good. I try to be more adventurous and think outside the box! But it’s hard. I linked your LJ art blog, it’s great!

  2. It is wonderful, I love it! It’s so playful, your style and the materials compliment each other so well!

    Iris: Thanks Ay! I really appreciate your comments! And your art inspires me a lot too!

  3. hi there,

    crafty in italy

    Iris: I’m living in Holborn (near the British Museum) right now, and I’m loving it! That’s so exciting that you live in Italy, that must be wonderful!
