Hello Sailor! – New Art

fantasy

Good news, today I’m going to introduce you to some new animal art! Huzzah! I did this little illustrative piece a couple of weeks ago and it’s featuring one of my favourite characters that I’ve created…Sammy Seal. Here she is in all of her glory:

Sammy Seal features in a childrens book that I wrote titled, ‘Peter Penguins Red Balloon’, yes it is as exciting as it sounds. It was a gift for my first niece’s first Christmas. You can see the original Sammy Seal in my digital paintings section as part of my gallery, together with the beautiful Peter Penguin himself! Expect him to return very shortly, as I am busy creating a few special things for Christmas time. It may be only the start of September, but there’s a lot to get done, I’m hoping to attend a few craft fairs, so, of course, I need some brand new stock!

The Mermaid

A few weeks ago I posted a blog about a mermaid painting that I started, now I still haven’t finished it as I have been busy with other projects, however, I thought I’d share how it’s coming a long…so here she is….(that’s right a double whammy of exciting art!)

She still needs a lot of work, but I hope to have her finished soon, I may print the digital version and work into it traditionally – I love this technique, as I adore both traditional and digital techniques…plus it makes things a little more exciting! I really want to give this painting have an eerie, magical feeling, with the way that she is staring with that watch, I don’t think that will be too difficult, do you?

Anyway, I shall leave you with this, I hope you like it. You can view more art at my website and if you would like more information either comment below or send me an email at geowen89@gmail.com.
