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!
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!
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!
i haven’t posted in a little while due to some personal struggles but now i’m back! i’ve been focusing on mainly watercolours and poetry but i have hopes to work my way back into acrylics. in the meantime here is a watercolour in a new type of style that i was experimenting with. it was fun to do!
i have started my 2017 with both watercolour paintings and some poetry, so i decided to use an old book and combine them with something i haven’t tried in a long time- blackout poetry! this was my first attempt and i will have to better document the words and practice more, but it’s fun so far.
a work-in-progress picture of my most recent watercolour! i love the final result as well, but wanted to share this version as well.
