‘Dakota the Dragon’ 20 progression photos

Hi everyone! Good evening, hope you are all well 🙂 The latest blog post is 20 progression photos of an amateur acrylic painting. I’ve kept with the fantasy theme and painted a dragon/castle, hope you like 🙂

I used my art therapy books as inspiration. Dakota and the castle are quite similar colours, with fluffy white clouds in the blue background; I love their effect. I’m pretty pleased with how it’s turned out, as is only my amateur second acrylic attempt. Hopefully the more I practise, the more I’ll improve! Here is the finished piece:

Coming soon, maybe more fantasy/fairy inspired tale acrylic paintings (mermaids, witches, fairies etc) or a gigantic wolf crystal diamond art I bought from the Range, or excitingly, upcycled furniture as I am beginning volunteering as a furniture refurbisher for the Children’s Air Ambulance this week! 🙂 🙂

Thank you so much for reading /viewing!

Thoughts with the the people of Ukraine, and hope of a world free from war and atrocity.

Many thanks, Lauren xx

‘Uma the Unicorn’ acrylic painting

Hi fellow bloggers! My latest blog post is progression photos of an original, art therapy book inspired, (amateur) fantasy acrylic painting, Uma the Unicorn 🦄 Hope you enjoy!

This is my first proper go at acrylics in like a decade, ha! It’s not the greatest – she’s not in proportion and looks either a bit chubby around the middle or heavily pregnant lol – but it’s a start. I am hoping the quality of my painting will improve as I practise, and get back to the professional standard it was many moons ago.

Here is the finished art work:

I have an additional 4 canvas pannel boards I bought from the Range, so I think for my next acrylic paintings I’ll keep to the mythical / fantasy theme; haunted castle, dragons, mermaids, fairies etc or perhaps animals or sea life, I have a fair few art therapy books to gain inspiration from 🙂 🙂

So please, keep a look-out, and thank you so much for reading / viewing 🙂 🙂

Much love, Lauren xxxx
