“Ivy Vine” Pattern

The Mystiq Arts shops on Society6 and Redbubble have been updated with my latest botanical pattern of ivy vines. Which colour combination do you prefer? Me, I’ve fallen in love with the blue vines.

I’ll see you in the next post. Cheers!

Portfolio Update

This month, I’ve added two more artworks to my portfolio: The Fox and The Hamster. I’ve found myself in a bit of an “animal phase” and so I’ve really enjoyed creating content like this. I wonder what the future brings… but I’m pretty sure the next update will include a botanical pattern and hopefully much more. Stay tuned!

I’ll see you in the next post. Cheers!

“The Hamster” Art Prints on Etsy

I just updated my Etsy shop with another product: The Hamster, pencil drawing. I like drawing animals like this. Fur is an interesting topic, quite challenging to draw but at the same time highly rewarding if you manage to place the highlights and shadows right.

As you can see, I’m offering this print in both vertical and horizontal orientation. Quite convenient, if I may say so myself. Which one would you choose?

Cheers!

“Turtle Love” Art Prints Available

Hello, everyone! The Mystiq Arts Etsy shop has been updated with a set of 25 prints of my Turtle Love gouache painting. Being limited edition, they’re up for grabs!

I’m really satisfied with the finish of the prints. I must say, they turned out great.

I’ll see you in the next post. Cheers!

“Turtle Love” Video

Now you can watch my entire 24-hour process of creating the Turtle Love gouache painting on Youtube! I learned a lot while painting this. Above all, I think I generally need to apply thicker layers than I do most of the time. It’ll be interesting to see how my next painting will turn out in comparison to this one. That being said, I am quite happy with how this piece turned out.

I hope you like the painting, as well as watching this video. Thank you so much in advance!

I’ll see you in the next post. Cheers!

The Fox

My latest illustration is called The Fox. It was sketched out and painted in Procreate, in digital pencil and watercolours, and it took me about five hours to complete. I must say I’m very satisfied with how it turned out! I couldn’t choose between these three beautiful background colours, so I chose to feature them all. If you like this piece, you can buy high-quality A4 art prints from my Etsy shop. They look so crisp, vibrant and beautiful.

What do you think of this piece? And which colour variation is your favourite?

Cheers!

“Bee Drawing” Giclée Print

Now it’s finally finished, signed and uploaded to Etsy – my lovely little honeybee drawing. I really enjoyed drawing this fellow: especially the rich blacks on the legs and the eye. For this piece I used an HB mechanical pencil, a blending stump and an eraser. It took me just above five hours to complete.

“Bee.” Pencil drawing, May 2021.

If you like this drawing, you should check it out on Etsy where A5 prints in high quality are available for purchase. Shipping is free, as with all of my art prints.

Have a lovely week: I’ll see you in the next post. Cheers!

Downloadable “Poppies”

This week I uploaded my poppy illustration to my Etsy store. If you like these delicate flowers, you can download them there almost entirely for free. Two different backgrounds are included – white and turquoise – and the images do have high resolution.

I quite like illustrating flowers. I think I should do so more often in the future.

Well, that’s all for now. I’ll see you in the next post! Cheers!

Golden Butterfly

Here’s one of my latest illustrations – Golden Butterfly – painted digitally in a realistic watercolour style. I enjoyed creating this piece, and I like the fiery colours of the wings. I think they turned out quite well. (As you may have guessed, this is the illustration featured in the Golden Butterflies pattern.)

… Oh, and by the way: Did you know that you can now purchase a high-resolution digital version of this illustration? It barely costs anything and can be downloaded right away. You can find it on my Etsy shop.

I’ll see you in the next post. Cheers!
