man in plaid

$50 - 8x6"watercolour painting
Since I've been so interested in working on portraits lately, painting fabric with patterns, such as plaid, comes into play. Something I'm really looking forward to exploring in future works.

These two flowers fell into each other as soon as I put them in water, like a couple of star-crossed lovers. ; )

Inktober Portrait

The great thing about participating in challenges like InkTober is that it forces me out of my comfort zone. The idea is to work in ink everyday for the whole month. So, while in my portrait session, I blocked in with pencil then worked with a 3 micron pen. I never do that and I may not have tried if it wasn't for InkTober! 
From there, I tried something else I haven't done for awhile, which is one colourful wash from top to bottom, on the shadow side only. This approach often allows for lots of colour!

in a galaxy far far away


I had a blast painting this one!

rise and shine


I'm really enjoying these small fresh watercolour paintings of flowers that I've been doing. I'm trying not to overthink anything, not the set up and not the approach, so that they are as light and clean as possible. : )

I painted this little cutie from a photo a friend gave me. A bunch of raccoons came and visited his garden. They made themselves at home. : )
