Artober 12: Meh Realism Meh (in progress)

I’m trying to replicate this AMAAAAZING watercolor sky demonstration and failing. I’m not calling it a complete fail (there’s time!), but there’s no way I’m going to get the result I want. That’s mainly because the guy painting in the…

Artober 11: So many colors!

I’ve found my new favorite! This is definitely the most colorful and the least realistic watercolor I’ve done, and it’s also the first I’d frame (in fact, I think I might!). It reminds me of 1960s and ’70s illustrations. All…

I better not mess this one up. I painted as much as I could without a thorough drying session, and I’ll plan on finishing tomorrow. I love the bright colors! The heavy line is a tree shadow, so hopefully it’ll…

Artober 6 Progress Report!

Yeah, I’m back on watercolors today. I needed a break from blue-land, so I figured I’d try a sunset. It’s another tutorial, this time from The Frugal Crafter. I could finish it tonight, but I’m so tired I can barely see…

Artober 5: Progress and Palette!

Yep, I just added more trees. I’m soooo slow at painting that it took me an hour. Okay, I did it and redid it (especially that misty bit at the bottom, which still needs work). Arts are hard! I’m really happy…

Artober 4 Progress Report!

Yeah, it’s only the 4th, and I’ve already reevaluated my life decisions. Trying to create a complete painting of any sort every day is tiring to the point of torturous, especially since I have an 8-week old puppy to keep…
