Sunday Sketches - line art and some feelings involved

Hi and thanks for coming to see my Sunday sketches :) I really enjoy doing this and hope that you will enjoy what you can see in my blog and in this post.
These came around actually very randomly. I am in nature a line lover and since I haven't done anything like this (and left it black and white) for quite a while, I decided to just go for it and enjoy the lines again. And I did. I loved drawing these!
They are just some young ladies, one is a fairy, another is an angel, the third one a teenager, and the last one a lover. They are titled with the first thing that came to my mind and I think it fits well enough :)

When you look at them, you may notice that I enjoy drawing figures in different postures, the faces, and hair... yes, i love to draw these :)

I am still unsure if and where I am going to post these for sale. They are cards 5x7 and they will be available only as originals. If you'd be interested, just come back here in a couple of days and the answer (and the link) should be up.

Here they are.

The teen moments
Had to say goodbye...

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!


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 ;)

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…
