Don’t remember the last time when I spent so many hours on one piece… and still can’t finish it. >.<
Feeling quite productive these days. <3
Though still have this feeling I need more Africa… I can has?
Another WIP! Description below. The paper is still wet and wavy but I just can’t afford to wait until it dries and straightens. I use a cutting mat, it’s great for traveling.
1. A set of artists’ watercolors.
2. A color chart because the colors are never as they seem in the pans.
3. A few tubes of tube paints.
4. Just a semi precious stone, angelite, a stone that has made its way in my pocket yesterday. I like to play with it, great stress reliever.
5. A masking tape. Cannot live without one.
6. A morning cup of (rather cold) coffee.
7. Large round squirrel brush size 12, very handy.
8. Sable brushes size 2 and 5.
9. A ceramic pan used for the tube watercolors.
10. Pigment liners, size 0.1 and 0.05.
Current work in progress. :) The paper still looks a bit wavy on the photo but it straightens again when dried. I used blue and gold yellow for the underpainting here as it is a rainy/sunny scene. I tried to use my special limited palette which consists of squeezed out tube watercolors. Using a limited palette gives your painting a unified look.
A little WIP. I like to work on my own stuff. :)
A little something for my hunny Puma. For a Valentine’s day.
Happy Valentine’s day everyone!
Got myself a sketchbook while ago but started using it quite recently. The reason is I almost always give my personal sketches away, now I can keep them, all in one place. Something I can get back to. :] The two weird heads are for Ted, Azshara and the donkey is for my friend Vlk00. The hooves are just awful and I know that. :c
Some mess on my table. A painting in progress, Khajiit sitting on a guar’s back. Can’t manage to finish him. :c And also some recently made ACEO cards to be traded with a few friends.
Just a little bit of national pride.
Just a short update, artwork created in August. All are painted with watercolors, the bottom two are only A5 size, inked.
By the way, check out Jane Blundell’s watercolor triads, here: http://www.janeblundellart.com/watercolour-triads.html
Painting with only a few selected colors results in significant mood change in the picture. Try it, it’s fun!
