I just wanted to show you the linework for my latest painting and announce the winner of my naming contest! This is my next piece that I will be painting and she is going to be called Portrait of a Witch #1 - Willow. Congratulations to Annie Hagopian for suggesting the name Willow for this piece! I ended up choosing the name Willow, first off because I love the name. I love it so much that it is actually the name of one of my kitties. =) I also think the name fits this piece perfectly with the vines and branches in her hair. So thank you so much for the name Annie! You will receive a 5x7" print of the finished piece. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize! =)

Well, I hope you all like the linework. This was done with the pen tool in Photoshop. I create these lines for my rubber stamps that are licensed through Sweet Pea Stamps and also for my coloring pages. I use them for my final painting as well by printing them very lightly on the final watercolor paper. It's a quick and easy way to transfer my linework to my final paper.
I will hopefully start painting Willow very soon. I can't wait to get started!
