Started a new sketchbook (back in July) and finally figured out what I wanted to do on the cover. The trees and sky came out beautifully, but you can see where I gave up, on the road. But that’s okay, because this is just a sketchbook and this was just for fun. Gouache Paint
Another! And I’m sure you can tell by how poorly done the door is, I wasn’t into it. I really only wanted to paint the leaves and flowers. Gouache
Small painting in one of my sketchbooks, I had an overwhelming urge to work with paint, so I broke out a set of gouache. I did do a few test drawings of other things to get a feel for gouache before I did this, but I really like this one, probably because of all the […]
Day 20: Seasons, I was going to paint some cool sunflowers for Summer/Fall, but when that didn’t pan out I switched over to the season most people get excited for. The snowy trees were the most difficult to do, but they turned out well, I also really like the cabin. Ink, White Ink, Water.
Didn’t feel like doing an Inktober today, wanted to draw something colourful and bright. Eehh, that background is not the greatest, but after messing with it for a while, I’m willing to accept it won’t turn out quite how I want is as it was unplanned. Markers, Ink, White Gel Pen.
Chose to draw a harvest moon for today’s prompt. Also I feel like I need to be reminded either by my phone or something that I need to tape down my paper before working with liquids, it buckled so badly. India Inks, Copics, Water.
Last one! The intended targets loved it. My first attempt at a shaker card, I think it turned out well, considering I couldn’t find any 3d foam tape. And the “Noel” is a touch off centre, but it still turned out lovely. Cardstock, Glitter, Watercolours, Ribbon
My apologies for the blurry photo, and for forgetting to post this here. This one was for C, who’s an amazing person, and always gets the most difficult card to make. I struggled with so many different ways to make the “Season’s greetings” writing, only to settle on 3D glue with black holo glitter dusted […]
Happy Inktober! Here is where my brain goes when I think of tranquil, the sounds of a light breeze through the leaves, next to still, calm waters. I missed day 1, because I chose to colour a piece that did not need colour. Brush Pen, Copic Markers, White Gel Pen
Attempted one of those adventure things, it was supposed to be darker and spookier, but my love of bright, vibrant colours betrayed me. Kuretake Brush Pens, Pentel Sign Pen, 0.3 mm Pigment Liner
