The Morrigan by talis13
The Morrigan
Tombow pencil and Prismacolor color pencil on a large illustration board! Title comes from the Morrigan in Celtic mythology, which is the diety who can change from an old woman to a lovely lady. The catch is she is usually seen at the riverside crying as she washes blood out of a warriors clothes. Catch being it's usually YOUR clothes. Neat myth.  The reference photo came from cherrybomb-81, in particular, this one, which is lovely! :) <da:thumb id="394279542"> 
Thanks for taking a look!

Big Ghengis
My husband titled it. :D This is a drawing finished in pencil. He'll be going with me to the Ashville Viking Festival! I'll be donating a large print of this one too, to their silent auction for the local food bank. Anyway, stats- it's a large piece- approximately 30"x24" finished on Rives Heavyweight drawing paper with Tombow drafting pencils. The reference photo came from Lormet-Images, in particular this one- Lormet Renaissance0255
I'm pretty sure her stock images are pretty much the best things on DA. Seriously. Check them out!! :)
Christmas Bows by talis13
Christmas Bows
This piece's reference was provided by a photo from Color Pencil Magazine for one of their monthly challenges: so the photo is copyright released. I didn't make the deadline to compete, but I am SUPER happy with this drawing. I've never drawn anything shiny before so let's say it was a challenge. It's a large piece at 14"x17" completed in Prismacolor color pencils on Recycled Smooth Bristol. 
Veggies2sm by talis13
Second in a series of vegetable and fruit arrangements. This one was also finished in color pencil on art board. Smaller than my norm- it's only about 6"x9". :)
Redhead by talis13
A pencil and color pencil piece! I had such a good time drawing this one- it's relatively large too which is even better. :) Stock photo reference came from magikstock , in particular, this photo- Red preview
Thanks in advance for looking! :)

Hi everyone!
  Just an update on the spring art festivals I did! I had SUCH a great time at them! I just did 4 each weekend the first weekends this month. It was awesome just getting my artwork out again! I got great feedback and picked up some extra work! I have another set of artwork I'm working on to do some fall and winter shows before Christmas. I think I'm going to do more of the kitchen/food type drawings for those- I'm looking more at craft/art shows for that versus straight art festivals (at least through the holiday season- prints are easier to do of those!). I'm super excited to be doing this- it's such an awesome learning experience! I keep changing my booth and developing it as I figure out what's ugly and what's working. :D Slowly, but surely, my friends, slowly but surely...
 Anyway, hope everyone's had a nice spring into early summer~!
