Let's Get Your Creative Juices Flowing!!!
My latest art book, Magical Mythical Creatures, is finally available, and I couldn't be more thrilled! This is book number 35 for me, and is the first book I've CO-AUTHORED with a friend - my Scottish bestie, who is an absolutely gorgeous watercolor and gouache artist, Lucy Brydon.
Lucy and I met online in 2015 and our friendship just exploded over the next few years. We've art-ed together as students and teachers, co-hosted art retreats, started a podcast, and created a fantasy art club with online art lessons together called The Celtic Collective.
This year we had a blast trying something new and co-authoring a fantasy art book together!

Each project in the book provides a simple art supply list, followed by easy-to-follow art instruction to help you have FUN and create something you can be proud of.
If you've been following me for a while or have purchased one of my art books in the past, you know I'm a stickler for taking my time to explain each step.
As an art book hoarder myself, I feel like there's nothing worse than grabbing an art book by an author who skips multiple steps and just expects you to fill in the blanks on your own!
InHow to Draw & Paint Magical Mythical Creatures, you'll find a wide variety of fantasy art projects from fairies and dragons, to kelpies, unicorns, and selkies. Each project gives you the opportunity to try playing with a number of different mediums from toned paper to watercolor, acrylics, gouache and more.
Even if one or some of the art supplies used in this book are new to you as an artist, or if you've never tried mixed media art before (GASP!) - we hope you'll give it a try because it's SO MUCH FUN once someone shows you how to do it!!
Many of the projects in this book also feature faces, so you'll find the appropriate face drawing guidelines within those lessons to help you make the facial features in your own drawings more proportional.
Thanks SO much for hanging out with me today!
Make sure you watch today's video so you can see each and every page of Magical Mythical Creatures!

What Fans Are Saying
Karen, you are absolutely fabulous! You make me feel like I can draw anything. I have recently retired and finally have the time to do some of the art that I have loved since I was in school. I am really at the beginning of my art journey and I hope to learn as much as I can. Thank you for all you do.
