I blog at http://paintedheartstudio.blogspot.com/ where I post portrait sketches and other bits.
I joined Alaw in 2010 and have enjoyed it so much. It's a wonderful thing, having a few 'rules' to work within. One thing I've learned in recent years: I am more effective and productive when I work within parameters. Too many choices can be paralyzing!
The image above is my first letter from 2011's Black & White with a touch of blue texture.
I began with hand sketched gothic letters, painted lightly with black watercolor, I added the texture somewhat randomly to break up the shape, yet leave it legible.
I'm ready for 2012-looking forward to creating more letters and seeing what everyone else comes up with.
