This is my first attempt at using India Ink. Couldn’t help but get painterly with it. Looking for to more practice!
Painting mini things while waiting for other things to dry.
Seems easy enough, yeah?
Good things on the horizon.
From my watercolor sketchbook. Can’t seem to get away from this floral motif these days!
Because painting for no reason feels really good right now.
Sunday morning sketches.
I heard that Hannah Gadsby’s latest Netflix special was something to watch. And it was, even during the most difficult and revealing moments. I think it would be downright disrespectful for me to say that I can relate to this woman’s experience simply because I am a woman because in reality, I can’t. My life looks very little like hers. However, I do understand resilience and what rebuilding yourself looks like (at least on some level) and that is what resonated with me. I can also say that I gained a better perspective on how being honest can be really REALLY uncomfortable for people on the receiving end, yet is totally necessary if it means someone gets to live authentically.✌
Made in Procreate using their new symmetry tool with an overlay of a watercolor wash I had handy.
I've been pushing myself to practice more. Lettering has always been very intimidating for me but I am finding that I am starting to gravitate towards a style that feels more natural.
Kicking off a long weekend with some time in my sketchbook.
Cactus inspired watercolor washes in my sketchbook. Kept this one very lose to see what happens. Watercolor is always full of surprises.
Trying to get back in the drawing groove (after a bit of funk) starting with Pumpkin the Raccoon. I’m considering doing a pet portrait series to feel inspired agian. I’ve found in the past that if you draw your friend’s animals they are are overjoyed and sharing that feeling has always motivated me to make more.
I've been participating in #The100DayProject on Instagram and included some doodles as part of my Creative Curiosity theme.
From my watercolor sketchbook.
I have been really enjoying this motif lately of mixing geometric shapes and linework with the fluidity of watercolor.
I have been participating in Lauren Hom’s #HOMwork challenges via Instagram. This weeks challenge was to draw the same letter 16 ways. I drew cats instead. I may come back to the whole lettering thing at some point!
Mashup of geometric patterns and some organic shapes.
