I made this little piece a while back, when I was getting used to returning to Australia. I love the smell of eucalyptus and this koala is just too cute!
I experimented with using watercolour and Copic markers together, and I quite like the outcome.
I love painting flowers and ferns, their shapes and colours are just so appealing. These paintings aren’t perfect, but I like them anyway.
I’m always inspired by nature. The beautiful colours and feelings it evokes. I’m never more relaxed and happy than when I’m at the beach or surrounded by greenery.
WOW it’s been a long time since posting! I thought I would have heaps of time to draw/paint while travelling, but that hasn’t exactly happened (and the few I have done, I haven’t had a chance to post!).
So I finally sat down in El Retiro Park, Madrid, and starting a painting. Still a work in progress, many more plants needed here! But I’m learning a lot about watercolours each time I experiment. The plants are dry paper, wet paint. The size of the brush helped make the shapes of the leaves. The water is wet paper, wet paint. And mixed in some grey Copic markers and black fineliners as well. So glad my siblings gave me a travel art kit before I left overseas!
I found this lyric to be just so amazingly touching and beautiful…
it got stuck in my head for DAYS! and I just had to draw it 🙂
