I’ve been painting a lot of florals these days, they are the most beautiful things to paint. I’ve been playing with different colours and techniques in the last few weeks and finally I can see I’ve improved a bit after so many trials and errors! 🙂
I’m pretty happy that my hard work paid off, I guess I just have to keep painting!:)
I hadn’t painted for some time and Jean Paul Gaultier’s exhibition fueled the urge for getting back into painting. It was truly breathtaking and quite possibly one of the best exhibitions I’ve ever seen.
“You are a true designer when people recognise your work without even looking at the label. This is the case for Jean Paul Gaultier.” – Pierre Cardin.
Above is my favourite quote from the exhibition. I believe it is every designer/artist’s dream to be recognised by their work. I’ve had a struggle to find my own colour in illustration for a long time adapting bits and pieces of style and technique of illustrators I admire. I know it’s going to be a long journey to get to where I’d like to be, and I am more than happy to share my evolving work with you:)
I heart painting heart:)
I’m obsessed with painting gems. They are so beautiful and watercolur is the perfect medium to illustrate their natural form and colour. I will keep experimenting painting different types of gems until I perfect my technique.
I’m going to the States tomorrow for a month, yay! So this is my last post till I come back.
I wanted to paint something special on my birthday that was on last week and this was created. Quite different from what I normally paint, but it was really fun! I will definitely paint more gems when I come back…
Will miss Melbourne, painting and blogging, but oh well, it’s time to have fun;)
Flowers are very hard to paint but I love painting them, just need more practice…
My first painting on a new sketchbook, a lot more to paint:)
Painting is such a great form of meditation for me, I feel relaxed, totally zoned out when I paint, much like a dream. I spent hours experimenting 2 different colour combinations last weekend, and this is one of my favourites.
I’m very grateful to have the skill to paint, and for this moment to share this post with you:)
Two of my freelance work finishing up soon = More time for illustrations, yay!!:)
In love with hot pink colour, so pretty!
