Fairy Queen Sketch

Fairy Queen pencil sketch by Veronica Kosowski

I only have a few pages left in my old sketchbook so as a fun pre-New Year challenge I've decided to fill it up by January 1st.  Here's a Fairy Queen concept sketch from one of the pages.

Merry Christmas!

Forest Christmas painting by Veronica Kosowski

Merry Christmas!

Here's a little holiday something from me to you.  I'm so grateful for all you lovely interweb folks who take the time to follow my art and chime in with encouraging comments.  You inspire me so much, thank you!  

Hope you're having a great holiday with too many sweets and lots of boisterous family around (said whilst chomping on yet another slice of a chocolate orange, yum).

The Ice Maiden WIP

Ice Maiden painting by Veronica Kosowski

Started an acrylic painting today based on Hans Christian Andersen's story "The Ice Maiden".  Less people know this story than the ever-popular "Snow Queen", but it's been one of my favorites for years!

Digital Watercolor Forest

Digital Watercolor Forest by Veronica Kosowski

Painting forests with my digital watercolors!

I really just want to Blue Skidoo into this painting.  Anyone else watch Blue's Clues back in the day and wish "skidooing" was real?

For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, the main characters Blue and Steve had the ability to transport themselves into paintings by saying the magic rhyme: "Blue skidoo, we can too!" How awesome is that?  I can think of so many paintings I'd like to visit, I'd have to move to a museum!

Forest creatures watercolor painting by Veronica Kosowski

Forest creatures watercolor painting by Veronica Kosowski

Can't believe it's already December 1st, this year is flying by!

I finished two new foresty ACEO paintings yesterday.  The first one features a forest spirit and the second the same sad forest creatures from one of my Inktober sketches a while back.  I think these guys might become regulars in my character lineup, they're so fun to draw!

You can find both of these paintings in my Etsy shop or by clicking the Etsy banner in the sidebar.
