Mix and Match ...

As you will soon learn, I enjoy doing anything which is a bit arty! 

I thought I'd start with a project I did a while back! I really enjoy drawing/painting the human figure/face mainly because of the intricate detail and individuality of each person - it makes things much more interesting! I like to set myself a difficult task...and with being a perfectionist (very annoying at times) I like to ensure I paint/draw every little bit of detail I see! 

The two facial images are done with pencil crayon and the other have been painted using acrylic paint! I really enjoyed creating all these pieces as the textures and colours of elderly skin create a big visual impact, especially with the hands and the transparency of the skin, showing through the vibrantly coloured veins.

Let me know what you think, any comments are appreciated :)

Starting out....

So, Hi everyone! Thought I would start blogging to share with everyone 'my creative life' hence the blog name (La Vida Creativa - the same but in Spanish ha!). I will be posting a variety of things I enjoy doing in my spare time such as my paintings, nail art and any other little bits of design. I hope you enjoy my work and give me a cheeky follow if you do! :)
