- Hi, My name is Irene Owens. My greatest passion in life is Art. I love drawing portraits, painting whimsical pictures and illustrating for children. I also collect children's books and hope to one day get one of my own picture books published. I have a shop on Etsy where I sell my prints, hand painted pendants and mirrors. In this blog you will find artists that inspire me, brilliant handmade creations and my own art. I hope you enjoy my posts.

Out and About
This illustration is done with acrylics and is meant to look as if it's painted with watercolor. I've no idea why I'm trying to make acrylics look like watercolor when I have a perfectly nice watercolor set. I guess I haven't overcome my fear of watercolor yet. It's just so... wishy washy. Well, at least in my hands. Whenever I see a really great watercolor painting I simply itch to do one of my own but so far I've only managed to mix watercolor with acrylics, never used watercolor alone in the whole painting. Scaredy cat. I mean, what's the worst that can happen?
Is there a medium that you long to master but haven't got courage to?
