succulent paintings

Succulents are very therapeutic to paint. Even though it took me awhile to understand when sketching. I love using the green and blue hues together and play it a little with oranges/ violets.

Using Hot press paper is better when painting floral related paintings. you want the smooth texture from the paper to be able to add in more details.

This is probably going to be my final post of the year. Say hello 2017 with more challenges and exciting adventures!

Stay gold fellas!

watercolour illustrations - Autumn 2016

Hello Everyone! I hope you're having a great holiday season.

I painted these items that are related to Autumn ( at least from what i have searched on google) Never have I ever experience autumn season before but I do think Autumn is the season of the cozy! 

I had the most fun painting the scarf and the pinecone -in which I thought I might mess them up because of the details and all. I doubt myself in the beginning but look who finished it lol. self doubt is very toxic.
