My First ACEO's

It's been nearly 20 years since I picked up a paint brush (excepting home decorating that is!) and I finally got around to buying some new oils, I have had a brilliant day just painting totally selfish I know but family has been visited the turkey is thawing, the pressies are wrapped all have to do now is lay the table.

Here they are from initial sketch to finished painting (well they still need a bit of touching up in places but they have to dry properly first before I can add anymore paint).



Would love some feedback I have no idea how much to list them for they have taken between 1 and 2 hours each and are painted in Oil

Thanks for looking and Merry Christmas

December Elves - Baby it's cold outside

It's absolutely freezing, I have 9-12 inch icicles hanging off my roof, which look a bit dangerous but very beautiful to me, if it's light when I get home I might be able to take pics.
I managed to get a bit of last minute shopping in yesterday on the way home, carrying bags in this weather is not a good idea the tips of my fingers were frozen despite wearing 2 pairs of gloves, they were almost blue with cold! So my blog today is all blue, but try to think Warm Blue Med instead of Ice Cold Blue! or you might be shivering and teeth chattering, by the time you have seen all these lovelies from the December Elves!
