Trying to learn how to do underpaint  (is that a word?), this is about 2 different layers each sealed with a matte medium. The base layer is the ink shading, and the second is the watercolour tint. I’m still sorting how I feel about this technique, I need to try it more I think.

I’ve got a new member to my family of bones. This is… actually I don’t have a name for him yet but for some reason I feel like he might be a Luis. It’s a resin skull shaped planter, right now I’ve got my fake peonies (the ones I use for hair flowers) sticking into his head, but I might switch things up depending on the season and my mood.

If you have a suggestion for what I should name him, let me know in the comments below.

Also I bought him off Amazon.

Pineapples and Palm Leaves

Recently finished my old sketchbook, so I had to start a new one. As much as I enjoy the fact that this cover is much easier to draw all over compared to my last one, I must say that I absolutely hate this sketchbook. The paper is not to my liking plus the binding of the book started coming apart after the first few uses. Now to be fair maybe I’m too aggressive with my sketchbooks but I think it’s because there was no ribbon or any extra support for the binding with this. Maybe I’ll add some to prevent it from falling apart but not a good move Picadilly.

Aside from hating the sketchbook, the pretty palm leaves and pineapples were both done in some metallic markers. I like the markers.
