Merry Christmas card by jane-beata
Merry Christmas card
I wanted to make 3 designs this year, barely had time for one :( I was thinking a lot about what Christmas means to me and whether it's really necessary to go through all that stress during December like every year, because what I would really wish for are no presents but more time to spend with my daughter, just drawing or baking ginger bread. Hope I'm going to be able to create the most wonderful holiday for her :)

In case you still need an original Christmas present for your beloveds, here's a couple of artworks still available on ETSY or throw me a note and order a personal commission :heart:

▲ This artwork was painted in watercolor (Schmincke Horadam) on 300g cold-pressed paper
▲ Cards are available on ETSY

Simple watercolor tutorial: Eye study by jane-beata
Simple watercolor tutorial: Eye study
This is a watercolor tutorial focused on painting a single eye step by step (as requested). I explained what exact materials and tools I used for this painting. If you have any questions, suggestions or this tutorial isn't comprehensive enough / missing anything important, comment here or note me - I will gladly answer and help you as much as I can to make this kind of technique comprehensive for aspiring watercolorists.

Please note that this might not be the most perfect or proper way of how to approach watercolor painting, it is merely an explanation how I worked.

Jane, Whoa, thanks so much your role in my DD.
I wish I could be successful at suggesting, although I've
only done it once, I probably shouldn't give up. I've had a
friend and supporter for my 4 years on DArt, Katie and
I suggested one of her expert quilts. Thought you might
be so kind as to have a look.
THANKS again...richardRainbow Star Explosion by kbhollo
