I drew this pretty pregnant woman when I was about 13 weeks pregnant and struggling to get over first trimester morning sickness, dizziness and low blood pressure and later coloured her by hand around 18 weeks pregnant when I was feeling much better.
The size of this print is 8.5 by 11 inches / 20,5cm by 28cm. With Child is a limited edition of 250 only and i chose to print her on a natural coloured acid and lignon free paper.
I don’t think you really know how bad you were feeling until you actually begin to feel better. I am 20 weeks pregnant today and my belly is growing and growing. I’m feeling pretty good though.
Chris and I decided to not find out the gender of the baby so it’ll be a surprise when he or she arrives in early September.
This is the original ink drawing before I began adding in the coloured pencil.
With Child will make a beautiful baby shower shower gift or gift to a newly pregnant woman. You can get one in my Etsy Shop.
Isn’t she the most insane floating snail you’ve ever seen only in your dreams! I thoroughly enjoyed creating this piece. She measures 10 by 10 inches (30,5cm by 30,5cm).
The Messenger of Whimsy was created with Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens, Micron Pens, Prismacolor coloured Pencils and Winsor and Newton watercolour on Arches cold press rough watercolour paper. Continue reading
While Winter is dragging on in all it’s glistening white glory I’d thought I’d share a selection of previously published drawings with you that celebrate Spring to keep you warm and waiting for March 21st. All the original drawings have sold but I have listed and created fine art prints of each drawing.
Above are Spring Magnolia’s available in both open edition 5×5 inch and 8×8 inch sizes.
The Spring Pussy Willows are listed as a limited edition print in 8.5 x 11 inch size.
These soft pastel hued mushrooms are listed in two different set sizes; ACEO size and 5×7 inch size.
And lastly, the blossoming apple Spring Tree is available in 8×8 inch size, 5×5 inch size and as part of a set of Four Seasons fine art prints.
Spring tree is also featured on a wonderful Four Seasons of Trees Polarity Locket Set.
Anyhow, I hope these drawings brighten your day as it’s freezing cold outside right now where I live! 😉
