“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 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!

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!

“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!
