“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!

“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!

Portfolio Update

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.

Cheers, and I’ll see you in the next post!

“Till Medmänniskan”

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!

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

Etsy Shop Update

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!

Cheers!

Mystiq Arts – an Art Youtuber…?

You’d better believe it! From now on I will release time lapse painting videos on Youtube as often as I can. First up is my watercolour pose study which I named “Rosehip”.

So, I really think you should head over to my Youtube channel and subscribe right away! That would really make my day. I’ve only just begun…

Oh, and did you know I composed the music as well? I’ve gathered news on all of my music stuff on a separate Facebook page, should you be interested in hearing more from me.

Cheers!
