Felt Wall Hanging Art

These wall hanging art pieces are a way for me to combine my love for sewing and my style of illustration and make artwork for your walls or anywhere else you would like to hang the pieces. They are made from felt and some are stuffed as well. They have a little ribbon sewn onto the back for hanging. Here is a few and I would like to make more soon. They are also available in this section of my Etsy shop: Felt Wall Art. I would like to evidently make some larger wall pieces out of felt.

The Performer: Process

I decided to document a few steps of my painting "The Performer". This painting goes along with a few other paintings of mine: The Writer and the The Musician and the Traveler.

This first step is after the drawing has been transfered onto canvas. The undercoat is thinly painted on and lines are painted in.

This second step is where the color is blocked in and I am starting to layer the paint from dark to light. The spotlights have not been painted in yet.
On the finished piece the layers are completed. The translucent spotlights have been painted in. The lines have been repainted as well.
