Tufted Titmouse Sale

TuftedTitmouse

The Tufted Titmouse (with the cutest name ever) is a small songbird from North America. We have these cute little guys visiting our bird feeder all year long. They like to take one sunflower seed at a time and then fly back into the oak trees with the prize.

Some believe that a Tufted Titmouse appearing to you in your dreams or waking life is a message that your life is about to change. The Tufted Titmouse is a reminder that blessings are forthcoming.

This is an original watercolor dry mounted on archival mat board, in this beautiful weathered turquoise frame. The holidays are fast approaching! An original work of art would be something unique to give to your special person.

It is currently ON SALE at Marnee’s Studio in Mobile, AL. Check it out at www.marneestudio.com

Thank you for your continued support friends!

Hi Friends!

This Fall & Winter, I will be teaching a 4 week session of Watercolor Techniques (beginning & intermediate) at Marnee’s Studio in Mobile, AL. Enjoy a morning of fun while learning the fundamentals of watercolor in a relaxing environment. We will cover the basic techniques including wet into wet, wet on dry, dry brush, masking, using mixed materials such as sea salt, paper towels and more. Consider taking if you are local and have ever considered experimenting with this medium. This class is also for those who have taken watercolor or would like to improve upon their skill level. We also have a drop in rate if you are interested in coming for 1 class.

The class will run on Wednesdays, October 17, 24, 31 & November 7.

Two Cardinals

I recently finished this very special custom work. Did you know that some people believe that a red cardinal is a representation of a loved one who has passed? When you see one it means that the loved one is visiting you and they usually show up when you most need them, to let you know that they will always be with you.

Sketching

Here is the full video of me playing around with my Sketch & Wash pencil, watercolor brush and waterproof ink pen. I’m working on some new characters and trying to figure out how I want to portray these pesky sea gulls.

A is for Alligator!

I’m going to an SCBWI conference in March and working on some new things to add to my portfolio. My goal is to eventually turn this into an alphabet book. Here is the first page! If you are interested in following my process, you can find more videos and in process photos on my Instagram (@lisajohnstonhancock) and Twitter (@LisaJHancockArt) accounts. Give me a follow and see what I’m up to! Thank you friends. 😉
