Sunday Sketches Day 17 (Angel Snow-globe)


We're quickly winding down to just a week until Christmas! This week I wanted to share with you an illustration of a snow-globe that's been in my family for quite some time now. Admittedly, I almost tossed it out as I didn't really like how it looked when I finished painting it. After a few hours of "editing" it in Photoshop, then adding the snow within the globe, I'm now SO in love with this finished illustration.

Happy Sunday! I'm looking forward to cozying up on the sofa with a cup of tea in hand, to see what everyone has been up to this past week. Are you ready for Christmas?

  3. I think you did the right thing to edit it. And to ad the snow. It is now, IMO, a masterpiece :) Love it.

  4. I never would have guessed this wasn't perfect from the start. Sometimes walking away for a while is the best thing I can do for a painting, come back, and it's not nearly as horrible as I thought at first.

  7. An angel with a happy spirit ... I have to agree with you, it is a lovable snow globe. It is freezing here and the snow is deep, so staying inside is the smart thing to do ... and a cup of tea? Who could pass that up? :) Have a good week Alexandra (Does anybody call you Alex?).
