Paintings,Sketches and New Seeds

paintings..sketches and new seeds

Still In progress...
Brigid's Flame
Amber Golden Moon warmed by her Flame
Hair turns to auburn
green washes through her gown
Her Fleshtones: light washes & glazes of acrylics
..and some gesso
more details to do..
Sometimes I love those Quiet hours..near candlelight( a romantic at heart)
filling in the little details..like ripples of hair..

I love to see a piece slowly transform..
a gentle spirit you are getting to know
an intimate soulful experience..

She is coming along..


these are new seeds..quick , simple sketches..maybe they will turn into paintings..
very rough..but still fun to imagine them more completed..

A Nature Spiritess , A Guardian of the Faery Realm..
Nature adorns her head,  seed earing
and wing drapes near her face

and a Vintage-style-Lady of spirit and soul..
intune with her gifts

They are simple sketches for now..soon to bloom

Thanks for visiting..
Happy Creating

Wow! She is beautiful! She has a very sweet face. Your sketches are wonderful also! My simple and quick sketches don't look like that.....you are super talented! Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy PPF!

Ilona said...

Finally I reached your post ;-)

I think your spiritual ladies are beautiful. Still I like your "simple" drawings very much, as for me they have the pureness I very much like in art.

Thank you for visiting my blog and the kind words you left for me.

Wish you good spirit and have great week end!

The Brigid painting is really unfolding beautifully, Victoria. I love the gentleness seen on her face. And the new sketches/potential paintings are great. You have such a wonderful ability to draw as well as put paint to the faces. Have a super weekend.

Hi Victoria, always love visiting your blog...you have a way of lifting my spirits. Thank you... :)

Rosa Viñas said...

Hola Victoria, son preciosos tus dibujos y tus pinturas, me trasmiten serenidad y vibraciones muy buenas, tu pintura está llena de luz. Los bocetos que nos enseñas son encantadores por si mismos, y con tu inspiración que surge de los más hondo de tu interior se convierten en pinturas extraordinarias.

Un fuerte abrazo, amiga.

Alexandra said...

Hi Victoria. It's so good to see you again. Do you know what is odd? I feel this "connection" with you, like a long, lost sister or something. hee :) I love your paintings, your space, your supplies. It's beautiful and definitely represents you! Hugs

PS I STILL can't get over your portal painting that reminds me so much of Van Gogh. I don't suppose you'd part with a print to hang on my inspiration wall? Email me, if so.

Love ya!

Enejy clemens said...

Love your work, and your new seed are gorgeous!!! I can't wait to see the end result.

have a great day!

Hello Victoria, I love you sketches very much. I like how you work with portraits and both with fantasy, how you tell the stories through your paintings. Brigid´s flame becomes prettier and prettier. I like the look of her eyes.

Elaine Vasconcellos said...

Beautiful sketches perfect as they are...love visiting you here and feeling so inspired and recharged with the art, the mystical feeling and the beauty of semi-precious stones...
