I’ve been incognito .. and I have no excuse. But here’s a bunch of stuff I did over the last 9 days. I got caught up with the gorgeous gowns at the Cannes Festival . I couldn’t help but illustrate Aishwarya Rai’s gown by Elie Saab. Quite the mermaid look, don’t you think ?
Florals for my watercolor practice …
Working on this spread to create a pattern and its emerging.
Cocktails for Friday 🙂
And then … Memorial Day weekend.. I was sapped . No energy and I was in my PJs for two days. No fun . This is what I pretty much looked like with a gorgeous day outside. No fun .
Thankfully, I was back to normal on Monday – armed and dangerous 😉
Today has been a slow day … I hope to pick it up and create more soon.
Every artist has their own style – one that keeps evolving. Mine has too. I always painted as a kid . Didn’t really have a preference then. After college, I took up oil painting. A few years ago , I was all about acrylic paints. Then I started to do a mix of acrylic and pen and then scanning it into photoshop/illustrator to play with it on the computer. I would like to do that again.
Lately, I am enjoying watercolors and pen. What makes me most happy is when I can combine the two . Its fun to let the watercolors do their own thing and then I can go in draw in lines, shades, doodles that I can control. What do I like to draw ? A lot of stuff. I tend to sketch and then want to go in a fill in with patterns, images , doodles. That seems to really be my thing .
What do you think is your style ? Has it evolved, changed ? Have you tried something that you’ve sworn off of only to discover that its actually the coolest thing ever ?
