Nymph - Mixed media Portrait

What can I tell you, beside the immense pleasure that I felt, creating this painting. It was created during the night when the house was quiet and I was able to listen and to feel more. It´s a Nymph!
I hope you like it as much as I do :)


It can be yours here.

Thanks for stopping by.


How to draw an Angel


Today I am sharing with you how can you draw a sweet Angel, use the sheet below to guide you. Wishing you a happy drawing!


Print this sheet - right click, save image as..., then go to your images and print on a A4 size 

Some ideas:

- draw your angel and paint it with markers on your journal ( give yourself quality creative time)
- draw your angel on a canvas and paint it with acrylic paints ( it can even make a beautiful gift)
- make sweet gift tags or postcards for your Christmas gifts

Enjoy and have fun creating with Angels 
( you can even call your guiding Angels to create with you)
Just saying ;)
