I came 3rd place!

I got 3rd Prize in Acrylics for my Queen of Hearts painting last week! Very exciting as I never win anything! (some people find my art a little weird!)

Sherwood Art Week this weekend and next week! My art is in the windows of the Robin Hood Pub until 28th June
Also I have more artwork at the Sherwood Methodist Church 26th – 28th June.
(Friday 26th June 10am – 5pm, Saturday 27th June – 10am – 5pm and Sunday 28th June 1pm – 5pm)

How I created my Queen of Hearts Painting

I am going to show you my process of creating artwork and then creating them into products to sell online. Hopefully you guys can refer back to this to give you some help with your artwork!

Here is where I sell my artwork online: Redbubble.com/people/VictoriaThorpe

The Brief

Create a Queen of Hearts Painting for the Queen of Hearts Collaboration Project on facebook (Created by the awesome Lauren C. Waterworth!)

The idea is for two artists to collaborate on an idea and then help each other to promote their work via social media and selling prints of the finished collaborative piece. This is open for all artists! Please click here to contact Lauren to take part!

Research

I like to use pinterest to research.

Sketching

Here is a super rough idea I sketched.

I didn’t like it so much so I started again and ended up creating a much better character.

**My inspirations: The Queen of Hearts herself! Harley Quinn, Emilie Autumn and Maria Brink**

Painting

now it’s time to transfer her onto canvas paper and get ready to paint her!
