Practise gouache


I had a few sick-days last week so I went at gouache again, I really want to learn it, I really like the finish of it.

I went at it and uploaded a few drawings and paintings from this summer, I have had a period of not so much creative work.



Small break


Spring is just around the corner!

A few weeks ago I accidentelly hurt my leg while skiing soo this week is a sick leave week from work, dr orders.


My orders were to lay down with my leg high, sigh, so this week has been a long one. And while I am not really aloud to run around doing stuff at all, since I shouldn’t put pressure on my ankle, the sun has been out and about for like aaaaaaall days I have been on the couch!! MEH!!


Luckily I stocked up with coffee before this week, hehe

I’m pretty active on my instagram @imaginaryleia, more so now when I’m down! If you wanna get closer updates.

Have a nice week!



Practise my wacom skills

Blog, Creativity

I really like my painting sofware, I use the Clip Studio Paint ❤

I just hit it tonight and went ahead with no sketch and a green surface and pretended it was a painting, like I usually do when I paint with acrylics or oil paint 🙂 I think I like this way of working so I will probably try out this a few more times during my winter break that is coming up.


I realise when looking at it now that I probably could have worked a bit more with the contrasts 😛 I will have to go back checking it out tomorrow again and see what I think. I did this kind of fast, I think I used like just above an hour to do it, so time-wise I think it is going better and better 🙂


Have a nice weekend ❤



A gift


Yesterday when a friend came over she brought a gift for me ❤


I am in love ❤ Out of all brush pens I have tried so far this i the best one, AND I can refill it! It’s the Zig Kuretake Brush pen ❤

I had a drawing laying aorund so I tried it out and hten I washed some FW acrylic inks over since it was an underwater drawing 🙂


This was my first try with this brush pen sooo more to come later on, I did a few more small drawings later last night and those felt a bit more controlled with the lines and all ❤






I did it! I pushed throught he whole of inktober! ❤

I am already thinking of next year, I am going to make my own list or keep to a theme 🙂

I was brainstorming with a friend yesterday what could be the next thing..and I have been thinking about my problem with hands…. and she was like HANDSEMBER…

That could be a thing ❤





Last inktober


I think I’m close to when I gave up inktober last year.

This year I feel I will be able to do it! Though other things are on my mind this year. Last year it was to do or not to do and this year it is doing it or doing it A+.

This last week I had many things going on so I had to catch up a bit on inktober when the weekend came…so a bit rushed perhaps but I pulled through and I like my small drawings with ink, but then I start thinking about how they should be bigger and I should put more work to it. Well I guess there is always something, right?!

And if I put my all to inktober next year with my own grade of A+ on everything…I wonder what I will compare that to….yepp we’ll see!

Bottom line….you can ALWAYS do more, so be proud of what you actually do 🙂

Wow almost sounded like some kind of wisdom there, I’m turning 30 next year so I EXPECT the wisdom to just rain down 😉


Good night ❤
