Two new Ellifolks critters are now in my Etsy shop along with two new art prints.
Johnson, a mohair artist bear is hand dyed and hand shaded to give a rich, vintage coloring. I used a sparse mohair for Johnson to add to the vintage look and feel. He has one glass eye with a wool felt edging and one vintage shoe button eye ringed with a red embroidered circle. His circle nose is embroidered with pearl cotton thread. He is stuffed with excelsior and cotton batting.
Harriet Rabbit and Sam are a hand dyed and hand shaded pale pink rabbit and a hand dyed and hand shaded pale green chick both made of sparse German mohairs.
Harriet Rabbit is approximately 8" tall including ears and is cotter-pin jointed for a vintage feel. She is wearing a needle-felted purple polka dot hat with cotton lace trim. She has German glass eyes and a pearl cotton embroidered nose and mouth. She is stuffed with excelsior and cotton batting. She has steel shot in her tummy to give her a nice weight.
Sam Chick is approximately 4 1/4" tall including his purple glass bead legs and feet. He has a needle-felted comb and beak and German glass eyes. He is stuffed with excelsior.
"Boy With Dog" is a fine art giclée print of one of my original color pencil and digital paintings. I did a drawing with color pencils and then scanned it into my computer. I colored it in Procreate using many layers and types of digital brushes.
"Girl With Poodle and Flowers" is a fine art giclée print of one of my original mixed media/acrylic paintings. This was painted on a cradled wood panel. I started with a very textured layer of gesso and incorporated the texture into the painting. I also used pencil and color pencils in the painting.
"Sail" is a digital painting I made in Illustrator. I like the combination of the clean, flat shapes with gradient color.
