DOG breed series on ACEOs

Hi :)
I finally got to what I wanted to do for a long time! Dog breeds! I had been sketching and doodling but never took it farther. Why? I didn't know which way to go! What format, what texhnique... hand drawn or digital?
But as I discovered ACEOs and became more fond of watercolors, I started realizing - that this is it! :)

And so here they come! I have only a few, but I think it's good for the start! What do you think?? I will work probably alphabetically, but if anyone wants me to jump to some breed faster, I can do it;)

They are all gonna be available (and THESE ALREADY ARE) on etsy - http://katehollart.etsy.com



Please, leave some comments.

What is your most favorite breed?
Is three of each good number for the start?

  3. These are adorable! Watercolor seems like the perfect medium for them. I especially love the first one in the second row. Cocker Spaniel? My favorite breeds are Boston Terriers and Boxers and I do love any kind of Bulldog.

Art, Language and Teaching Opportunities

Watercolors, Illustrations, ACEOs, lots of Czech and English language, lots of energy at home and major lack of sleep. How can all of that exist together! This has been one serious week!

ART:

I continued The Girl and her Cat series and got as far as 5 illustrations. (showing the 5th one here. For the other ones, check out this post) After that, I needed a little break, but I will get back to it and create more pieces.



I took one morning to get back to one of my favorite styles, which is pure line art, and drew a Spring-inspired portrait! And I really do love this! 




(I love this style so much that I actually created a whole coloring book last year and if you like coloring and you are a mother or have a mother or a mother friend, this book is for you! It also has a section of encouraging Bible verses. It's called Treasure of the Heart and you should check it out!) ;)




Then yesterday I thought, wow, I haven't painted any ACEOs in a really long time! And unlike the usual theme which wou…

How to be a Good Artist when you're completely Eclectic

I am an artist. I love art. I love all the different styles, techniques, mediums. They inspire me, they challenge me, they grow me. But many times I was told that I can't do all of it if I want to be a good artist. 
That really confused me. I wanted to be a good artist, but I didn't want to give up everything that I love to do, and only pick one niche. Like, which one is it going to be? Am I going to focus only on portraits? Or only on cartoons? Or fashion designs? I love painting with watercolors too! Oh and don't get me started on realistic line art! Oh, and did you know there was this cool technique called Zentangle? I have to try that out too! Oh, guess what - I really love doing that too! Oh gosh... I am completely all over the place. This can't be good for my portfolio! How will I attract viewers? And more importantly, how will I keep them coming back, if the next time they come, they will see something completely different than what they "signed up" for…

FUN LITTLE ART - the New Art Channel with Drawing videos for Kids!

Hi everyone!

The summer passed and fall is here. And I have an announcement! I just recently released my new art channel called "Fun Little Art" that is dedicated to drawing videos for children. If you have kids around you who love to draw, share these with them! I'm sure they will enjoy them and maybe even learn ;)




HOW IT CAME ABOUT
I have had my main "Kate Holloman" channel for years. Even though my channel is primarily about art, it became popular because of a video of my husband and then 8mo son (it's pretty cute), but it seems like all the people that watch that video and subscribe to my channel don't really have any expectation to see art videos so those aren't watched as much. What a bummer! So I decided that it might be worth a try to have a channel that is clearly only about one thing and people won't be confused. And since I am a mom of two kids, drawing for them is something I do a lot anyway. Then I saw some other channels that were doi…
