Clair de Lune


I made a logo for my brother’s violin ensemble in the school where he teaches – Clair de Lune. It’s his birthday today and this is his special request from me. I exceeded 10 more minutes just to make some extra touch-ups.  I love the moon so I truly enjoyed drawing this.

Happy birthday to my bro Edmond. 🙂


Mrs. Zapra Finished Version

So, here it is…the finished version of Mrs. Zapra’s portrait (see the unfinished version here). I had to rush it this morning because I need to give it in the afternoon. I must say this 30 minute art project really do helped me work faster. I usually finish a portrait in a week. This portrait, I finished for one evening and one morning.   Although on this one, I didn’t get to check the drawing much for errors and I didn’t get to darken and make the colors more vibrant. But I’ll see to it that I’ll make a better one next time! I used cotton balls and cotton buds in making the color appear softer just like the pastels. I prefer colored pencils more than the pastels because it makes my hand dirty :P. I make sure my hands are clean when doing an artwork so that there will be no unwanted color in the portrait when I touch it.

Oh, and those small pink dots on the background are the droplets from the fixative. I don’t know why, probably I sprayed too much. lol.

So, that’s that. I hope Mrs. Zapra will like it.  Have a great day! 😀

Mrs. Zapra

Today, I didn’t get to do a 30 minute art because I’m doing another art. LOL. I intend to give this as a gift tomorrow. I’ve been working on it the whole evening. Obviously it is not yet finished but hopefully I will get to finish this until tomorrow morning.

I’ll let you see it tomorrow when it is done. Have a great day! 🙂
