I started a tumblr to serve as a sort-of instagram sketchblog. Its easy to post from instagram to tumblr, which I wish I could do to this current blog. I'm pretty much posting things that I don't see worthy of taking the greater time to post here. Most of these are short little sayings and words, if you have any ideas for words you'd like to see, let me know.
Some more watercolor flowers, this time different variations of dahlias. I feel like I'm channeling high school Kristin with the traditional realism. It's so relaxing to work on these. I started this one just as I was starting to watch 'Lie to Me' on netflix. I've gotten through 18 episodes, so that makes about 12 hours of painting for this one. Much more than the last paintings.
I've been practicing watercolors for a little while now. I mostly just doodle around with them. I wanted to do something a little more realistic, but I made up most of these flowers without photo reference. These are definitely parts I like more than others. More photo reference might have helped this. The original is getting sent off to you cousin in Virginia. :)
Got a new watercolor sketchbook. Work has been ultra busy lately. Halloween set in store! Go look out for that at a Target near you! I've also been taking a screenprinting class. Big fail. I think I'll stick with my gocco printer. :)
