I forgot to post my Christmas In July picture here. Oops… my bad. I put it up on my FaceBook site and on Instagram and forgot my main site here. Bad Peta. With Instagram it’s just too easy to take a photograph and submit it within seconds while sitting at my art table. It is the best place to find my latest finished works although I almost always will post them eventually here. Peta Hewitt’s Instagram page.
You’ll see I’m a little further on with my colouring and my monstergirl challenge. 🙂 You will also sometimes see candid photos of the things I love and everyday life.
But back to the sparkly picture above. I wanted to do a Christmas themed picture for July and what better excuse to break in Lizzie Mary Cullen’s ‘The Magical Christmas’. I wanted a shiny, sparkly, golden feel to the picture so I started off with colouring the tree gold to set the tone. The Penguin had to be an emperor penguin in my mind. I particularly enjoyed colouring the girl and I love how the pink and gold really pop in this picture. The rest of the picture just evolved naturally for me. If you would like to see the video of me colouring this picture you can find it here on YouTube. Coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils with a white Signo Uniball gel pen for sparkles.
