Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, everyone! I know this post is a bit late, since it’s past December 25, but since Christmas is 12 days long, I hope you still have time to enjoy this post!

I’d originally drawn the below drawing with pastels on common printer paper, but it turned out so awfully that I had to redo it in Photoshop. The final product didn’t turn out that well either, so I’m posting my family’s Christmas decorations to make up for it!

Sea Cliff Drawing

Hi, all! I wanted to show you one of my recent completed pen and watercolor drawings. It took a really long time, but I think it was worth it! Here are the process photos:

I can’t believe it’s already been three months since I last posted… I’ll try to upload more frequently from now on!

I’m off to Melbourne tonight, so I may post some photos when I get back!

Comments are appreciated as always!

Second Pen Drawing of Bird

I was so pleased with my first watercolor and pen piece that I decided to try it again, this time with… birds. Again 🙂 I don’t know, I think they’re cute and a good subject to draw!

So, here was my initial pen sketch:

And here it is after I colored it with watercolor:

I might add more watercolor, but wanted to show you the progress shots first.

Colored Bird Drawing

I tried coloring the first pen drawing of a bird that I posted around two weeks ago with watercolor. I really liked how it turned out! Adding color really made it much more dynamic, in a way. Here it is:

Watercolor and Pen Bird

Since this is one of my first (successful) pieces with watercolor and pen (the ones that I previously did were so bad and childish that I left them uncompleted), I would really appreciate comments 🙂

More Pen Drawings

I found that I really enjoyed drawing in pen, so I tried sketching a bit more by myself. Since I’d started with drawing birds, I thought I would continue drawing them, so that I could build up my confidence. Here are the two sketches that I did:

Bird Drawing I Bird Drawing II

I much prefer the second drawing that I did, because the highlights are more obvious.

Look forward to more pen drawing posts in the future! I already have a couple lined up that are ready to post.

Pen Drawing of Bird

My art teacher (who is absolutely fantastic) told me that I have an illustration style – which I agree with completely – and that I should try pen drawings. This is the first one I did, which I did with her help and guidance.

Bird Pen Drawing

I’m extremely happy with it! I’m doing a couple of sketches by myself, and will keep you posted about my progress.

Fishes Underwater

Hello, everyone! As I said in my last post, I have managed to do quite a bit of art ever since school ended. However, I haven’t posted them… So that’s what I’ll do today!

The first piece I want to show you is an oil painting that took me around 3 months to complete. For my gap year project, I want to illustrate the creation of the world as told in the Book of Genesis for children. I want this to be the “sea” part of the book.

Fishes Underwater

I hope you enjoy it! There’s more to come 🙂
