Continuing my flower series ahead.. this time with CHAMOMILE. Thanks to my friend Jacylnn @dustyjadestudio for hosting this wonderful floral lettering challenge. 🤗 (swipe⏪ to know more about it..)
I totally enjoyed this loose style of painting chamomile flowers. Thats the reason iv been painting flowers these days.. watching tutorials and learning how to use minimum color with wet on wet effect.. watercolor techniques jus amaze me..😍 for the 1st time (i wud like to confess💬) iv painted these chamomile flowers without using any white! Yeah.. 🥳💪 how do u like it?? 😁
Photo reference from by @mindz.eye bc I wanted to try out more cityscape brushes from @devinellekurtz! Phew buildings are tiring to do haha 😖 enjoyed adding the light in though! What do you think?
I haven’t been posting much— in fact I’ve hardly had any time to draw between work and making decisions about Expensive Events lol. I always thought I was rather decisive, but…turns out, I’m really not 😂😂😂 any tips on making decisions quickly?
Title: Old gecko in his garden Artist: Melissa Le Gall Backstory: This was my third entry for the April animal challenge. I wanted to picture something similar to the lofi imagery : relaxing, relating to quiet and happy memories.
Title: Crimson Sunbird Artist: Castor Backstory: “We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” – Unknown. . Crimson Sunbird [LC] – Southern Asia – Huge Thanks to @bryanltm for the permission 🙇♂️
Title: The Vision Artist: Pigi Glarou Backstory: Lord of the Rings theme. Elrond is having the vision of Estel, aka Aragorn as the future king of men and the one who will stand against darkness and unite them. This is why he named him Estel, which means hope. I chose this one, for these times we all need hope. Graphite and color pencils on A3 paper of 220gr
The last of the @ecolinedeutschland ink watercolors by @royaltalensfrance
A little ginkgo that has already found its new home
Always so pleasantly surprised by the intensity of these colors!
Title: Youngest Sister Artist: Maria Gehrke Backstory: Another portrait done. And again one of my sisters, this time my youngest one. Now I can finally send off all the packages.
I think captured her well, but am a little disappointed in the background color. I think I made it too vibrant / too much color, so the subtle changes in her skin color disappear a little and make the painting look flatter than it did before adding the background. But overall I am pretty happy. I still have many more portraits to go to get better 😁
Title: Blakistons Fish Owl Artist: Rachel E Backstory: This endangered owl species is the largest owl species on earth, native to SE Asia, China and Japan. Due to destruction of their riverine forest habitat for human settlements and dams only about 1200 individuals remain.
