I'm On a Jewelry Kick!

I've been busy lately working on painted jewelry!! For two reasons...this fall I will be traveling to Belgium to teach at the JAMvention again, and will be teaching jewelry! I am SO excited and SO honored to be invited to teach again, and for their big 10th anniversary!! And the second reason, I'm working on a new book about jewelry painting...so excited! My "Realism for Face & Body Artists" book does touch on jewelry a little bit, but there is SO much more to cover, it definitely warrants it's own book. So, stay tuned this year for a new ultimate reference for painting jewelry! I'll be covering gems as well as many other types of stones, different kinds of chains, different types of gem cuts, and a bunch of great tips and tricks for speeding up the little details!

Here are a few paintings I've done in the past week...







Aaah...SO much fun!! I have a few others I did today that I'll share later, so stay tuned to the blog, Facebook, Instagram & twitter for more! Thanks for stopping by, and happy painting!!
