Some new Lil Dumplins

These are little 5 x 7 acrylic paintings on watercolor paper. I didn't paint much over the weekend but I did play around with sketching some new little ones. Last night I tried to recreate them on watercolor paper and paint them up. There was something so peaceful and calming about painting these little cuties. Maybe the stress of Christmas being gone is what helped too, I don't know.

I hope to make greeting cards from them :)

Have a great Tuesday!
