Last Etsy shop update is all about the little nudibranch I painted in digital watercolour a while ago. You’ll find the fine art prints by clicking this link, which will take you to my Etsy store. Enjoy!
Here’s the story behind the artwork:
I didn’t quite know what to paint, so I asked my Instagram followers for suggestions. One of them suggested this strange sea creature, which I’d never heard of before. I was intrigued and went for it. At times I didn’t quite know what I was painting… But I liked the challenge.
I hope you’ll have a nice weekend, and I’ll see you in the next post. Cheers!
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!
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!
During May, I’ve been working on two rather big projects. One of them is a gouache painting on watercolour paper, featuring two sea turtles; the other is a pencil drawing of a honeybee. Both have now been added to my portfolio.
I’m very happy with what this month’s work resulted in. Now I’m quite curious to see what the future holds… Next update, I hope, will include a fox illustration and perhaps a pencil drawing of a cute little hamster, among some other work.
Eva Bernodt recently released her beautiful poetry book called Till medmänniskan (To the Fellow Human Being). She’d seen my penguin painting in gouache and watercolour and wanted to feature it in the book, which of course made me very happy. The book is full of beautiful poems and wise thoughts. Thank you, Eva, for letting my little penguins peek up amongst the pages!
Now, the Rosehip giclée prints have been added to my pretty little Etsy store. This limited edition features only ten copies, so they’re really quite special. The artwork is printed in high quality on fine art paper (230 gsm) and shipping is included. Follow this link should you be interested in checking them out, or reading more about the prints.
This artwork was quite challenging to make since it had been a long time since I last painted with watercolours, but I enjoyed it very much. I especially found drawing and painting the dress quite fun. There’s actually a painting video on Youtube taking you through the entire process of creating this particular piece which I encourage you to watch if you liked this painting.
Well, that’s it for now. I’ll see you in the next post!
