London life ... we're all mad here ... only levels may differ.

A couple of animal paintings I did the last couple of days, this time using oil pastels and I found I really love this medium and how it turns out. Still in the beginning of practice with them though, so hopefully I'll learn some tricks and tips soon.

It's been a few weeks again but this time it's because: I was working on my first *official* commission! Which included 10 watercolours for a wedding, so yes, it's been a bit busy 🙈 (When I find the pics of the watercolours I'll post a couple of them later.) But now that I'm finally done, I will post my little drawings and paintings again.  Especially since I got some nrw supplies because my birthday was a couple of weeks a go as well. (As I said: it's been busy 😅) This lovely Beetle is done with my old watercolour pencils in my new tiny (A6) sketchbook and I'm looking forward to filling it. I generally draw on any paper, so making nice things within ONE sketchbook is actually something new for me 😂

That's it for an update, I'll be back with another painting. Very soon, I promise 🙈

Just experimenting with other styles... #doodle #sketch #drawing #watercolour #egghead #style #art #experimenting
Last update for now. I am still trying to find my style (or any style really 😅), so I am experimenting with lots of different things. This one was one of my first human beings I creates out of my oqn head and painted with watercolour and I'm really happy with how it turned out (despite the flat-looking snake 🙈). Peope drawing has never been my strong suit and I prefer to leave them hand-less most of the time. But I am finally practising to learn drawing properly with references and certain basics and find out what works for and helps me with achieving a picture I had in my mind.

So yeah, that's it for now. I will post more work from now on and try to stick to it 🙏

Another thing I found our last autumn was that I seem to be not so bad at drawing dreamcatchers. I can't actually remember ever having had one myself and it was only due to a tutorial on how to draw a feather that I started drawing a dreamcatcher but somehow I really like how they turn out on my paper.

It's been along time since I posted anything and a LOT has been going on and changed or me since last year. The main factor is that I have much more time for drawing and painting and *practising* above all. It's obviously still a process I'm on the middle of but at least I start being proud of some of my creations, despite them being far from anywhere near perfect.

It's been a while. Again. But life was keeping me busy and away from posting as I had to deal with things that weren't the ones you want to share right in the middle while you're feeling the worst.

So for now, have a little update of another elephant I painted for a friend who left work and moved back home.

Last Sunday I moved in with my boyfriend - an experience I actually gave up on ever having. But here we are, and it was also the first time since that I had to do it without my furbaby. It still feels strange and empty at times. 
However, even though my last weeks have been busy with moving sorting and other issues, I finally took the time (and courage!) to watercolour my drawing of her. Space for improvement, obviously, but thankfully didn't mess it up!

Channeling my inner Katniss Everdeen... So the weekend before last I went with a few friends to an introductory morning of archery in East Dagenham.

Not too bad for a first proper trial with bow and arrow 😁

Since I find a little time right now, here the elephants for my friend at work, for her empty bedroom wall.

Elphaba creating the Emerald City, sacrificing her skin, herself? Not canon, I know, but this image somehow came to mind when I started sketching her at first. And I somehow like it very much. What can I say? I'm a sucker for bittersweet stories.... #wicked #elphaba #oz #emeraldcity #yellowbrickroad #wickedwitchofthewest #musical #lfrandbaum #fandom #villain #green #witch #drawing #fanart #watercolour #ink #drawingpens #london #londonlife
Finally finished my elephants! 😁
