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!

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.

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!

this piece is titled “still growing” done in october 2016. i don’t work with watercolours as much as i would like, even though i enjoy the results i find them one of the most difficult mediums! however, i have more watercolour ideas that i hope to start working with soon.
