Calendar girls

I'm having fun with putting my sketches together with my in-progress-paintings as background, and then searching for an appropriate text / poem / quote to go with it. Since I will use these to make a calendar that I want to sell, I need to make sure that there's no copyright infringement. So now I'm looking into quotes and poetry from authors that have died at least 70 years ago ... Takes a lot of work! How I wish I could write my own poetry ....

Anyway: here are some old sketches that I coloured in  and gave a background. Not sure yet whether I'll leave them like this for the calendar ...


Aren't those background colours yummy!? It's so nice that I can use pictures of the different stages of my paintings in other work. This is a very big advantage of working with many layers ☺ I have loads of them since I did Flora's class!


And here's another one-liner !


Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back on Wednesday with another inspiring artist! ♥

  8. Most excellent, Denthe! I want to encourage you to begin what I've started. I began a document on my computer titled "An'Angelia Quotes". I try to remember to leave it open on the computer, and on the rare occasion that I think something profound, I type it into the document. (I think I'm up to 4 quotes- LOL) You KNOW how many things we think about when we're painting! :o) Big hugs to you, and good luck with your calender sales!

  10. Beautiful drawings/paintings. That would be rather difficult to find quotes from someone who has died at least 70 years ago. Quite the task, but a lovely one!
