both on 18×24″ paper, done in watercolours, march 2017
abstract and watercolours are both a bit of a struggle for me, but practice makes perfect and i’ve already noticed improvement in my work! this watercolour is done on a piece of large sketchbook paper, and i took my time with this one which is extra rewarding!
since moving my art space to the living room where i have more area and better lighting i’m getting back into acrylic painting! here are some warm-up paintings i’ve done recently while playing with colours.
i’ve been going over my photos from 2016 and there were a lot i liked that had never been edited and posted. all three of these were taken in the netherlands in april/may 2016. i’ve been thinking a lot about travelling more and taking more photos. who knows what the new year will bring! let me know if you’d like me to post more pictures like these!
now that i’m almost finished with finals and much less stressed, i’m using my acrylics again! this painting was mostly just for fun, a warmup to get used to mixing colours, blending, and using brushes again. it was a really satisfying experience, stay tuned for more paintings coming soon!
