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!
sometimes i get tired of my sketchbook so i go over it in watercolours! they’re not a medium i’m excellent at, but it’s a fun way to refresh my brain and sketchbook at the same time! plus, getting to play around with watercolours is quite relaxing, so i think i’m going to do it more often.
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.
recent sketchbook entry done originally in blue ink and then layered with blue, yellow, and pink watercolours. the original sketches were done quite quickly so i enjoyed spending extra time with watercolours to blend and add to the original drawings! i’ve been adding more colours to my sketchbook recently and it’s been wonderful so far.
