One of my goals for 2016 is to work in series.  Not only is it more efficient, but it is also fun to have collections of like themed pieces.  This series of four canvases I affectionately refer to as “The Little Ladies”.  They are each a diminutive 4 x 12 inch canvas.  Here are shots of them from the beginning.

the sketch was done right on the canvas…..


Then I shaded in the faces, I guess so we could get started making friends…


From there it was a process of adding paint, then adding paper, then adding more paint… and then all over again!



So, now let me introduce… the Fishmonger’s Wife,

  2. I cannot pick a favourite. I like them all too much. I find it really beneficial to work in a series. It helps me focus my creativity and track my progress.

  3. I love all of them!! Beautiful job!! Are they going to be available for sale?

    • Thank you, and Yes! I haven’t decided yet whether they should head to the local gallery, or my etsy shop, but in the meantime, they can be purchased directly from me. $45 each, payable by PayPal or credit card. Email if you want more information!

  4. These are all gorgeous Kayann! Thanks for showing your process 🙂
