I choose a paper with a bit more structured surface and it turned out to realy be the best option when I started painting with the water colours ❤

I have also bought new coffee cups so right now I am only drinking coffee out of this lovely cup ❤

I went into town with a friend right before closing today, I needed a new backpack, and I have had my eyes on a special backpack for a while ❤

All of my drawings and paintings are for sale as well, I might be kind of bad when it comes to advertising this but there it is. If you’re interested in works in my portfolio or why not a drawing/painitng through my blog, just let me know.

New materials

Blog, Creativity

So the other day I went to fetch a package that came for me…new materials Hello!

Well I do have materials offcourse since before, but I am very curious of to see what different kind of brush markers that’s out thre, specifically the black ink. I really enjoy inking with the brush markers…so far.

I saw this video of you know the guy Jake Parker that invented the inktober-thing, where he had got a small package of materials that he was going to use to make a drawing, just to try the materials. First of I really liked the water colour pencils ha had got so I found the same and they are really good with their pigment!!! Secondly I really liked the idea of picking out a few materails and create something… so I actually found that that is probably the best way go at it when I got my materials!

The quality is a bit off, but that is because this picture really is kind of small, like done on a A5-sized paper…

Practising gouache skills

Blog, Creativity

I have actually been in my art studio all day long…so far… practising my gouache skills!

I made three squares earlier today which I just drew something into, and then I added things as I went on painting.

I was a bit sceptical to the pink-purple in the grass but…it kind of worked out well. The flowers was supereasy to scan and get a good digital copy of:

flower gouache

No tonal corrections at all… but the cup was a bit harder, even though I treied correcting it to the original painting the red just pops out a bit to much, so have that in mind 😛

mug greenery

I figured a few things out while working, I think what I really want to get a hang of is the habit of how to mix the colours depending on if you need a light dried colour or a dark colour…since the colurs change from wet to dry ….

At it later again perhaps… but I know I have a very nice package to get from the post office ❤ soooo perhaps other things will pop up later 😉

Again

Blog, Creativity

Yepp!!

I’m trying out gouache again. Gouache is still a bit tricky…but…I really like the way the paint dries and the results you can get ❤ 


I probably made my drawing a bit conplicated, I could have made an easier one, but it was fun ❤ 

A friend of mine also tried it out, we agree with eachother….this will take a while to get the hang of 🙂 

Tomorrow I’ll continue working with it, I will have maaaaany bad paintings coming up 😉

Exploring

Blog, Creativity

I have been exploring a bit with materials and combos of them recently….I really want to find a way with ink that works with how I want the end result to be… so I will just have to continue I guess 🙂
