i’ve been practicing drawing more natural elements, such as animals, and so far owls have been one of my favourites! here’s a brightly coloured barn owl that i’ve been working on. it’s taking more time then normal, but i’m enjoying her so far! what’s your favourite animal to paint? let me know!

finished!

this is a 24×36″ acrylic on canvas with a gel matte finish! The finish is new, and makes it feel so fancy (to me, anyways). i have plans to properly photograph this with my dslr, so here’s an iphone pic to enjoy in the meantime!

spring thoughts

i’m thinking about spring colours today, the daffodils in my neighbour’s yard and the yellow roses outside my work building, and the pink cherry blossoms by the water! i’m feeling inspired and positively motivated. after work, i plan to pick up another 24×36″ canvas to play with on my days off.

acrylic fun!

spring is coming! the combo of new spring colours along with the bright blues of the pacific ocean near my house are very inspiring. i’m enjoying painting with my windows open for a spring breeze and the sound of birdsongs – here are some colour studies to enjoy.

giant canvases are the best.

honestly, i’m over the moon with this 4×6 foot painting. i did it in an all-nighter with a palate knife and some great music. the colours and the movement are wonderful to me, and while i know there is most definitely room for improvement, i would love to keep workin on a large scale such as this one. more big canvases for me please!

do you prefer to work on a large or small scale? let me know!

“don’t waste your talent” 2016, acrylic on canvas.

i used a reference for the original drawing and had a lot of fun working with these colours!

some colourful ladies

i’ve been on a bit of an art slump ever since i returned from my vacation to the netherlands, so i’ve been looking through my old artworks and inspiration boards to gibe me some more ideas. these are all from 2015 and are acrylics, and are all gals that i’m secretly in love with!! not all of these are the finished works.
